Just recently Stuart has got me into using the Walk It web site. It's an urban walking route planner that works out the best way to walk from A to B with options for less busy routes and lower polution routes.
So a few weeks ago I started walking home from work - just once a week mind you - to see how it went. And do you know what? I really enjoyed it. So much so I'm now walking home two or three times a week. Hopefully I'll start walking to work soon too.
Here are the stats for my journey:
3.9 miles / 6.3 km / 6930 steps
59 mins (fast) / 1 hr 18 mins (med) / 1 hr 58 mins (slow)
374 Cal (fast) / 332 Cal (med) / 320 Cal (slow)
0.5 kg tube / 1.3 kg car / 0.68 kg bus
