Essential Guide to Walking and Steps
Walking is one of the most rewarding lifelong activities you can choose. While it may not be a huge calorie burner — the average person burns about 100 calories or so per mile — adding more mileage to your day can make a big difference in weight control. According to Harvard Health Watch, one 2009 study found the average person gains about 2.2 pounds a year during middle age. However, over 15 years of research, the study found that individuals who walked regularly gained significantly less weight than those who didn’t.
My Comments: Pretty good article on walking with focus on steps. In recent months I have moved away from the heavy toll of long distance or time span running to stepping. I will focusing on stepping for the remainder of the year, although I want to do a half marathon. I will see how that goes.
