To Walk or To Run – That is the Question

by Rachel Baker on August 17, 2013

Hate the idea of exercising or going to the treadmill but know you have to for your health? It just may turn out that long, slow walks are better than shorter, higher intensity runs. There’s an article at Today.com that discusses a small study that shows its more important to reduce your hours sitting than it is to exercise vigorously.

Exerpt:

A small new study suggests that you’ll be healthier if you spend your time taking long, slow walks – and standing instead of sitting whenever possible.

For those who detest working up a sweat at the gym this might sound too good to be true. But researchers have found that it may be more important to reduce your hours sitting than it is to exercise vigorously, according to the study published in PLOS ONE.
