So my company is having its annual fitness challenge. They give pedometers out to everyone and the challenge is for each team to reach 30,976 "virtual" miles on average (which works out to about 235 actual miles). At the end of each day you're supposed to enter in how many steps you've taken and it updates your distance. The 30,976 miles is supposed to represent a trip around the world, visiting each of our company offices along the way.
For people who don't want to walk, they offer various "step equivalents". So for example cycling is 2,499 steps per 10 minutes. Today, I biked 150 minutes, which they consider to be 37,485 steps, or 29 miles.
So you can probably see how this may be an issue already. Just one day of effort and I've already done "29" out of "235" miles, or more than 10%. The contest runs for 2 months, and my team is already first place with 3.5x more distance than the 2nd place team. I figure if I keep my current rate of cycling up, we're going to sail past the finish line less than 25% into the contest.
I'm worried that other teams are going to cry foul. Should I worry about it? I'm just following the rules that the company set forth, and it's not my fault that I average 10-15 hours of exercise a week. But at the same time the rules seem to give quite an advantage to cyclists...
