I've started wearing my pedometer to work again, and Friday it said I logged just over 5 miles. It was an 8 hour day of being on my feet, but it seemed excessive, so I might need to re-set it. Although my walk this morning logged in at about 2 miles, and that did seem about right...
What kind of pedometer do you have? The mechanical types only measure the number of strides and can't adjust for stride length.

Walking outdoors on level ground makes it easier to maintain a consistent stride.
