I agree with the other two posts. Invest in a pedometor, and those extra steps to and from class can be added to counting your steps. I generally put log those steps as part of my 10,000 steps a day goal, or if at the end of the day I can approximate how much time during the day I walked, I may add it to the cardio for the day as a "snow blower" walking.

I count walking to and from school as hiking. It is very hilly and I carry about a twenty pound backpack so I definitely feel it when I get there. I don't count just walking between classes though. I guess it depends on how far and fast you go. You could get a pedometer and count your steps too.

well, time how long it takes you, or count your steps--or both. give it a try for a couple of days. if you're actually cramping or feeling heart rate increase or sweat (good indications of your body working itself beyond just normal motion), then i'd count it. if its 5 minutes a pop, probably not, unless you're doing it 10 times a day.

But if its tricky and you're walking at long stretches and feel those indicators, i'd put it down as walking.

Would you count that as exercise? Like that I can log? My campus is on a hill and I have about a bazillion lb backpack plus a gym/lunch bag to carry while I trudge from class to class. I think it is a workout.
