I spent this afternoon working in our yard. As an aside from this story, I have never quite got use to Americans calling what surrounds their house a yard. In the UK it is a garden and when you are working out there, you are gardening.

Anyway, I was out in our yard pushing a wheelbarrow backwards and forwards, going to the shed for tools, and was wondering how far I was traveling just by walking around the garden. In steps (pun not intended) my Apple Watch. I set it to measure an open ended walk, and carried on working.

A little while later a vibration on my wrist told me that I had just hit the one mile mark. I was really quite surprised, and it showed me the exercise that I can do just by being in the garden.
