The answer seems obvious. Running of course right? Well in the long run, running does burn more calories. However looking at a one mile run versus a one mile walk the picture isn’t so clear. When walking for one mile, an average calorie burn is 80. Whereas for running, an average calorie burn is 97. This small difference isn’t much to compensate for the amount of strain running puts on your body. Now if you are running or walking for different lengths of hours the difference in calorie burn increases dramatically. At an easy pace you will burn over four times the amount of calories in an hour as you would if you were walking. The following picture also depicts how this difference changes with intensity as well as other exercises. So the next time you go out for a run or a walk decide the distance and choose your mode of exercise from there. NO EXCUSES. EARN YOUR BODY.
