Today I began keeping track of my fitness activities on our “Walk Around the World” tracker, posting 2.1 miles for Day 1. Here’s how it worked:
My fitness activities today included 30 minutes of upper body weight training and a one-mile walk at a moderate pace. According to the fitness activity chart, each minute of weight training (moderate) = 87 steps, so 30 minutes times 87 steps = 2610 steps total. Using the Steps to Miles Calculator, I entered my average stride length of 2.3 feet and the 2610 steps, and then I clicked “Submit.” My 30-minute workout turned out to be equal to 1.1 miles. That, plus my one-mile walk, gave me 2.1 miles for the day, which I just entered on the tracker.
