As I was packing things for our trip, I came across the pedometer I bought a few years ago.
When I got it I tried to calibrate the "miles" with miles as recorded on my treadmill, and it was a dismal mismatch.
It really doesn't mater. All things are relative. So yesterday I clipped it to my waistband to see if I could log the 10,000 steps recommended for "heart health."
No problem. Yesterday I started the day by walking on the treadmill for 50 minutes. The rest of the day was spent going up and down the hill loading things into the Alfa for our trip. By the end of the day I was over 10,000 steps.
Today is a different story. It is now 4:30 in the afternoon. I have been on my feet all day, working around the house and going up and down the stairs and the hill carting an infinite amount of stuff to the Alfa. My feet are tired! But I have only logged 5370 steps. (2.28 miles.)
Even though I have a few more things to do tonight, there is no way I can log another 4630 steps! I guess that shows me how important that hour on the treadmill is every morning!
When we are on the trip, we will walk a lot. I'm going to wear the pedometer just to see what it measures.
Have any of you ever used one?
