2022 Walking Stats

Here is my exercise data for 2022 as recorded by Apple Watch. 

Total steps: 2,774,537

Total distance in Km: 2,485

Total distance in miles: 1,544

Charts and tables with the data are below. I only really started forcing myself to exercise more in April. So with the extra time in 2023, I might be able to hit 3,000 Km.

BTW the data for compiling these stats was exported from Apple Health in CSV format using HealthExport. A fantastic app.

 

Chart showing the number of steps I took each month during 2022. With a point for each month joined by straight lines. And a blue trend line slopping up from about 150,000 steps per month in January to 300,000 per month in December. The chart peaks in the summer months, from May to August.
