Of course someone’s always pushing the envelope. Otherwise it’s just stationery.

HELLO, PEOPLE!

So I had this fantastic idea the other night to figure out, in total, how many miles/steps/whatevers I’ve put on my iPod since I bought it way back in February 2012.|
This idea was promptly destroyed, however, when I discovered that my 2012 walking data is nowhere to be found. I have 2010’s (for the three months I walked during that year, haha), I have 2011’s, and I have 2013-2015. But no 2012.*

How about I figure out, in total, how many miles/steps/whatevers I’ve put on my iPod since January 1, 2013?

HERE WE GO WITH SOME SUMMARY STATS

Total distance: 3,769.68 miles (average per walk: 4.358 miles)
Total steps: 7,932,075 (average per walk: 9,170)
Total calories burned: 211,136 (average per walk: 290.33)

I also wanted to try to see if my average number of miles walked is significantly different year by year. So I did an ANOVA! The ANOVA turned out to be highly significant (F(2,862) = 126.26, p < 0.001), which suggests that at least two years have significantly different mileage averages. Some Tukey Pairwise comparisons showed that all three years had significantly different average mileage from one another. Here are the means:

2013: 2.803 miles per walk
2014: 5.647 miles per walk
2015: 6.664 miles per walk.

Have some graphs!

*That missing year of data is really stressing me out, you have no idea.
