Here’s an easy way to figure out how far you’ve walked. If you want to know the distance or how many steps you’ve walked it’s pretty simple.
Multiply the time you walked by 100. This gives you the average meters you’ve walked.
On average you walk 100 meters per minute - when done at a moderate pace.
So if you’ve walked for 25 minutes x 100 and you get 2,500 meters or 2.5 kms.
Here’s a simple formula;
METERS = # MIN. WALKED X 100
KMS WALKED = # MINUTES X 0.1
Example:25 min. x 0.1 = 2.5 kms walked
Now you want to figure out the steps? How tall you are does matter a bit, but on average you do 1,400 steps per kilometer. Women will do a bit more - closer to 1,500 steps while men have longer strides and do closer to 1,300 steps.
If you walked for 25 minutes or 2.5 kms, times it by 1,400 and you’ve walked 3,500 steps
STEPS WALKED = # MINUTES WALKED X 0.1 X 1,400
So, if your goal is to do 10,000 steps a day plan to do around 72 minutes of walking (around 7.15 kms)
