18 miles logged last week
Like you said, there’s really no formal rule. So I just used Google maps driving directions for my miles. Either way, it’s a great motivator to keep walking. Welcome to the group! Enjoy your journeyHi! I'm joining in for next year - Should I use the Google maps driving distance for mileage or the walking distance? It's a difference of about 50 miles. I'm sure there are no formal rules, and this post is more about me annoucing my intention publicly, but I am curious about other folks have picked.
I'm not sure for a fitbit. I only use my treadmill miles for this because I'm also kind of using it to justify the purchase.1.5 miles today. How do y'all guess-timate distance? I have a fitbit but it thinks knitting is running a marathon so I'm not sure I trust it.
I used my fitbit when I had one. Now I use my Apple Watch. I definitely noticed a change when I switched. I’m not sure which in more accurate though. But for this challenge, I think the bottom line is to have a fun goal to motivate us to keep moving. So I wouldn’t be too concerned about the accuracy and just have fun with it and try to let it motivate you to move more. I know some people only count their exercise walks. I count all my steps throughout the day (but I don’t knit nor do I run marathons...haha).How do y'all guess-timate distance?
