Walking

Postby Carly » Sat Sep 29, 2007 7:18 am

Hi All,

I was just wondering whether anyone could tell me how many calories I would burn if I walked 5km at a medium pace (fast enough to raise heart rate, but not so fast I can not hold a conversation between gasps for air? :P)

Any info would be appreciated...

Thanks,
Carly

Ok... From my calculations (based on our weight too, as it is similar) I burn about 60 calories for every 10 minutes of walking I do on about 6.4km/hr.

If you are walking 5km, my guess is that it will take you approximately 50 minutes (including hills etc)... Calorieking.com.au says that you should burn 303 calories! I was close... I said 300!!! Hehe.

Does that even make sense, Carly?!

BTW, were you the one who sent me that VERY kind e-mail? If so, :D .

Yes that email came from me! Sorry I have not replied, have barely had time to turn the pc on the past week and half or so...

Thank you for the info re the calories. It took me 45 mins to do the walk so roughly 300, a touch less maybe... still good news!!

Thanks again!

Hey Carly! :D

I use the following calculator to determine how many calories I burn.

In the time section down the bottom you need to type 60 minutes.

Also, if you need to convert kilos to pounds .... there is 2.2 pounds for every one kilo.

I hope that helps!

Keep up the great work and I know I will be reading your success story in the near future. :D
