WTF Wednesday my fitbit stats are solid

I’m not stroking my own ego or maybe I am but I have to say that I’m usually pretty proud of my fitbit stats at the end of the week.  I typically rack up between 110,000-140,000 steps a week even on weeks that I’m walking and not running.  That’s not an easy thing to do since my day job is typically spent at home on the computer 99% of the time.

Not that I’m competitive or anything but I take my stats pretty serious.  I mean, I push really hard to get those 10,000 steps a day if I’m not running and even more when I am running. I go the extra mile to make sure that after work I’m not sedentary and I keep moving throughout the evening.  I love hitting 20,000 and even 30,000 steps in a day.

And not that I stalk other people’s fitbit stat’s or anything but I’m really surprised at how often my stats seem to be higher than people who have much more athletic ability than me.  Especially high profile peeps.  Anyhow, yesterday I was reading some running news online and I came upon a post from Ryan Hall and he posted his fitbit stats from last week.  No, really, that’s how it happened.  Aaaaaaaaaaanyhow, check out these stats.

Ryan Hall Stats


Let’s remember that he was running in a little competition called the World Marathon Challenge where he ran 7 marathons in 7 days on 7 continents so I guess that kind of explains his stellar stats.  Let’s see what you got this week  Ryan, bring it beeyotch!

WTF, it’s Wednesday and I got my game face on!   Not that I’m competitive or anything.

Are you competitive with your fitbit stats and challenges?  Even with strangers and in your own mind?  Just askin.

  1. Wow–those are some crazy stats. I don’t have a fitbit and I don’t count steps. I just try to be active outside of my workouts. I have to be really careful because I am an exercise addict “in remission” so it’s important for me to track just enough but keep myself in check when my mind tries to get me to keep doing more and more. I spent far too many years hitting crazy workout numbers each day and through a lot of hard work, I am happily down to a normal amount 🙂

      • Oh, believe me…I know. It’s all relative. Compared to where I was, I am so much better but compared to the “average” person (or the opinion of many of my friends) I am still a crazy woman that works out 5-6 days per week!! I am glad we have our online groups because we are each others’ people!!

  2. How do you get your steps in the days you dont run? I guess having dogs help. If I don’t work and don’t get a run in I struggle with steps.

    What was Ryan Hall doing that he only got 2.5 hours of sleep? You would think he would be resting during the flights.

    • On days that I don’t run, walking the dogs does help but I also set an alarm on my watch and make myself get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. After my work day I do housework or go outside work in my yard, shopping is always an easy way to get steps in 😉 I just make myself move.
      I’m not sure why exactly but I think a lot of the people running in the world marathon challenge had trouble sleeping on the plane. I’m sure a lot of it probably had to do with time change but still that’s some crazy stats.

      • I still need to get settled into a new routine. I’d have to make 1000 laps in my apartment to get 5 minutes of activity lol
