    Itís because you do. Per minute, running burns more calories.

    Itís like weíre living in the 80ís with this question.

    back then you did aerobics, ran and ate alfalfa

    i think itís been well well documented over the years that running burns more calories than almost any activities whilst doing it.

    Why run?
    if you like it do it.

    im not really understanding the question


    Actions verify priorities

    Do you actually stay drier running than walking though??

    I remember seeing a myth busters about it, can't remember what the outcome was.

    Yeah, I remember that one, I think running was the better choice, less time in the rain even if leaning forward and collecting more drops was still the better option.

    Correct.

    Conversely, walking 5km burns the exact same calories/kilocalories as running 5km.

    So, if you want to burn calories and don't have any time constraints, walking will do the same job without the causing wear on the joints.

    Then again, sitting in front of the TV watching a downton abbey marathon while dropping 500mg of DNP will get you some nice weight loss too, but then you prolly gonna die.

    Actually for equal distance running still burns more calories.

    I personally hate it, Iíll jump in the pool, or on the pushy or on a chick before Iíd even consider running as an activity to elevate heart rate.

    Qik maff:

    work is equivalent to the application of a force over a distance
    W = F ◊ D ◊ cos(Θ)

    Interpreteation: work = force x distance x cosine (the angle between the vector of force and the vector of displacement).

    The study you mention used oxygen consumption as the sole indicator of energy expenditure.

    Neither time spent on the exercise (given the exercise to be walking and running) nor oxygen consumption are relevant for calculating the amount of work done.

    In practical terms, running is favoured over walking because:

    A: it takes less time.
    B: it "feels" more intense.
    C: compared to a workout with a medley of weight exercises (with short or no rest breaks) which burns more calories than running, the act of running is easy. People like easy.

    That's assuming the mechanics are the same, they aren't. Running is far more inefficient than walking.
