A great debate for The New Year!!
The debate is on. What is better, running or walking? Well, when it comes to protection against heart disease, several recent studies have found that walking for extended periods of time and with regularity can help. Twenty to 30 minutes, three times a week can help prevent the long-term damage. Running can have a similar effect, but for many, it's difficult to sustain a regular running program. The major advantage of running is that you can tone rapidly while burning calories. So, which is better? I think it really comes down to what you will stick with. I think consistency is the key. You have to do something that you're going to do on a regular basis. If you don't, you lose out because then you ultimately just don't get the exercise you need. If you don't do that, you're going to fall behind.
