# Average Walking, Running Speed Miles per Hour

Calculate the average speed you are walking or running from a distance in miles and the elapsed time

##### Example Calculation
```the elapsed time of run = 34 minutes and 22 seconds
distance = 3.96 miles```

`Change the time to the same units (convert seconds to minutes);`
`one minute = 60 seconds`
`22 ÷ 60 = 0.366667 + 34 = 34.366667`
`34 minutes and 22 seconds is the same as 34.366667 minutes.`

`Convert the time to hours;`
`one hour = 60 minutes`
`34.366667 ÷ 60 = 0.57277778 rounded to `
`34 minutes and 22 seconds is the same as 0.573 hours`

`Divide the distance by time;`
`3.96 ÷ 0.573 = 6.91099 rounded to 6.91`
