Keeping Track of Your Activity

If you have a Smart phone then there are free apps that you can download (for iPhone and Android) that will track and record the distances you run, cycle or walk as well as your pace such as:

  • Strava Running and Cycling GPS Tracker - Free
  • MapMyRun, MapMyRide and MapMyWalk GPS apps from MapMyFitness – Free
  • Sports Tracker from Sports Tracking Technologies Ltd – Free

If you don't have a phone or other gizmos to help you we have this handy Step Conversion Chart. This is based on a walking pace of 4mph, which for most people is a brisk pace and one where you can still talk and walk.
