2000 steps = 1 mile- Appropriately

1500 steps = 1 kilometre - Approximately

For me:
11 x 2 = 22 steps Approximately - From couch to refrigerator and back.

Appropriately:

68 Trips in Kilometres

90 Trips in Miles

As I walk 20 miles a day, this equals 20 Miles x 90 Trips back and forth from couch to refrigerator = 1800

So their you have it, for me, I need to take 1800 trips from my couch to my refrigerator and back to the couch, to get my daily 20 mile walk.

Just putting things in perspective, no calories were consumed in this exercise.

How many trips are you making to your refrigerator and back in a day?

My goal for the past two years has been to do a full split, and it will continue to be my main goal until I achieve it.

Three years ago I underwent a double lung transplant, and I am currently in the hospital after having had a serious bout of pneumonia (along with other complications) in mid-January. So my current fitness challenge is to work on my PT regimen and get strong enough to leave the hospital and resume my at-home karate training, hopefully by the end of March. The good news is that I have managed to remain COVID-free through all of this.

Incredible SLK59 with all you have endured and continued with your MA journey. It really goes to show how your spirit is a winning one.

I second that! What a horrible experience that must have been! Keep up the good work, and you'll get there!

Wow, it's great that you've managed to avoid COVID! Sorry to hear of these issues though, Scott.
