How easy is it to walk 10,000 steps a day, really?

I’ve been doing this for 30 days now and decided to write about it – almost 365,000 steps!

100 days of 10,000 steps a day

10,000 steps a day.

10,000 steps is what what the NHS recommends we all walk every day: “Setting yourself a target of walking 10,000 steps a day can be a fun way of increasing the amount of physical activity you do”.

My initial reaction? Fun? Really? Maybe?

How realistic or easy is 10,000 steps EVERY DAY?

  • In the middle of winter?
  • When it’s raining?
  • When you’re cold?
  • When you’re tired?
  • When you ate too much over Christmas?
  • When you have no waterproof clothing?
  • When, after a week of over-enthusiastically walking everywhere and telling all your mates about it, there’s too much chafing because you’re not actually used to walking that far and don’t have, nor can you afford more to the point, any “sportswear” or clothing to make this said walking more comfortable?

Making of ‘Sharks’ video & upcoming performance 25th November, Liverpool.

Jo Bywater

Earlier this week I headed out to meet with Luke Moore (my collaborator for Sharks with Operation Lightfoot) and Jazamin Sinclair(multi – artist and in this case, videographer and photographer..) to get filming our video for said song.  We wrote the song a while ago now and after piecing bits together are a step closer to releasing it! For this I am excited, I love this song.  After brainstorming ideas a couple of months ago and then Luke fine-tuning them,  we’re off…………

The morning looked like this… a coffee, chat, catch up and superfood salad… plans and directions decided, satiated and ready to go film….

We ventured various places over the course of the day.  The trees, the beach, face down in the sand, avoiding statues, dogs and boats.  We squelched down dingy railway alleys and bin alleys in the dark, ran through doors and…

In July 2014 Bill Mudge and I were given the opportunity to stay in the TANE house, Isle of Wight, UK.  The award-winning house was featured as part of the Grand Designs series when it was built in 2010 and was short-listed for the Grand Designs Award and in 2013 was nominated as one of Kevin McCloud’s Top Ten Grand Design Projects following their 100th series. In addition, Tane won the Architect’s Journal Small Build Award 2011 and the RIBA 2011 (Isle of Wight) Award. It was designed by its then owner, Lincoln Miles, and influenced by his partner, artist Lisa Traxler.

Anyone who was in Liverpool city centre on Saturday afternoon will have seen a strange little parade as we made our way, followed by our friends and family, from St George’s Hall to the restaurant for our wedding breakfast. The deed has been done. Judging by comments made on our official photographer’s sneaky, one shot, upload the suit made as much of an impression as the dress.
Staying in a hotel in your ‘home’ city is an unusual experience. Part mini moon, part hiding, we checked in the day before just to relax. Cannot thank the staff at Z Hotel enough. Some mad woman called them in a panic a few weeks back as every hotel in Liverpool booked up and the web page kept throwing me out. They took the booking and, true to their word, came up with something special for our wedding. We had the best room…
