Hey Everyone:

55 minutes walking at work (on breaks and lunch)
10 minutes on treadmill (gym after work)
20 minutes on elliptical (gym after work)

Walking at work its too hard to track miles. I usually use a pedometer but sometimes it doesnt calculate all my steps so it gets annoying. haha

Goodluck!

You never know unless you try...

When I am outside I go by distance, 2 miles is as far as my little ones can get, and it takes a while. When I am walking indoors, I go by time and try for 45-60 minutes.

I track by miles. I wear a pedometer everyday and it is like wearing a watch..... I feel lost without it. I am still trying to get a regular 10K steps per day.... I am usually about 5k or 6k.
but - just wanted to weigh in here..... that I track miles.

I MYSELF DO NOT WORRY ABOUT DISTANCE --- I AM MORE INTO TIME, AND WHAT KIND OF TERRAIN I AM WALKING. IF I AM WALKING UP HILLS AND IT IS SLOW GOING BECAUSE IT IS A HARDER WORK OUT ---I HAVE LEARNED THAT I HAVE TO BE PATIENT AND KIND TO MYSELF ---THEN I CAN SLOWLY DO MORE DISTANCE AND INCREASE THE TIME I AM WALKING. I HAVE USED PEDOMETERS BUT FIND THIS IS THE BEST MEASUREMENT FOR ME. HOWEVER, I MOSTLY I JUST WALK AND ENJOY MY TIME OUTSIDE. IF THE WEATHER IS BAD, I USE A REBOUNDER AND RUN OR WALK IN PLACE...HARD WORKOUT.

I AM BLESSED TO HAVE A GREAT WALKING BUDDY --EMILY MY GOLDEN RETREIVER WHO LOVES WALKING AND NEVER COMPLAINS...BECAUSE SHE ENJOYS EVERY MINUTE OF IT. WE ARE CONDITIONING OURSELVES TO EVENTUALLY START ALTERNATING WALKING AND RUNNING...HOWEVER, I THINK WALKING IS MUCH EASIER ON YOUR JOINTS AND OVERALL BODY ***I HURT MY LEG A FEW YEARS BACK POUNDING THE PAVEMENT SO I KNOW FIRST HAND. HOWEVER, RUNNING AT A BALL FIELD HELPED A LOT.

ANYWAY --- BYE FOR NOW

I wear a pedometer and count steps. I fell on my knee last Sunday, so my steps dropped from 18,000- 20000 a day to 3000. I'm just trying to do a little more each day till my knee gets better. I'm up to 5000. I'm at the point now where my knee feels better and I have to watch I don't over do it.

I like to know distance. It feels good to say you walked so many miles. Plus I am going to participate in the Avon walk for breast cancer in April---39 miles in a weekend so I have to start my training in about 2 weeks. I guess now I am just training for my training LOL

I find it easier to track time, being from Australia, we don't work in miles, and I find it difficult to convert. But I walk for at least 60 minutes most days and guestimate the miles.

I'm doing the Team Prevention training program to walk a marathon, and it has me go by minutes. For example, yesterday I walked 3 minutes at an easy pace to warm up, then 25 at a brisk pace (as though I were running late for an appointment), and then 2 minutes slower to cool down. It was a nice walk.

I take 2 walks a day; each are 30 minutes long.

Sometimes, you have to turn on the radio, let the music take over and just DANCE!!!!

Do whatever you have to do to make yourself happy. Even if all it takes is making someone you love happy.

Follow your heart; unless it tells you to jump off a bridge. Then use you HEAD!!!

I usually count miles, But I try to complete 2 miles with in 30-32 minutes. Usually my work out time is a little limited. Also if I walk outside, then I keep track of where I walked and go to google maps and map it out so I get accurate mile count and usually keep track of the time too. I don't have a pedometer.

Today I will do it for me. If I fall down I will get back up each and every time!!

I am worth the fight!

Good input here. As a walker who has shifted mostly to treadmill work - as you get more endurance try to vary the incline of your walks - I walked a flat route for most of my first 4 months - the last 4 on the treadmill I do a lot of incline work which allows me to cut down the time it takes to get the desired calorie burn.
Lots of ways to get there and you don't need to overdo it - in fact don't overdo it. Start slowly and work your way up - challenge yourself to do a little better every workout. Increase your frequency as you get into better shape.

Hello. I'd say walk by minutes and try to keep a good pace - not too fast because you can get leg cramps, but walk like you mean it. As you get better at it, then try to walk faster and longer...
The most important thing here is to keep moving - walk for 30 mins, dance for 15 mins, move, move, move...

I walk a number of steps most days. I have a goal in mind and I know what the miles are, but it is easier to count steps. I usually walk 30 min to 1.5 hours in the evening to reach the goal. It has worked for me. I have tried miles (which usually also equals minutes) so it was the same. I'm just happier with the steps because some days I'm busier at work and get more steps and have less time in the evening. It all works out.

I always try to walk between 45 minutes and an hour a day. Some days I feel like walking at a faster pace or even running so I obviously go more miles. I usually get in around 2-3 miles. I hear of people that wake 5-10 miles a day and really admire them. Maybe I will get there one day.

Wow, thats awesome that your ped. Came with a DVD and programs for your MP3. One of the girls i chat with gave me a website that you can download for free a program to teach you how to run. Its called couch potato to 5km in 9 weeks. She and a few others have been very successful with it. I love it myself but I'm staying on the weeks longer becuase I found I couldn't always run the entire way. I move on to a new week every time I find the tape getting easy.

The CD (& DVD) I have came with a pedometer from PT Fitness... though I did end up buying another pedometer somewhere else that I now use with the CD instead of the original one. I'm loving it. Actually the 2nd pedometer that I purchased was a $5.00 one and it's more accurate than the more expensive one... though the 1st one, I realized later, didn't have good instructions for wearing it properly like the 2nd one did. I had no idea I wasn't wearing the thing properly so that's probably why it wasn't reading correctly. It was my first one and it wasn't until the 2nd one that I realized I had it all wrong... but the workout is great. I'm loosing weight with it so far so that's all I care about right now.

Here's the website for the company.

What CD comes with a pedometer??? I know I had a cheapie version with one, but I got a better one, that is more accurate. Still am eyeballing the Omron. Had one in the past, but have NO idea what I did with it.

I have also bought a book "The Step Diet: Count Steps, Not Calories to Lose Weight and Keep It
off Forever". I read about this one somewhere! This book is used with ones pedometer, and helps you get to moving more. Found it on Amazon.

My pedometer came with a CD & a DVD with walking workout programs. The CD workout I've put on m MP3 player and listen to it while I walk. It's an incredible workout. It's broken into 6 sections of 10 minutes each, so you can go as long as you're able. Each section gets faster & the idea is you walk to the beat of the music. But it also explains the proper way to hold yourself, how to make your steps, and how to swing your arms (which apparently is a very important part). The DVD has a 20 minute indoor walking workout program for days when the weather isn't good enough to go outside. By the time I'm done with 60 minutes of the regular program I've usually walked 6.5 km (exactly what the CD says I should expect). Then when I get home I do the stretching that the DVD recommends & shows how to do.

I think that if you walk for a smaller amount of time, you should be walking faster to keep the calories burning. If you walk longer amounts of time, be consistant but it doesn't have to be really fast. In one way you will build endurance in the other way you will you will work distance. (not the word I'm looking for but it works). Either way is cardio and I think you should do combinations of both to "trick" the body into burnig calories. If you do the same thing every day your body gets used to it. Trying to walk a different route can help change things around (hills vs straith walk away vs dirt paths) Keep up what you are doing but don't forget to keep varriying your routine!


Also, always do a 5-10 min warm up of walking and a cool down. Remember to stretch.

Do you try to walk a certain number of miles a day or just a certain amount of time?
I have a pedometer but it's a cheap one and I don't that it is very accurate. So I am just trying to walk for 30 minutes a day.
