Are you ready for this 5 day 12000 steps a day challenge?
If you’ve been around the blog for any length of time you’llknowI can get quite obsessed with my step count and in the past, the challenges have involved doing 10,000 daily steps.
I even got my dog involved during the summer to raise money for the RSPCA – Helping animals who are not so lucky as my dog. You can check out our story here – Have dog will walk.
In fact, if you have a dog and you decide to do this 5-day walking challenge, I’d really love to see some pics. Share them below or on the Facebook group.
The Challenge – 12000 Steps A Day
You’ve got this and it’s only for 5 days. Start whenever you want. Today would be good.
- Build up 12000 daily steps any way you want – Well within reason. No sitting watching tv and shaking the pedometer, that doesn’t count and you won’t feel the benefits.
- Do this for 5 days consecutively
- You can print out the tracker if you want to to keep you motivated.
Why 12000 steps?
Well, why not? If you’ve been doing 10,000 daily steps for a while now, then stepping it up to 12,000 daily will definitely give you a boost and well, who doesn’t love a challenge?

Why only 5 days?
Honestly, it’s partly a mindset thing and partly me thinking “Blimey, I can’t keep this up for too long”
5 days is a realistic amount of time to commit to this challenge and there’s absolutely no reason why you can’t extend it. Realistically I know that I struggle to do 10,000 steps some days when I’m super busy, but I can probably push myself to do this for 5 days no matter what.
And that mindset thing – 5 days is a short enough time span to be doable in your mind for most people. 30 days seems a bit more daunting, right?
Check out the tracker and motivation download
To help you with this challenge, I’ve put together a really great tracker and motivation download for you. Print it out to complete daily and help you to stay really motivated.
I’ve included loads of tips to help you build up your daily steps, affirmations and quotes to inspire you and extra reading that will tell you all about the health benefits of walking (or getting your steps in).
I really hope you enjoy this 12,000 steps a day challenge, I’d love you to share this post with your friends. Thanks.
