Running isn’t for everyone. It can put strain on the joints while pounding the pavement. Why not walk briskly instead and burn nearly the same number of calories?
You will need to double the time spent exercising, but the outcome will be nearly identical. Walk for an hour at a 13 minute mile pace and you’ll burn 270 calories, the same as a 30 minute run at a 10 minute mile pace. 60 minutes isn’t bad for a walk to get the blood pumping with a do-anywhere cardio workout.
