Walking Better For You Than Running, And You Also Don't Need That Running Costume

It's all right. Nobody sees your failure right now. Nobody but that photographer ...."Brisk walking reduces the risk of heart disease more effectively than running when the energy expenditure of both activities is balanced out, a study has found. Running reduced the risk of heart disease by 4.5% while walking reduced it by 9.3%. Calorie for calorie, walking also had a stronger impact on heart disease risk factors. The risk of first-time high blood pressure was reduced by 4.2% by running and 7.2% by walking."
Taking a nice, brisk walk is better for you than running! It even reduces your high cholesterol more than running. Best of all, you don't have to run around sweating and huffing like an idiot, wearing those ridiculous clothes. Just have a nice walk, every day!

And yet no one wants to see "race walking."

@BadUncle I beg to differ! I enjoyed the hell out of the race walking during last summer's Olympics.

@Jinxie Perhaps I should have said "amateur race walking?"

Not that an excuse is ever needed to listen to The Ventures, but I now know what record I'm going to spin while cooking dinner tonight.

Provided you have enough time to spend as much energy on walking as you would on running. Which you don't.
