    Striding towards 1100 at the end of the month, now on 1070. 12 more days at 3 per day will get me there. I'm doing some newsletter deliveries at the moment so that helps. Mind you walking up and down the driveways of big houses is not very exciting, good for peeking into people's gardens though.

    I am still slugging away. Technology has not been my friend recently - Garmin have not implemented Bluetooth very well and since I upgraded my iPhone the connection between them keeps dropping.

    Anyway I stand at 905 miles against a plan of 890 so I will get there. My daily steps averaged over the year are still just below 11,000 so I would like to bump that up again if I can.

    Its much more likely to be apple that's messed up the bluetooth. IPhones have never been the best for bluetooth connections. Is your iphone making the bluetooth connection sleep?

    Good going with your target.

    Garmin acknowledge that it is their problem. Was fine with iPhone till I upgraded to iOS 11

    1104 at the end of the month. Only another 100 left to do for this year. My Walking Group members are checking in today with their miles, some of them have done more than me.

    the issue between my Forerunner and my iPhone seem to have been resolved

    I have 64 miles left to do to reach my target and 27 days to do it. A couple of those are work travelling without dogs but I will work through that.

    Having a target to aim for has really helped, especially with all the injury time meaning I have not been able to run.
