The 30-Day Walkabout is designed for use with the Google Fit App, which counts steps. The number of steps required each day is 500 more than the last. Like the 30 Day Abs Challenge, however, every 4th day (Day 4, Day 8, Day 12, and so on) only requires 5,000 steps, which is the number the challenge begins with on Day 1.
