Common Walking Myths Can Lead to Injuries

1. MYTH: Running Burns More Calories Per Mile Than Walking
While vigorous activity burns more calories than moderate activity over the same period of time, speed plays only plays a part in how many calories you can burn per mile. In fact, if you walk briskly for a mile, you will burn the same calories as if you ran a mile. Running or fast walking simply gets you there faster; it doesn't change the mileage. What this shouldn't suggest is that slow walking for five miles will burn the same calories as sprinting the same distance. It's really more about how efficiently your muscles are being used.

2. MYTH: You Need to Drink a Lot of Water When Walking
The guidelines for endurance exercise are pretty straightforward: drink when thirsty.

Drink a tall glass of water an hour before walking. While walking, drink about a cup of water (six to eight ounces) every half hour, or more often if you feel thirsty.

3. MYTH: Arm and Ankle Weights Amp Up Your Powerwalking
4. MYTH: You Can Prepare for a Marathon in 3 to 6 Months

Is Walking Better Than Running?
Ultimately, it comes down to your situation and needs. Know that a walking program is effective exercise and can lead to weight loss with proper calorie balance, so you shouldn't feel like you're not doing enough.

Preparing to walk: Learn what you need to do before you begin a walking program. This may include getting medical advice, investing in basic walking gear like shoes and clothing, and more.

Walking Technique: Focus on proper posture, use of arms, and leg motion.

Walking Schedule: Determine how often to walk, how fast, different types of walking, and how far to build up to the level of 30-60 minutes per day.

Staying Motivated: Explore techniques for keeping yourself walking and avoiding common mistakes.
