Icy streets and step counters

Saturday, December 07, 2013

Wow, I got a new insight today, thanks to my Spark Activity Tracker. We had a bit of an ice storm last night, just enough to turn all the sidewalks into skating rinks. I took the dog out walking on our usual routine path. It's .75 miles long and I average 1600 steps walking it. But the ice meant that I had to be much more cautious, and take smaller steps. So what is usually 1600 steps turned into 2200!

    I was walking my little dogs last evening, paying attention to the icy spots - until ... my phone alarm went off and I turned my head towards the pocket it was in - hit a slanted alley druiveway with black ice - oops! Fortunately, altho I have a big dark bruise with swelling on my hip, it doesn't hurt that much. On the plus side, yeah, I got more little steps in.
