Should I measure walking distance or steps?

Steps or Distance?

Pedometers can be set to give you the number of steps you take or the distance you travel, or sometimes both. The problem with measuring distance is that you have to measure your stride lelngth, which can be a little tricky. A way around this is to wear your pedometer to a quarter-mile track and walk around the track on the inside lane. Check your steps, multiply by 4, and you will have the number of steps that equals a mile for you.
