Time/Calories: Scratchy Bottom

The number of calories you use on a walk depends on you and the walk.

The walk distance, any hills you have to climb and the difficulty of the paths all affect the number of calories used while walking.

The idea of path difficulty is illustrated by the fact that it is much easier to walk on the promenade than on the soft, dry sand on the beach. The wet sand on the beach is somewhere between these extremes of difficulty. Why not try it next time you are near the beach?

The number of calories you use on a walk also depends on your weight and on how fast you walk.

The form at the bottom of the table allows you to enter your name and weight, when you click on the 'Add' button it will add your details to the table.
