If you’re contemplating adding walking or running to improve your health in the New Year, don’t fret over how fast you go. Many studies show that it doesn’t matter whether you walk, jog, or sprint, covering 1 mile will burn the same. Approximately 100 calories for the average person.
So, whether you’re on a treadmill, at a park, or out at the track, the longer your distance, the more calories you’ll burn.
Slow and steady can help you win the race of life!
