Will a pedometer show how far I run?

What Pedometers Are Good For

You can use pedometer for either walking or running, but remember you take fewer steps running a similar distance. This is because of a longer stride. It may be best to use the step counter for walking and the distance function for running. The counter will register on some machines like stair steppers or upright bikes, but these have their own displays. Steps taken don't reflect the amount of work in weight lifting or gardening, so give yourself credit for those types of exercise even if you don't meet your step goal that day.
