The results will be interesting indeed.

PedometerTuesday's Cuban presses were enough to show me that a 24hr break from lifting was not quite enough; with the cold frustratingly still in force.

Trying hard to avoid making eye contact with the weights (that's really all it takes) I decided instead to do a bit of walking - there's a national park around the corner, with a variety of hills to make things more interesting. I've long been curious about just how much walking I do in everyday life (I don't have a car, and tend to walk everywhere), and ended up getting a pedometer.

With several experts seemingly agreeing on the target of 10,000 steps (approx 13km/8m) per day, the results will be interesting indeed.
