How to Use a Pace Counter:
Simple instructions: Determine your normal pace by measuring 100 meters on level ground and walking it several times to count your paces per 100 meters. Establish counts in various terrains- uphill, downhill etc. for deteminining distances.
Example: it takes 65 paces to cover 100 meters. Step out with your left foot and count each time your right foot touches the ground. After counting the paces, pull down a bead from the nine (9) bead group. This equals approximately 100 meters. For each additional 100 meters, pull another bead down. At 1,000 meter point, a bead is pulled from 4-bead group, up to 5,000 meters.
