original message: "Do you like to walk or run for your cardio?"
* I will do whatever gets my heart going! emoticon
I walked w/ nordic poles today. -- I will do HIIT on a stair stepper at the gym, or the elliptical trainer, or rowing, or stat. bike.

"Running sometimes hurts my hips, but I know burns way more calories than walking." TRUE, but...
* If you continue running with pain, you may add or cause additional trouble. And then where will you be?? I would highly advise finding out what causes the pain in your hips.
...could be you need different shoes? ...could be your gait? ...could be a muscle or structural imbalance? ...could be a tight IT band?
* I ended up ignoring hip pain and now I CAN'T run, plus it interrupted my sleep for months. It has taken over a year to work on addressing the causes and find relief.

I really like doing a mix of walking and jogging (although I'm afraid the jogging part isn't a very pretty sight!) We have hills everywhere around here, so even if walking, I get lots of inclines, and I do try to incorporate arm movements into it to increase the burn. (I guess "speed walking" is what I'm talking about there...) Whatever I do, it always feels great!

I prefer a run or a jog. If I walk (on the treadmill) I will do it at an incline. But I don't do this often.

Mostly walk...walk on an incline and fast enough to bring my heart rate up and break a sweat. I can jog, sometimes I mix it in as well, alterating walking & jogging.

Run. I don't count walking as cardio for me.

I jog. I do about a 12 minute mile, which is slow compared to some of my friends. But it's better than nothing. I try to keep a hop in my step the whole time. But if I'm not feeling up to it, I'll jog/walk. Again, anything is better than sitting on the couch eating bon bons :)

run, I can't walk fast enough to get my heart rate up, and I get injured from walking.

I walk due to my weight is carried 'out in front' and thereby pulls on my hip joints. Am increasing the intensity and I go 2 mi. a day.

I do both. Walk when my arthritis hurts in my knee.

I do both. If running hurts, you're either not doing it right, or you lack the right equipment! Remember that it's not about burning more calories, it's about adjusting your intake to meet the exercise you do. Running is great, but if it hurts you, you're going to end up not succeeding in the long run.

Do you like to walk or run for your cardio? Running sometimes hurts my hips, but I know burns way more calories than walking.
