8 1/8’s make a mile cause then it is 8/8 which equals 1.

There are 8 1/8th’s in a mile. There are 8 furlongs to a mile, 5280 feet in a mile, 1760 yards in a mile, 1620 meters in a mile, 63360 inches in a mile. 3 miles is equivalent to a league (a measure not used anymore) there are 66 chains in a mile, a chain is 66 feet which is the exact length of a cricket pitch. I walk exactly 6400 meters every day for exercise so how many miles, feet and inches is that??

8 ‘1/8s’ make 1 mile.
Yes, the combo of walking and running or walking and then walking hard is a good combo to start with. You ideally want to get to the point where you are keep an elevated heartrate for 45 minutes straight…by elevated, meaning breathing hard enough that a conversation is difficult.

LOL….WOW….the correct answer is 8…you say so many because people can get on the trail at differant times..and they can just count the 8th one they see as a mile
