Honestly, if you walk for 1/2 hour you can easily add 2500 steps, it takes little effort. I have learned that one.

I thought that getting my steps in would take lots of time but it really doesn't.

Good for you that you are swimming as well.

If you have a smart phone get the nexersize app, It tracks all your activities for you.....

This site converts swimming (you have to find the activity that matches) to steps. Hope this helps:

Do wear a pedometer. I know FItbit will convert the swimming, but is minutes and exertion not strokes that make the numbers.

There is a way to convert your swimming to steps but I can't remember how to do it. Every kick you make while swimming counts as a step. Maybe someone here know how to do it. Sorry.

I've been stuck in the 6000 range for the past few weeks. Part of the issue is that I've added swimming to my routine, which clearly doesn't get any extra steps. Anyone have any tips to get my steps back up to 10000?
