Use a stopwatch on routes you walk a lot

i use a stopwatch on walking routes I use a lot. It's very motivating for me to beat a previous "best" time. It also lets me know that I am walking at a good pace, and not just phoning it in. It is also good for runners or joggers. You can find...  Read more

I live and work on Route 66, and sometimes walk it too. I walked 2 miles this morning, and 4 more tonight. I feel like I've gained a little, but I'm staying off the scale until next week. Hopefully by then, I'll be back to where I was or less....  Read more

I Need a Better Walking Route
