When I do my virtual walking, I try to get as much information on the area where I am walking. The computer is really helpful this way. I can find the weather conditions, sunrise-sunset times, etc, and that way I can really put myself at that place (in my mind). I have used both my walking and cycling mileage for the virtual walk. Pictures from the internet can give me an idea of the area, as well as the satellite pictures on the google maps.

I wear my pedometer 24/7 i use that count for my wlking.I have a exercise bike but I don't use that for my walking
We don't have any team rules on this team. I am even logging my biking miles (although not counting them toward walking).
A step counter is a great idea. It makes you aware of how active you are being in your daily life.

Don't give up what you want most for what you want for the moment.
If hunger is not the problem, food is not the answer.
I wear a pedometer 24/7 and log ALL miles. Supposedly a good Active lifestyle that is conducive to loosing weight is 10,000 steps a day. That equates to about 5 miles a day.

Connie - I think you should do whatever works for you.
For me, I only log intentional cardio related steps. But I count the elliptical trainer miles. This works for me so that's what I do.
Enjoy your journey. Remember to do what works for you!

I didn't find any "rules" about how to log miles on our vitual journey...one day, after walking around the mall looking for the "perfect" gift - it occurred to me that I walk a long way and "never get anywhere", meaning - if it wasn't a fitness walk, I didn't count it. So - I bought a step counter and am taking credit for all the distance I walk mowing the grass, finding my car in the parking lot, shopping, back and forth the to basement, airports, etc....day to day living.
So - I am adding "life-happens" walking to my intentional walks. What do you think???
