Status: Walk for Fitness #1
Current status update – after the first 5 days of the QUENTIQ “Walk for Fitness” public walking challenge.
The current leader of the Walking Challenge has been walking over 100km in 5 days, this is equal to 5 times a half marathon (21.1km). Yesterdays male challenge leader achieved 29km in 8 walking sequences. The current female challenge leader walked already a total distance of 32.3km. The lead is constantly changing depending on the user activity and time zones.
Another anonymous user has provided me with his QUENTIQ tracker screen as proof of his latest walking achievement of over 17.4km in more or less 3 hours.
We have also new users like Chris, who are where active walking on some days almost 15km on one piece with a average speed of 5.9km/h which is very nice too! Keep it up!
Some insights about my own best walking activity – yesterday. I walked from the office directly home. The walk duration was 1:17 hour for a distance of 7.2km with an average walking speed of 5.6 km/h. The stats say I used a total of 330 kcal Energy having a ascent of 66m and a descent of 31m. Lucky me the rain just started when I arrived home :-)
