Or do you want us to walk a 100 more steps each of the three walking days? or what exactly did that challenge mean? I already have a goal for my self to try to walk at least 7500 steps each day and I usually make it unless, I have something special going on that day ...

I started off with walking and then did the "couch potato to 5k" plan and ran my first 5k in Sept. I hurt my back and side shortly after joining SP, so walking and running/jogging is the main thing that my doctor recommended for me to continue my weight loss. So glad to join...
