They recommend using a pedometer and making sure you get 3000 steps in 30 minutes.

Another way you can keep up the pace: walk to music! I use my iPod to train at my target pace, and you can, too! Here are 10 songs, 40 minutes of music, at 100 steps/minute:

  1. Dancing Queen – ABBA – Pure Disco – 1976
  2. Gone Going – Black Eyed Peas – iTunes Originals Black Eyed Peas – 2005
  3. Don’t Tell Me – Madonna – Music – 2000
