Thanks for everyone's reply. I didn't add mileage from elliptical/bike but was wondering since I might do elliptical/bike more than treadmill now.

When tracking my milage, I usually count the elliptical. From my HRM, I try to keep my heart rate comparable to my running heart rate. For me, I estimate 20 minutes is 1 mile.

For biking, I NEVER count the mileage... just cause I could maybe 20 miles in an hour where I could never come close walking.

For me, I find it better to track my minutes, not my distance.

Going a mile on the elliptical isn't quite the same as walking or jogging a mile. I wouldn't count the elliptical "miles" toward your total miles goal.

Personally, I only track the mileage that I ran, but it's entirely up to you. I don't think biking as walking/running, nor do I consider elliptical that either, but I know some people do think of elliptical that way.

On the fitness tracker page, I have a walk/run mileage tracker. I work out on the treadmill most of the time but with an injury I am on elliptical and stationary bike now. Does the mileage from bike/elliptical count as walk/run? Sorry if this is a silly question.
