My doctor has recommended that I switch to power walking, instead of running! I read up on it last night and found out that I can burn just about the same amount of calories power walking as running and get a great lower-body workout with only half the force of impact on muscles, joints, and my newly uplifted pelvic organs. That’s for me! I might even carry hand weights once I get used to the new routine.
Coincidentally, a terrific article came out today on SaveOurBones.com that discusses which is better for you: running or walking. If you’d like to read it, here’s the link: http://saveourbones.com/walking-vs-running-which-is-better-for-your-bones/
