that is why whenever I get the opportunity to walk up a great incline, I do so since it gives me more of a workout than staying on flat land constantly

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

Catonsville *is* hill training so it would seem reasonable if that is their faulty algorithm. However, like movement during sleep periods, the altitude changes during running activities ought to be partitioned out and not counted as "floors".

I shall submit a suggestion to their support page.

As USMAWIFE pointed out, it is a unit of measure of change in altitude. A cumulative climb of 700 ft (10*70) in elevation is certainly possible for a run.

Does that seem reasonable based on your running path?

Every once in awhile my FB shows large amount of flights of stairs. Hubby's does too on the same day. I think it's a bug.

since you were running, inclines over 10 feet in elevation count as a step of stairs. So the higher the incline, the more it shows up as stairs So basically if you did a lot of running uphill, it was right

At least that's what my Fit Bit page claimed. I went for a run and it clocked 70 flights of stairs. Is there a fix for this?
