Running vs Walking

Walking is great cardio and you’ll be happy to learn walking has just as many cardiovascular  & caloric health benefits as running does. Put simply, your body doesn’t generate as much inertia walking as it does running, so you have to maintain continuous effort to move forward, where as your body benefits from the momentum generated by running to carry it forward allowing it to cruise along at a set pace once reached.
The difference between running and walking comes down to intensity which dictates the amount of calories burned and time required to burn them.  Obviously, running is more strenuous and thus burns more calories in a shorter amount of time.  However, running also tears muscle and more taxing on the joints and ligaments so there are pluses and minuses to both, but in the end…it all comes down to you and where you are in terms of cardiovascular fitness and your bodies abilities.  If you are just starting out or getting back into it, walking is the way to go…remember K.I.S.S. just get active and build a strong foundation!
