"The average number of steps is 2,640. This is based on individuals that have a constant two foot stride. If you stride is longer, the # of steps will decrease a little. If your stride is shorter, the number of steps will increase a little. But, 2,640 is a good average baseline and will get you pretty darn close. Cheers!

Also: If you measure out a distance of ten yards on the ground, walk it and have someone count the number of steps it takes you. Now, multiply your number of steps by 176. That'll tell you how many steps it will take you to complete a mile. (there are 176 10 yard increments in a mile)"

1020 x 4 = 4080 steps an hour or divided by 2,640 = 1.55 mph...gears are a little rusty but I *think* I did that right...?

I walked 340 steps in 5 minutes. I did that three times. This means I met my minimum activity requirement (in my *weakened state* hahaha).

Does anyone have an idea how to translate 1020 steps in 15 minutes into how many minutes it takes me to walk a mile.
