Is walking better than running?

Tuesday, January 02, 2018

Yes sirree! "Is walking better than running?" is a FAQ of many. And of course, many fitness pros, medical professionals, and others with opinions (fact based or otherwise) will provide answers.

Here's mine.

Lately, I say yes....given my fitness level, desire to keep exercising (tired of quitting and restarting) and overall attitude. At the current moment, that is.

If nothing else, walking is more natural, right? And they say you burn 80% of the calories of running, while only using 50% of impact on your joints....so why not give it a try? I know I can walk for an hour.....I can't run anywhere near that long!

Whatever helps you attain your goals.
