Can anyone walk at speed five? I can't! I find myself having to do a jog at 4.3 only! If you can walk at speed seven, wow! More power to ya!

@Healthy4Him I love your idea of walking to differing beats of music. I use my ipod as a pedometer and walk with music, but have never thought of varying the tempo. Thanks so much...this will definitely make a positive difference.
There are way TOO many steps/variations to remember. And there is obviously a typo or some mistake in the Intermediate list. The Cool Down 5 minutes - the exertion rate is at 6.5. 6.5 is NOT a cool down rate.
Seems we all have the same question' How do I put this into my fitness tracker.

TO RUTH,you shouldn't be "exhausted".That's worse than no exercise.Walking for general weight loss is all about length of time walking,not a grueling short race.I think you'd be happier and better off walking at an enjoyable pace for an extra 10 or 15 minutes or walk twice a day for shorter times.Just don't quit,we're rooting for you.
I use my iPod to naturally create interval workouts. Since I walk to the beat, I create a playlist that varies in speed, allowing me to change up my effort, pace and stride song by song. These are some of the most enjoyable workouts I have... knowing that I'm working hard, but enjoying being out and moving... challenging myself without making it so difficult I become discouraged. LOVE walking!
