But I have been counting steps and trying to walk 10000 steps a day for about 10 years - or even more! When I was working I used to walk every lunchtime and also get off and on the underground one or two stops earlier/later. Now I'm retired I still walk - we have lots of lovely walks across the fields near where I live and we have a Sunday walking group to get out together. I am finding it more difficult to find time - I volunteer for lots of things - but these are often also exercise related - gardening for our 'in bloom' events so it all helps! We also have a caravan at wells next the sea- lots of lovely coastal walks there!!
