Summary of walking vs. running study (Read 287 times)

    This study made some misleading headlines, IMO. I've been seeing headlines along the lines of "walking is just as good as running", however the study notes that you have to do twice as much walking as running (in terms of time) to reap those "just as good" benefits.

      A dollar is just as good as 10 dollars, you just need 10 of them.

        "Walking may be a more sustainable activity for some people when compared to running," he added. "However, those who choose running end up exercising twice as much as those who choose walking ... probably because they can do twice as much in an hour."

         

        People get paid to figure this stuff out? I'm available for a small fee to explain the subtleties of water being wet.

          Another groundbreaking discovery that will revolutionize science for ever thanks to the relentless effort of the University of Obvioustown.

          "If one can stick to the training throughout the many long years,
          then will power is no longer a problem. It's raining? That doesn't matter.
          I am tired? That's besides the point. It's simply that I just have to."

            A mile is not a mile.  If I walk 10 miles and keep my heart rate < 80 or I run 10 miles and keep my heart rate > 150, I will get 2 different types of benefits from the efforts.  Some of the benefit will overlap, some will not.

             

            Over a large amount of time - Say 1-5 years, the benefits will become even more divergent.

              My conclusion:  Your experience and common sense is worth a lot more than a study by a clueless investigator.

              Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                "Running a Marathon,can be dangerous to your health",this is known. In studying this issue,I found that the average runner,is not well  conditioned to the effort invested. This results in increasing  morbidity and mortality associated with this type of sport. Post marathon period of recovery,is studded with opportunities for short term and long term morbidity and mortality. Recently,I invented,wrote and described,the issues associated with the run.The article is titled:"Post Marathon Syndrome:P.M.S.2" Expect its submission and publication shortly. In the meantime,this forum is open for discussion..

                  An interesting study could address the hypothesis that unfit people work hard to invalidate or even stigmatize athletic endeavors.

                    "When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem."

                      FAR more people die of heart attacks each year while eating breakfast or shortly thereafter, than die from running a marathon. Therefore, eating breakfast is clearly bad for your health, and should be avoided by the massively untrained masses.

                       

                      (My personal opinion is that the average eater has not done enough running to support the efforts and caloric intake of eating said breakfast.)

                            It is dangerous to rely on unproven assertions like this. This is where scientific study can really provide benefit to our society as a whole.

                             

                            Please send me one envelope full of ten dollar bills, and another (larger) envelope full of one dollar bills, and I'll share the results of my careful study with you, after I perform it.

                            It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.
