Is It Better to Walk or Run?


Walking and running are the most popular physical activities for American adults. But whether one is preferable to the other in terms of improving health has long been debated. Now a variety of new studies that pitted running directly against walking are providing some answers. Their conclusion? It depends almost completely on what you are hoping to accomplish.

If, for instance, you are looking to control your weight — and shallowly or not, I am — running wins, going away. In a study published last month in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, and unambiguously titled “Greater Weight Loss From Running than Walking,” researchers combed survey data from 15,237 walkers and 32,215 runners enrolled in the National Runners and Walkers Health Study — a large survey being conducted at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, Calif.

Participants were asked about their weight, waist circumference, diets and typical weekly walking or running mileage both when they joined the study, and then again up to six years later.

The runners almost uniformly were thinner than the walkers when each joined the study. And they stayed that way throughout. Over the years, the runners maintained their body mass and waistlines far better than the walkers.

The difference was particularly notable among participants over 55. Runners in this age group were not running a lot and generally were barely expending more calories per week during exercise than older walkers. But their body mass indexes and waist circumferences remained significantly lower than those of age-matched walkers.

Why running should better aid weight management than walking is not altogether clear. It might seem obvious that running, being more strenuous then walking, burns more calories per hour. And that’s true. But in the Berkeley study and others, when energy expenditure was approximately matched — when walkers head out for hours of rambling and burn the same number of calories over the course of a week as runners — the runners seem able to control their weight better over the long term.

One reason may be running’s effect on appetite, as another intriguing, if small, study suggests. In the study, published last year in the Journal of Obesity, nine experienced female runners and 10 committed female walkers reported to the exercise physiology lab at the University of Wyoming on two separate occasions. On one day, the groups ran or walked on a treadmill for an hour. On the second day, they all rested for an hour. Throughout each session, researchers monitored their total energy expenditure. They also drew blood from their volunteers to check for levels of certain hormones related to appetite.

After both sessions, the volunteers were set free in a room with a laden buffet and told to eat at will.

The walkers turned out to be hungry, consuming about 50 calories more than they had burned during their hourlong treadmill stroll.

The runners, on the other hand, picked at their food, taking in almost 200 calories less than they had burned while running.

The runners also proved after exercise to have significantly higher blood levels of a hormone called peptide YY, which has been shown to suppress appetite. The walkers did not have increased peptide YY levels; their appetites remained hearty.

So to eat less, run first.

But on other measures of health, new science shows that walking can be at least as valuable as running — and in some instances, more so. A study published this month that again plumbed data from the Runners and Walkers Health Study found that both runners and walkers had equally diminished risks of developing age-related cataracts compared to sedentary people, an unexpected but excellent benefit of exercise.

And in perhaps the most comforting of the new studies, published last month in Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology and again using numbers from the versatile Runners and Walkers Health Study, runners had far less risk of high blood pressure, unhealthy cholesterol profiles, diabetes and heart disease than their sedentary peers. But the walkers were doing even better. Runners, for instance, reduced their risk of heart disease by about 4.5 percent if they ran an hour a day. Walkers who expended the same amount of energy per day reduced their risk of heart disease by more than 9 percent.

Of course, few walkers match the energy expenditure of runners. “It’s fair to say that, if you plan to expend the same energy walking as running, you have to walk about one and a half times as far and that it takes about twice as long,” said Paul T. Williams, a staff scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories and the lead author of all of the studies involving the surveys of runners and walkers.

On the other hand, people who begin walking are often more unhealthy than those who start running, and so their health benefits from the exercise can be commensurately greater.

“It bears repeating that either walking or running is healthier than not doing either,” Dr. Williams said, whatever your health goals.

For confirmation, consider one additional aspect of the appetite study. The volunteers in that experiment had sat quietly for an hour during one session, not exercising in any fashion, neither running nor walking. And afterward they were famished, consuming about 300 calories more than the meager few they had just burned.

How to Run Faster Without Ever Touching a Treadmill

By Emily Abbate

3 days ago

You've been running the same route at the same pace long enough. Here is everything you need to know about how to incorporate speed training into your workout.

For most people, distance running is a chore they perform begrudgingly—an activity that has earned a permanent spot in their fitness routine because they know it is really, really good for them, and not because it brings them any measurable amount of joy.

Reluctant runner, we hear you. And the way we see it, if you’re going to spend time pounding the pavement despite all this unpleasantness, you may as well be fast. Fast things are fun! Race cars. Diamond lanes. Relationships. (Sometimes.) Plus, speed means that your run will be over sooner. We sat down with a few experts to learn how to run faster, why speed training is a good thing for every running style, and how you can do it without ever having to touch a treadmill.

Why should I care about getting faster?

We all know that guy who runs effortlessly around the neighborhood for between 12 and 15 miles on a weekend, and who wraps with some sort of post-jaunt Instagram story about what podcast he listened to in the process. While there’s nothing wrong with being the long runs guy, all those same-distance, steady-speed long runs can get monotonous.

Speed workouts help, says Corinne Fitzgerald, a coach at New York City treadmill studio Mile High Run Club. “They keep things interesting. They’ll elevate your heart rate faster than a long run, allow you to burn a lot of calories in a short amount of time.” Integrating speed work can improve your performance in those longer runs, too, by boosting your oxygen consumption and recruiting fast-twitch muscle fibers to work alongside the slow-twitch fibers on which the body usually relies during endurance activities.

Even a few seconds’ difference can mean a lot. “Shaving any time off your run tells you that you're getting better,” says Kevin St. Fort, a precision running coach and group fitness manager at Equinox. “For you to get faster, you've likely had to get stronger. You’ll have to breathe more efficiently. You'll make improvements in so many areas that what is perceived as a marginal increase in time is, in reality, quite an overall improvement.”

How do I do it?

Mentally channeling Usain Bolt is fun, but it’s not going to magically make you an Olympic sprinter. Begin by slowly adding speed training to your routine so you don’t burn out. “It’s good to have one to three runs a week where you push,” suggests Matt Wilpers, a treadmill and cycling instructor at Peloton. “The rest should be a more comfortable—or what we like to refer to as ‘conversational’—pace, in order to give your body time to adapt.”

Be warned: The first few attempts will feel like a kick to the gut, because it is not a type of running to which you’re accustomed. But that won’t last forever. The longer you work on speed training, the faster you’ll become, and then you’ll be able to look back and laugh, because, Man, who was that slow guy sucking wind? You don’t even know him anymore.

Don’t I need a treadmill to ensure I’m running fast enough?

No! While treadmills are a great way to make sure you’re hitting certain targets, getting faster doesn’t require voluntarily imprisoning yourself in a room full of hamster wheels. Most smart watches provide accurate pace readings, and if even that feels overwhelming, try monitoring your workout’s rate of perceived exertion, or RPE. This is when you rank your effort based on how hard you think you’re working. For instance, if running a nine-minute mile feels reasonably difficult for you (say, a 6 out of 10), then your push pace may hover around a seven-minute mile (say, an 8 out of 10).

Here is what outdoor speed work might look like in practice: If you’re in a park, or even just running city blocks, vary your speeds in between each lamp post or intersection. Run hard for two lamp post lengths, then jog for two, and repeat that sequence eight times. (In the running community, intervals of short, fast runs and longer, slower runs are sometimes called fartleks, which are less fun to execute than they are to pronounce.) If you find that you’re gassed and need to walk instead of jog between sets, that’s okay! Everyone has a different sweet spot.

“Less-structured running can be fun and equally as impactful,” says Rich Velasquez, COO at Mile High Run Club. Velasquez shares another one of his go-to speed workouts, especially for those who run on a track: striders. Start with a mile jogging warm-up, and then, for 45 seconds, boost your RPE to an 8 or 9. Fall back to a recovery jog for 90 seconds after that. “Rule of thumb: speed is not an all-out sprint,” he says. If one or two sets is all you can manage, slow down.
Any other tips I should keep in mind?

Don’t expect to see immediate results. “It is important to be consistent in executing your routine week after week, as these changes take time and patience with your body,” says Wilpers. “One or two speed workouts are not going to do a whole lot for anyone. They must consistently applied over time, and balanced with adequate rest and recovery.”

In other words: Don’t quit the first time you feel like summoning an Uber and collapsing into the back seat. That just means that what you’re doing is working.

Science: Running Is Better Than Every Other Exercise at Making You Live Longer

By Jay Willis

May 1, 2017

And a little bit goes a long way!

In what should come as welcome news to your high school gym teacher and a grim revelation to everyone who finds running to be dreadfully dull and monotonous, a new review published in Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases—easily my favorite peer-reviewed heart health publication, for the record—has concluded that running, more than any other form of physical activity, is the best exercise at the all-important task of keeping you alive.

After comparing the findings from a number of large-scale studies, the researchers calculated that runners have a 30-45 percent lower risk of "all-cause mortality"—or, in layman's terms, "dying early." Runners live about three years longer than non-runners, and roughly speaking, each hour spent running adds seven precious hours to one's lifespan. After controlling for smoking, booze consumption, body mass index, and the like, running still was found to reduce all-cause mortality risk by an impressive 25-40 percent. In other words, even if you're a larger individual who enjoys a good cigar with your beer, running is your best bet for ensuring that you have more days ahead in which to enjoy those things.

Unsurprisingly, people who run consistently and also engage in other forms of exercise, including cycling, swimming, basketball, and racket sports, among others, see the most significant health benefits. But among workout purists, interestingly, running is king—people who stick exclusively to running are significantly better off than those who stick only to, well, anything besides running. These findings suggest that if you have time for only one form of physical activity in your life, you should prepare to log some time on the treadmill.

As the researchers point out, their findings mean that running might just be the most cost-effective "life medicine" from a public health standpoint, since it's convenient and inexpensive for both the individual, who really only needs a good pair of shoes, and the government, which is (hopefully) already paving the streets and sidewalks. Plus, it correlates strongly with smaller waist measurements and lower body weights, so the time you put in will help you feel better and empower you to peel off your shirt at the right time. Most importantly, you don't have to treat every run like the Boston Marathon in order to reap the benefits—the authors note that "even slow jogging is consistently considered a vigorous-intensity [physical activity]," which means that you, a well-informed fitness enthusiast armed with a newfound appreciation for the art of the jog, get to spend less time exercising and more time doing whatever it is you do with your down time.
