Burning Calories, while walking...

Since summer is nearing its end, I have been taking advantage of the weather by trying to walk outside as much as possible.  But in doing so I never really know how many calories I am burning while I walk. 

So I found this article that says, a simple rule of thumb is 100 calories per mile for a 160 pound person, and it says you burn more calories at lower speeds!  That shocks me!  So I used the walking calories calculator, and it says that if I walk 5 miles based on my current weight I would burn 957 calories!  WOW!
