Awesome work!!!

I also hit the another milestone yesterday and still ahead of target to do the Million - but finding it harder at the moment as I have started running my steps and my legs need recovery days to get over that!! Had to take 2 rest days in the last 7. On the flip side - can now run 2km’s
without stopping - aiming for 5 by the end of August!!

Great Job! Have passed 800,000 now and still on target! And hit my fundraising target of £500 this week.

Managed to squeeze in 50,000 since my last post on Friday…..with days remaining I only need to average 8000 odd a day to get it over the line! Although I want to finish around 1.1m if I can!

15 days to go and 262,307 steps until I reach 1.7 million steps. I need to average just under 17,500 steps a day to complete the distance. Should be doable at work. I've missed not doing my other walks this year, hopefully I'll be able to sign up to a few more next year.

Well with days to go until the end of the challenge the 1.7million steps is in sight. I have now completed 1,578,489 steps. So that's just 122,511 to go.
As one challenge ends another one starts. I'm signed up to do the 100 miles in October challenge also for Diabetes UK.

I am on 940,000 - have planned a grande finale walk for Saturday - 25k’s - close it in style. Think my next challenge will be a 10k run - going to start training for that now

Yesterday - I completed my close out walk.

I have 16,000 steps left until I hit a million which I will complete today with the dog that has done about 600,000 with me already!

Most of my million were long walks that elevated the heart rate or were at a jogging pace either on a running machine or in parks - They included walks along beaches, up hills, along coast paths, through forests and around city centres.

Have gone from being type 2 diabetic to non-diabetic hyperglycaemic. Lost 3 stone and have got to a point where I can run 5kms without stopping.

Thank you diabetes UK for the challenge - I hope the £500 I raised helps you continue helping people like me.

Smashed it.

I've done it!!! I've passed the 1.7 million step mark. It's my day off work today and I will admit I'm going nowhere! I've done regular walks on my days off to make sure I get my steps in, but today I can't be bothered! Lol. Instead I'm sitting and watching TV whilst painting flower pots!
