I'm having difficulty with this and I always have to guess, or at least estimate time, but then I can never tell how fast the pace is which I'm going. I don't have access to any sweet gadgets to help me, so anyone know any tricks? I try to carry a watch with me to at least log time, but I'm never sure of distance in order to know which pace to put.
Any tips would be much appreciated. I just don't want to over or under log.
Ok. You need a watch with a second hand. For sixty seconds you are going to count your steps. Pace along quickly. 110 steps per minute is 2.5 miles per hour. Get the rhythm going and keep the pace, which is not overly fast. If you can find a pedometer, getting 10,000 steps a day would insure that you're walking enough for sure.
