Jay Sawyer, an avid jogger and walker from Glenview, IL says that running and walking are both excellent forms of exercise. Those who regularly do either typically have stronger bones, healthier hearts, and lower body weights as compared to their sedentary counterparts. His research shows that it's important for an average person to do a minimum of 150 to 300 minutes per week of moderate activity or 75 to 150 minutes of vigorous activity.

Talking about whether you must get those minutes walking or running, Jay Sawyer from Glenview, IL says that arguments can be made for both. The right one for you however depends on your specific goals and your current fitness level. His research also shows that the key difference between running and walking is how many calories you are burning – not per mile, but per minute of exercise. The same is said by Paul D. Thompson, M.D., Chief of Cardiology at Hartford Hospital and a Professor of Medicine and Preventive Cardiology at the University of Connecticut.
