Working an office job, I try to hit at a minimum of 7,500 steps a day. And double that on weekends. If after training I'm still below, I'll walk the long way home. Seems to be working quite well.

I'd love to be able to hit more, but there just isn't enough time in the day to go for long walks and listen to podcasts.
