Info for self: stride length and distance walked
Monday, February 11, 2013
Just some info for myself about walking/daily steps. It says online that one mile is about 2,000 steps, but because my stride length is so short, it takes me more than that. I did these quick measurements and calculations while calibrating my pedometer and figured I may as well keep them here so I don't forget or in case I need it some day to measure distance or something.
1 mile = 63360 inches
my stride length = 23 inches
63360/23 = 2754 steps in one mile
