    Sounds like a lot of exercise to me! I am still trying with my 10k steps. Each week I am getting better so there is incremental change – averaging over 7k a day now. I was struggling to get to an average of 3k initially.

      All sounds good to me. You’ll get there by slowly building up and then there’ll be no stopping you 🙂
