Today I am experimenting with the treadmill.
On days when I do not take a walk, I get between 4,000 and 5,000 steps. I have been counting those regular steps as part of my daily total. A walk around the "medium square" takes about 40 minutes and adds about 4,000 steps. That's how I met my step goal last month.
On the treadmill, I walk a mile in about 20 minutes. That makes perfect sense since I have it set on 3 mph. A mile worked out to be about 2,400 steps. Soooooooooo, if I walk 3 miles on the treadmill I will make/exceed my step goal.
I wouldn't really matter how I racked up three miles. I could do an hour all at once, I could do 3 20 minute segments, or even 6 10 mintes segments.
So far today, I have done 2 10 minute segments.
I'll keep you posted!
