Jules,

can't some pedometres tell you how far you've walked?

I'm sure their are some little gadgets that you can get that do if they don't.

Might be worth a chat with your local sports store about options.

Believe it or not, there is a primary school in NW Tas that is doing precisely that!!! they walk around the oval every day for a few circuits during class, record the distance and walk all over the world, learning about the places they 'go through'. They've been to Queensland, and to Antarctica apparently!

I have a pedometer. I'll start wearing it again, tomorrow. 10, 000 steps a day are recommended as part of healthy weight loss regime. I am in a very active job and thought that I would achieve this and more without effort but after wearing it to work recently, found that I still needed about another 3 or so thousand steps to 'get there'.

I think I should also go for a swim on Thursday at the local pool. Had been going twice weekly with a gf for a while and it's a good cardio-workout as well as supportive on joints etc. We were interupted with various illnesses and appointments then just got slack.

Not sure which school it is, but I think it's around the Penguin/Wynyard ish area. And I think it's a fantastic idea too.

Yeah that's hard to work out. I had a pedometer that worked out kms as well as steps but I was never truly convinced it was accurate as it depends on your set up and then if your stride varies during the walk thats another factor. It would be good if you could walk to something that you know the distance of, say something that is 1-2 kms away and see how long it takes you.
