Thank you, Janet and Dave! I'll just count on 2000. Give or take a hundred, it won't make that much of a difference!

SOPHIALARA~ Dave is right in the ballpark. Anywhere from 1800 to 2200 steps per mile, so I always tell people 2000 is a good basic guideline and easy to calculate. You can always do a premeasured distance using your pedometer, then calculate up your stride rate. A track works well for this.

I had the same question so I looked it up and it is aproximatly 2100 steps but of course it depends on your stride. I measured mine with my car and compared with my pedometer

Hi Everyone,

I'm Lara. I'm really looking forward to incorporating walking into my schedule and thought that this would be the perfect way to do it! I already do Pilates on a regular basis, but need to add some cardio exercise. I used to do high impact aerobic dancing, but at 58, can no longer take the damage that incurs upon my joints, especially my knees.

I have a question about how to calculate miles. I have a very good pedometer, but am not sure how many step equal (roughly) a mile. Does anyone have any knowledge about this? If so, it would be greatly appreciated!

I'm looking forward to walking the 5K!

Lara
