We've started a steps challenge at work and to keep motivated, but also because I've been wanting to do these things, I've joined The Conqueror Challenges. I'm walking through Angkor Wat, in Cambodia, from home. I'm enjoying the challenge, however, you need to have your phone with you at all times if you want to actually look at the places you're walking past. It would be nice if it vibrated once you arrived at a location because sometimes I'm just walking around my house as I clean and it's not useful to be staring at a screen while doing that.
I've been checking out the places I've passed by in a day. This is the shortest challenge they have and I'm 58% through it. And a neat part of the challenge is that I chose bottles as my contribution, which means that each time I hit a milestone, 10 plastic bottles are removed from the ocean.
Angkor Wat was originally built for the Hindu God, Vishnu. Fun Fact: Vishnu, like Lord Shiva, is a fan of Cannabis. Perhaps I should have started this challenge in April ;)
My progress has taken a hit though. After having a big day of steps, I seem to have pulled my calf muscle. I'm actually surprised because it was my hip flexor that was sore by the end of Monday. I'm also dealing with an infected ingrown toenail that I'm hoping to get in to see the doctor about as it's not getting better.
I'm not up to 10,000 steps a day yet. That day was more than double what I was averaging, which was about 3,500-4,000 steps. I got almost 9,000 steps on Monday.
More annoying to me than the injury itself is that a lot of my other goals around the house require me to be mobile. Ice seems to be helping it hurt a bit less. Hopefully I'll be able to do more next week.
