5 June 12 Seriously? You want me to walk how many steps per day?

Did you know that the current recommendation for fitness, heart health, and weight control is to walk a whopping 10,000 steps most days of the week? If you think that is no big deal, then think again. Unless you have tracked steps using a pedometer, you probably have no idea how many steps you take in a day. On average, 2000 steps is about a mile so walking 10,000 steps means walking about 5 miles.

10,000 Steps

How long will it take you to walk 10,000 steps? Most of us walk briskly at about 3.5 miles per hour which takes about 17 minutes per mile or about 85 minutes for 5 miles. The faster your pace (MPH), the faster you can walk the 5 miles. If you walk at a pace of 4 MPH, then you will take 15 minutes to walk one mile or 11/4 hours to walk 5 miles. If you walk 5 MPH (which is a jog for most folks), then it will take 12 minutes to walk one mile or 1 hour to walk 5 miles.
