Haha. Yeah I got quite close to some sneezers a few times! I might have to not trust Siri directions next time...

Just curious, are the different shades of colour an indication of how socially distant you were being?
also it does seem a long way round of getting to the house across the road.

I’ve been there and done that already!

Although some of the family suggested alternate interpretations! πŸ™„

That's a great opportunity to make some art @25 quid
Just keep it clean πŸ˜‰
My wife and often go out for a walk. 4 miles and it’s a little over 9,000 steps. My wife, doing the same walk gets over a thousand steps more. So she achieves her 10k and I don’t! She is seven inches shorter than me and has little legs!
Yeah @G4RHL, leg length makes a significant different to step counts. I think that’s why shorties like the 10,000 target! 😜
If you count active calories instead, lankies and biggies get the advantage...
Lies, damn lies and statistics.

I thought the excercise apps were calibrated individually, they know your stats, distance steps position and time.

Dunno about androiders though...
Yup they do @woz. Hence steps are a crude measure that doesn’t reflect your actual energy expended. Heavier people also exert more effort/energy to move their mass compared to a smaller lighter person does over the same distance.

Said another way, short legged folk are stuck in low gear and clock up steps more quickly, but don’t burn more calories or travel any further.

I'm outlawing shortist comments, on the grounds that I'm really 6'3" but everyone else suffers from astigmatism.

Mind you, might be a different story tomorrow

5 10 same as me, so i think maybe marc took a bus for the last part of his walk.

Same here @BevΒ 

Glad to say that ye olde back is finally on the mend, but my phyio is not asking me to do any walking. He’s got me doing a lot of indoor stretches and exercises though! (Who knew getting up off a chair without using my arms could be so hardΒ :laughing: )
