I tend to walk daily, and have started running for 5-10 minutes in the middle, just because I feel healthier, and can. I have 26 " legs, so 3.0 m.p.h. is a brisk walk for me, and 3.5 is about as fast as I can walk. What I do, is divide the miles by the time, and treat it like I just walked @ 3.75 m.p.h for example.
As long as it is close, I don't think it matters much. I do exercise to wake me up in the morning, and improve health, not to burn X amount of calories. If I gain weight, I will cut calories, and keep exercise the same. I think people tend to turn the whole diet/exercise thing into a math problem, and should just do their exercise for fun, and eat a healthy diet, and adjust diet based on what is happening on the scale. If you are losing at a decent pace, or maintaining a healthy weight, then all is good.
