Walking vs. Jogging

Blog by: Michael Scruggs, Elite Health & Fitness, Inc. You probably already know that any movement you do gives your mood a big boost and makes a big difference in your weight loss efforts. There’s no shortage of ways to move your body, but a common question I gt over and over again is: Is my time better spent walking or running? Well time is the facto here, because a mile is a mile, no matter how you get there, the energy to move that distance is basically the same. The difference is the time you take to expend that energy. How much time do you have? What kind of movement are you capable of?Either one is good, but which one is better? Most people are looking for that quick fix…well obviously running is faster than walking.When it comes to only how many calories you burn per hour, running is obviouslythe better workout.

Depending on your physical condition, running for 30 minutes (or longer) may be out of the question.
