I was just reading that a good walking pace for fitness is about a 15 minute mile. That's pretty close to my typical pace. What do you think yours might be?

On a good day I can walk a 15 min mile.  But it's more typically between 15-20 min for me.

Yeah-it really depends on the temperature and the terraine for me. If it is super hot I walk slower and when I am in the park with hills, etc. I don't go as fast. If I am on the track or treadmill I can go 15 or below fairly easy.

Hmmm. I don't know. That sounds slow for me. I think I walk close to 12 minutes a mile. I guess I will have to time myself tomorrow to see.
