I'm not sure how to convert it because the number of steps to miles would largely depend upon your stride. A wider stride would need fewer steps per mile than someone with a less wide stride. I'm sure there is a better way to say that but I know that my husband (over 6' tall) would take fewer steps than I would. I think the only way to get an accurate count would be a pedometer. You could estimate 2000 steps per mile. I think that is what I read somewhere...that 10,000 steps translates into approximatey 5 miles. My stride gets me a bit more than a mile on 2000 steps but it's a pretty close approximation. Hope this helps.

Sorry I tried to edit my question and only part of it went thru correctly.

the conversion for minutes walked to steps taken
I walked 90 minutes at a pace of 21 minutes per mile how do I calulate the steps taken???

Thank you for your reply..as you can tell I'm new to this
