I only count my activity when I am specifically undertaking a physical activity, but I count my biking miles now that I'm on the journey home since the Fellowship road most of the way.

I have had myriad pedometers and have yet to find an accurate one. Sorry to put a downer on pedometers, but you tell me where to buy an accurate one and I'll have the $$ ready. I mean... I have had over two dozen in past years. Bwah!

To each their own I guess. The powers-that-be on Sparks recommend pedometers and I am certainly no 'Coach_Jen' (thank heavens), so go for whatever you think best!

Happy trails! emoticon

I wear my pedometer all day long and count all my mileage/steps. Except for when I take an exercise class - I don't count that as mileage.

It's been a long road get'n from there to here.
It's been a long time, but my time is finally near.
I will see my dreams come alive at last.

I used to count my steps through the day but as I have become less active with injury and age. I now just count the walks I take for exercise or the trips for shopping where I am doing a lot of walking while shopping

Just remember you are only competing with yourself to make sure you are active, what others do is not important to you other than motivating you to stay active.

Do or do not, there is no try...

You can prolly use this as a guide:

Just over 2,000 steps to walk one mile, and 10,000 steps is close to 5 miles
20 minutes of vacuuming type,light exercise = 1 mile
20 minutes of zumba type, med exercise = 2 miles
25 minutes of circuit training type, exercise = 3 miles

But then, I usually 'peg up' 10,000 steps a day and treat it as 3 miles on my walk ... it's really a matter of what you guage yourself I guess.

Happy trails! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have a question that I hope someone can give me guidance on. Do you count all steps/miles walked in a day or just those where you say, OK now I'm going to do my walking? The reason I ask is that I do a lot of walking on some days though not necessarily related to hiking or treadmill. I just want to keep my mileage honest.
