Power walking 2006-07-30 From Wendy:I have an exercise routine of 'power walking', approx. 5-6 days per week. I carry a pedometer with me during these walks so that I can keep track of the distance of each walk. I've created a weekly walking chart on my computer, so each time I get back from a walk, I enter my stats, such as kilometers and miles walked that day, as well as my start and finish time. At the end of each week, before I printed out my completed chart, I would calculate out what my average walking distance was, for that particular week. At the end of each month, I would calculate: [1] I'd add up my total kilometers and miles walked for that month. (a no brainer ~ I could do that one!) **But also, I would work out the percentages of the following: [A] What my average daily distance p/walk was, for that month [B] What my average time spent, per walk was, for that monthAnswered by Penny Nom.
