I Am Outpacing & Out Climbing All Of My Garmin Peers, Again. (SMILE).
>The key here is that this is for my (rather advanced) age group, i.e., 65-69 (as you can see at the top). Garmin does NOT give us any clues as to how big (or more to the point, small) this group might be. For all I know there might just be a handful of us in this bracket — in which case this metric is pretty useless.
I am also mature enough to realize that there will be a larger population of non-Garmin users who walk more STEPS than I do. However, unless they happen to be a professional Sherpa in the Himalayas or a tour guide in the Alps, I doubt there are too many who climb as many floors/day as I do. And in case you are wondering, it averaged 56 floors/day over the last month. That is 560′ elevation gain each day.
As for steps, it was 15,260 steps/day over the last month. Not bad considering that half of that was in February with snow/ice on the ground and rather frigid temps.
It still makes me smile and that alone is reward enough. SMILE.
