As I think I mentioned, my son got me this nice computerized pedometer as a Christmas gift, a "Fitbit Force". It comes pre-set with some default goals, the chief one being ten thousands steps a day.
And it turns out that I happened to be coming in at just around ten thousand steps a day with my existing workaday normal activities. On average, a little over. But, some days, a little under - unless I make a point of doing a little extra last-minute walking.
As a result, my trusted canine associate is now averaging just a little farther on his 10 pm walk.
So perhaps the greatest beneficiary of my desire to log
ten thousand steps... is my dog.
