14 Day Power Walking Challenge Instructions

The goal of this power walking challenge is to increase your daily steps over a period of two weeks. You’ll start at your current daily step count and build as you go. Make it a competition with yourself, or a friend, for extra fun!

Follow these guidelines to complete my power walking challenge:

Days 1-3:

Start with your current daily step count. Whether it’s 2,000 or 5,000 steps, take note of it.

Each day, add an extra 500 steps to your baseline. This could mean a quick stroll around your neighborhood, parking a bit farther, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

By the end of Day 3, you should aim to reach around 6,000 steps per day.

Days 4-7:

Now, let’s ramp it up. Increase your daily steps by 1,000 each day. This might require a bit more intentionality, but it’s worth it!

Utilize breaks during work or leisure time to squeeze in short walks.

By Day 7, aim for approximately 8,000 steps a day.

Days 8-14:

The final push! Increase your daily steps by 500 each day until you hit the 10,000-step mark.

Make walking a part of your routine. Take longer walks during lunch breaks or after dinner. Celebrate your progress and persistence!

Power Walking Challenge Tips

These tips will help you get the most out of my 14 day power walking challenge while keeping yourself comfortable and pain free.

  1. Use a fitness tracker or smartphone app to monitor your steps. Aim for 10,000 as your end goal, but any increase in activity is a win!
  2. Remember, every step counts. Daily activities will contribute to your total steps, but intentional walking workouts will help you reach your goal faster.
  3. Stay hydrated while walking using a few of my favorite tips for drinking more water every day.
  4. Invest in a great pair of shoes! Poor shoes can lead to injury, blisters, bruising, plantar fasciitis, and more. This is my guide to choosing the best walking shoes.
  5. Try a trendy walking pad to get more steps during the workday if you’re stuck at your desk.

Calculation Tip: If you aren’t using a step tracker, remember that approximately every 2,000 steps is roughly equivalent to a mile.
