Running is the Best Burn Calories

Exercise &
Calories Burned

Running (10-minute pace) = 100 calories
Cycling = 90 calories
Swimming = 79 calories
Aerobics = 79 calories
Weight Lifting = 68 calories
Walking = 43 calories

Although running is a killer calorie burner, everything you do burns calories. With the following tweaks to just a few of your daily activities, you can burn an extra 800 calories.

Activity & Calories Burned

Add 15 minutes of floor exercises (crunches, leg lifts, back exercises) to a workout = 130 calories
After an easy run, jump rope for 10 minutes = 100 calories
Add 15 minutes of stretching to a workout = 45 calories

"If I don't get to run, the world knows it. When I do run everything seems to go better. Running somehow, someway has a knack at making the bad things seem a little less bad and the good things a whole lot better. Who needs shrinks? Just lace 'em up and run. . ."

"I always loved was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs."

Beer and Running from Runner's

Just talk about beer's effects in running yesterday with my friend, CY. Then I found this article: Beer and Running from Runner's website.


Cheers for our another 8 weeks training!

"You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement."
