"Why am I doing this?
Because the average Australian walks 9,695 steps daily. The average Swiss person walks 9,650 steps daily. About 5 miles
How far does the average American walk? 5,117 steps…350 yards in a day…That’s less than 4 football fields! :(
How boring is walking??!! I know, I know. But crazy as it sounds, we human beings are totally designed to walk. If you think about it, a normal person (normal fitness and no injuries) can pretty much walk forever. Give them some comfortable shoes (or barefoot if walking on grass), find a way to feed them on the go, and what’s stopping them other than sleep?"
