Running Versus Walking

Question:  I am considering starting to run for exercise but I have heard that you can get just as much cardiovascular benefit from walking.  Is that true?

Answer: If you are a beginner to exercising, or if you are more than 15 pounds over-weight, you don't want to go outside and just start running.  In fact, I would recommend that you go outside and start walking instead.  Walking and running can produce the exact same cardiovascular benefits and will burn the same number of calories.  The only difference is that with walking, you have to be out there longer.  Runners can get a great workout in half an hour of running, while walkers would probably have to walk briskly for about an hour to get the same results.
