Help tracking walking on MFP sbtripp — Feb 06, 2017 10:21AM PST

I am keeping up with my walking on MFP. I walked 20 minutes at lunch, rather fast. But in total I have walked 2.2 miles today. How can I say what portion of that was leisurely and what portion was my fast walking. Do I need to measure mileage with two devices?

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us.

You can always track multiple walks/runs.

There are always some exercises that vary for each individual, making the calories burned difficult to calculate accurately.

If you know roughly how many calories you are burning with a device like a heart rate monitor or activity tracker, you can override the calories burned field by tapping directly on it and then put in your information. You can also add a new exercise yourself, just go to “cardiovascular” and then “create new exercise.” Your estimate will be added to your personal database, and not the main database.

If you don’t want to use a heart rate monitor or similar device, you can make a rough estimate. This won’t be as accurate as an activity tracker. To do this, you can try substituting another exercise already in our database.

If you are interested in an activity tracker, you may want to look into our third party integrations. Several of our integrations offer solutions for monitoring your calorie burn over the course of the day and can update your MyFitnessPal calorie goals based on this data.

On the site, you can find out more about our integrations at http://www.myfitnesspal.com/apps.
