Look at your pedometer at the end of the day. Write down your total number of steps.

#### Tip

You can also convert miles to kilometers. Approximately 2,000 steps equals one mile. One mile equals 1.60934 km. At the end of the day determine how many miles you have walked by dividing your total steps by the number 2,000. Then, multiply that number by 1.60934. The result equals the number of kilometers you walked.

#### Warning

Dividing your steps by 1,320 gives you a good estimate of distance if your stride length is average -- about 76 cm. If your stride is much longer or shorter than average, try measuring the distance you travel in 10 steps in centimeters, then divide that number by 10. Multiply your total number of steps for the day by the result, then divide by 100,000 to estimate the number of kilometers you walked.
