When I joined the forum I thought it was aimed at like minded people that enjoy walking & backpacking the open countryside & trails. 

You need to consider that some people may not have access to open countryside or "trails" all the time and do their mileage on pavements in cities for pleasure. Are you suggesting this can't be added on here? I also add miles when I walk from work into town when I could have waited for a bus, or walk a mile from Tesco when I could have got the bus. I am happy to add this to my total even if you are not. I am aiming to walk 20 miles per week and 1 mile of my total this week was walking from Tesco to home.

Are only including walks, or general day to day walking like back and for work?


I am including all my walks; walking to work, the shops, and leisure walks. 


No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)

That is entirely up to you, dank86. If I had to walk a couple of miles to work and back every day, then I would include it - it's all the same to your heart and legs!

My walking is mostly local dog walking, with occasional longer walks into the hills or along the clifftops when the opportunity arises. The regular dog walks vary in length from a mile and a half up to 4 miles, sometimes considerably longer, and I usually walk the dog twice a day, so the miles certainly add up (8 miles total today). I also include any runs that I do.

Ralph - did you deliberately delete your name from the list?

If not, would you like me to re-insert it?

And please don't worry about what qualifies as a mile walked - it is just a bit of fun which may help with motivation and it is entirely up to you  :)

Mountain......molehill  ::)

At the end of the day, does it matter? Someone might do a half mile walk in the dark after work and someone might walk the same distance to the shop or to work, it’s still a walk.

As has been said, it’s not a competition so log what you consider to be a walk, whatever the distance.  O0



I agree entirely, bricam.

Thought I'd have a go at this, this year. It's been some time since I could look at a year ahead without anything getting in the way.
I'll be counting dog walking and hiking only as my fitbit tells me I've done 30 miles already this week  ;D  If I can do 10 miles a week all year I'll be happy with that, good luck everyone  O0

Good luck jontea.

Yes, fitbits can be terrible liars, can't they. My Polar A300 activity tracker clocks up the miles when I am on a rough sea crossing!

Great that you feel you can look forward to the year after the last few you've had. O0
No great that you are ahead of me already  :(
