I Walked Four Million Steps

Last Wednesday I passed the 4,000,000 step threshold for roughly 1900 miles of walking since January 2012. I had increased my steps a little each week and averaged nearly 13,500 steps each day the week before. Things were rolling until I started to get a little “tweak” in my left hip. I took it easy for a couple of days and it felt better until I took a walk the next morning and walked up the two flights of stairs to my office floor. I can best describe the pain as what I might imagine it is like to have someone drive a hot knife into my ass cheek as I walked up the steps. Oh and after they stabbed me they twisted the knife.  You’ll be proud that I didn’t scream…not even a whimper.
