My iPod is a pedometer

iPod as Pedometer

My iPod serves as my step counter. And I’m no where near 10,000 steps a day. Here’s my story.

I love the NPR show Fresh Air. My local public radio station doesn’t carry it, so I listen to the podcasts. Everytime I go for a walk, I play a Fresh Air podcast. Today is September 25. When I picked up my iPod for a walk this morning, I was ready to listen to a podcast from July 14. That means I’m over two months behind. Translated into exercise terms, it means I missed the daily walk so many times I really shouldn’t call it a daily walk.

There is no chance of skipping a podcast. Every one is too interesting to miss. My iPod is nagging me to be a healthier person.

  1. hi.. great post. I don’t see how you are using your ipod classic as a pedometer. Are you using an app or is there built in function? thanks.

  2. Diego, I keep track of how often I actually go for a walk by seeing how far behind I am on listening to podcasts of “Fresh Air.” My iPod is not really counting my steps.
