Walk a Total of 10 Miles

In this challenge you can distribute your 10 miles according to your preferences. (Example: You can walk 2 miles/day for 5 days or 3-4 miles one day and adjust it accordingly for the week.) We suggest pairing up with a walking buddy, because as research indicates that working out with a friend or family member not only makes fitness more enjoyable, but it also helps you stay on track and maintain your exercise goals. Also, don't forget to use a pedometer. It will help keep track of just how many steps you take!
