I ditched my car in June and started getting the train instead. This helped me with achieving about 6000 steps daily out of my 10000 steps target.
I noticed today that I walked from my office to the train station without getting out of breath and I walked it faster too.
When I started, it used to take me 20 mins, I'm now down to 10mins. I would also be gasping for breath by the time I got to either the office or the train station.
It's taken me 3 months but I'm so glad I stuck with it. My next goal is to start power walking the distance and to walk even further by taking a longer route
