I'm walking 20,000 steps every day this March for Cancer Research UK.

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This March I’m walking 20,000 steps a day throughout the month to help beat cancer. Help me Walk All Over Cancer and fund life-saving research by making a donation to my page.

My training has been going well so I'm upping my targets:

- 620,000 tracked Nordic walking steps throughout March*
- One marathon** distance walk (I'm actually hoping to achieve two)

* I use Google Fit for all my tracking, distance and step calculations
** 26 miles 385 yards [26.22 miles]

This is the second year I'm completing this challenge. Last year my longest walks were:
20.5 miles, 41,000 steps, 5 hrs 20 mins
19.5 miles, 41,500 steps, 5 hrs 37 mins
41,723: most number of steps in one day

Other stats from last year:
3 days 7 hours and 14 mins tracked Nordic walks in total
574,200 tracked Nordic walking steps, 268.7 tracked miles
630,600 total steps (tracked steps plus all other steps)

Spinal fracture finishes challenge. I'm sad to have to report that an unstable fracture to my L1 (Lumbar) vertebrae has finished my challenge for this year. I've had surgery to help with that but my hospitalisation has led to me also contracting COVID-19. Please, please, still donate to this worthy cause. My accident happened very close to the top of Lingmoor Fell in the Lake District (completing a challenging walk on my own) and it only took me another 3 hours to walk off the mountain with minimal help after the accident. Since then the pain I've been through has been staggering so if on the basis of pain alone, please give generously (if you can in these worrying times). Rob
