Of course, if you go by the strict definition of scoring, running/walking are scored differently from cardio.
For me, however, I have been doing the run/walk thing for 3 miles, and it takes me 40 minutes.
If I score that as run/walk, it's 12 points.
If I score that as cardio (which it is, but not in the VRAA definition), it's 13 points.
I'm fine with that. I will continue to score it as 12 points.
Of course, the original expectation was that this was a running game, on a running message board and also that the average runner runs more than 3 miles in 40 minutes. So, running would always equal more points than Cardio.
Popped in, saw this, and had to reply. Back in the day when I used to participate in the VRAA (hey! I made a rhyme!) I asked about hiking. I hike the NH White Mountain 4,000 footers. Sometimes 6 miles will take 4 hours (total hiking) with lots of elevation gain, rock scrambling, etc. But, because I knew the mileage, I could only count it as 6 miles x 4 points/mile = 24. For cardio it would have been what .... 80 points? (240 min/ 3points per mile). Even as commish I couldn't change the ruling, too many were opposed.
