THanks Jenn. It gives me 130 calories I'm burning. Sounds pretty good. I tried to enter it at fitday.com and it only said I was burning 91 calories and I thought it HAD to be more than that! ~Beki =)

That's weird, Beki. I entered the 2 mile at fitday and they told me I burned 160 cals. Hrmmm.

I have Leslie Sansone's "Power Walking System" DVD, and she has an "Ask Leslie" section on it. She addresses this very question, and says it's on average about 125 calories per mile. She did say that a lot of variables would change that including your weight and activity level. Also, doing the arm movements and adding the weights increases the number of calories burned. She concluded by saying that to get an estimate, it's just safest to figure about 125 calories per mile. :-)
