That is the number of steps I walked yesterday according to my new (replacement) pedometer. I'm disappointed, although it should probably be about 1000 steps higher since I forgot to put it back on after my yoga class.
Many walking clubs use 10,000 steps as a goal for what could be considered an "active" lifestyle, which is a great goal. But I think that what I will do is figure out how much I generally walk in a day and then walk and additional 2000-3000 steps.
I've already racked up 5618 steps today. Let's hope I don't lose this pedometer!
