How far do you walk a day ?

What's that in English money an archaic unit of measurement rather than that furrin Kunt Meters. standard units
1.6km to the mile so 8km = 5 miles, 20km = 12.5 miles.

8km is also roughly 40 furlongs or 400 chains if that helps.

Kirkz cheats by wearing seven league boots so I wouldn't worry about it.

Chains and furlongs, rods,poles all good, just don't do furrin.
 
I would estimate about a mile a day, with plenty of lifting and shifting involved at work. That’s some miles away, so can’t walk to or from.
My idea of heaven is taking a walk a day, to stretch my legs and think.
 
Not enough is the answer. In normal years there has been the march at Nijmegen and a climbing / walking holiday, so February onwards would be 25 - 110km per weekend. Last year it was only 20% of that with no 'big' events. Luckily there was a bridge built over a river that lies between home and work, so I am cycling 2 x 40 minutes on workdays (storms and snow excepted).
 
I can easily cover over 10 miles or so a day, I take my 2 dogs for long long walks every day, at least twice during the week and 3 or 4 at weekends, it keeps them and myself fit

I take my working cocker spaniel out twice a day covering a minimum of 3 miles each time, and an 8+ miler on weekends.

I was interested in how far the dog covers, as he's off the lead for all of it, so I bought a 'Pit Pat' tracker to measure it.

Load of old shite, recording less distance than me, even though he doesn't stop running the whole time, and the replacement was just as bad, so I used Harry Black to secure an old Foretrex onto his collar on one occasion to get an idea of his mileage - well over twice mine.

And he's still dropping a tennis ball at my feet.
 
Feck all (nearly). For some reason my anxiety and depression kicked up a notch last year and I just can't be arsed to do any phys. My therapist is working on it but I still haven't felt the urge to exercise.

I bought a new bicycle about 3 months ago and the only time I've ridden it was the 20ft to the bike shed. I'm clinically obese but have no urge to sort my shit out!!!
Change your therapist, get off the meds and exercise, been there and done it, put me on sertraline, then citalopram , couldn't be arsed to get out of bed most days and when I did it was to go to the loo or crack a tin and watch porn (all fine activities) but seriously walking or cycling helps. The shaky bit with the anxiety is just built up adrenaline and needs burning off, the fresh air and Vitamin D does wonders. If you want to PM no problem, but it does work.
I'm not a doc or anything but I know what has worked for me and a few other mates who are in the same boat.
 
No idea but it's got to be a good few miles, especially if I'm mowing lawns or pushing a barrow that day. I do need to get back into my running though, the odd couple of 20 minute jogs each week isn't much.

Oh, and people are mentioning Garmins and Fitbits to help them, anyone wants to say what they prefer I'm all ears.

2-3 miles a day with the hounds then probably another mile just milling about between shed/garden/house.
Not enough as the weight has crept up over lockdown!
 
I did 13 miles on Thursday, my usual is about 10 though.

Of course I have a job where I'm on foot all day. Oh look it's pissing it down today. Wonderful.

For value for money this is hard to beat, just bluetooth it to your phone etc. Will do notifications, exercise, heartrate, blood oxygen, sleep etc, battery lasts about a week.

I'd avoid Fitbits. I used to do security in a warehouse. We'd get returns to shops delivered to us. We'd usually get a cage half full of Fitbits each week. Also the two I got for my wife were shit and broke instantly.

Personally I got a galaxy watch active. But I got an older model than the current one, so it cost me less. Only issue was the strap was terrible. It took Timpsons about 30 seconds to switch it.
 
My smartwatch tells me that I average around 15000 steps a day mon-fri and 7000 at weekends, this works out at 42 miles a week. This breaks down to 7ish whilst working and 3ish when not.
