original message: "Do you like to walk or run for your cardio?"
* I will do whatever gets my heart going!
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.
