    The answer is... 'it depends'! The points you get vary depending on your current weight, and length and intensity of your exercise.

    It does all depend, I found this web calculator which I tend to use as a guide only Web Points Calculator. Might help a bit.

    I put mine down as moderate as don't want to get it wrong and give myself too many points lol, but i was absolutely hanging by the time i finished running! I'm doing WW online so just put all the info in, and that's how it came up with the activity points on my tracker, but i can't find anywhere saying we have to do 10,000 steps before it kicks in. Pretty confused now lol x

    I would say moderate too, as long as you weren't stopping between lengths, otherwise I would say low. I think there is something somewhere in the books which says how to decide on low/moderate/high.
