Sure it's lower impact, but I'm counting it. The park is just under a mile from our house so we'll count 1.5 miles. The way there, I carried a 2lb water container and alternated which arm was lifting it up and down. On the way home, I had to carry a toddler about half of the way so that counts for something as well, LOL.
It was so nice to get outside in this much missed 80-degree weather! :)
