Hi Misty:

The pedometers handed out were unfortunately useless.  Mine didn't last more than a week.  The one I use is from Brookstone.  It works great, although I did run the battery down, so it's time for a new battery.

I also use a pulse monitor, for the times I do cardio.  It helps to know when to back down, or kick it up a notch.  A neat thing about them is they also communicate with the elliptical cross trainer and recumbent bikes, so you can monitor your pulse while using that equipment.  Since not all the handles have readers, this makes frees one up to exercise however desired.

Cheers,

Ken

HI Misty:

Not taking the class and have to replace the battery in my pedometer, but great job!  Thanks for adding me to your friends list. 

I walk about 10,000 steps a day, between work, noontime exercise and walking my dog each evening, but haven't gone for any records yet.

 Guess thats next.

Cheers,

Ken
