I’m walking and singing in the rain

The heavens opened today, after quite a long (mostly) dry spell here in Dublin, and it hasn’t stopped raining all day!

The dog still needed walking however, so I reluctantly donned my waterproofs and found an umbrella, and manfully set out into the cold and wet. We managed a complete circuit of the local park, which meant that I reached my daily target of 60 minutes of walking on my Fitbit.

These Fitbit fitness trackers are really good for people like me who relish in statistics! I can count the number of steps, the kilometres walked, the calories burnt, the number of stairs I’ve climbed, and check my heart rate throughout the day!

I love the fact that I can see my fitness activity over time, and see the distances I cover.

Here’s the stats for the last 9¬†months:

I like the fact that over the course of less than a year I’ve gone from walking on average 4.5km a day to 9km – doubling my distance. That’s got to be good for my health, and would probably earn me a few Body Magic stickers if I could be bothered to claim them!
