Walking burns calories because it is weight-bearing. You have to lift your body weight (even if only a fraction of an inch) with every step.

But I agree with Unident - with a wagon (unlike say, carrying a 76 pound backpack), the weight goes down the wheels, rather than your legs, and on level ground the extra calorie burn is minimal.

Just log it as 2 miles regular walking.

The wagon won't add much, if anything. Most of the childrens' weight was going down through the wheels, not actually being carried by you.

Spark mothers have reported finding that pushing the baby in the stroller adds nothing to their running.

200+ calories, a body walking 3mph on level ground will burn between 95 and 110 calories, since u was pulling the wagon add maybe 25 to 50 cal emoticon

I would use the walking a mile in 25 minutes for 2 miles

So today for my workout I did the following and was wondering how much I burned if anyone can help me?
