    This is great, except jogging is possibly the worst exercise one could do, so you might want to try Yoga instead.  ;)

    Citation, please…?

  • prof_peabody

    I was referring to the known fact that *walking* provides all the same benefits jogging does but without all the downside.  The downside of jogging includes stress and wear on the bones, joints, connective tissue, and potential heart problems from the protracted elevated heart rate.  

    AFAIK there is currently no evidence that jogging does anything positive for you that simple walking does not also do.  

    Also, for women, jogging == saggy boobs.  ;)

    You’re an idiot.

    “The downside of jogging includes stress and wear on the bones, joints, connective tissue” – that much is true, at least.

    Go biking, climbing and swimming, folks!

    I have been using RunKeeper for about a year now. I bike 150-200 miles a week and the app is great! The auto-pause feature is something I have been looking for, and very excited to see incorporated.

    I’ve heard the part about wear on bones and joints a lot in the fitness industry but it depends on your form. Inexperienced runners/joggers cause a lot more impact on each step. A small change in form can clear it up on most people.
