@Amanda,

Interesting article. I have heard the same thing.

But my HRM did show I burned at least 88 calories more, for a 4 mile run verses a 4 mile walk, same course.

I hated the HRM and sent it back. I have bad knees and just can't go in the aerobic zone, plus hated the chest strap.

You should burn more calories running (since that will increase your heart rate to a higher rate than walking). I will burn between 240-260 calories walking at 4 mph pace while I burn 840-880 calories running at 7 mph pace. If I did both activities at the same pace I would expect to burn the same amount of calories.

You do put more energy into running so would think that would burn more---and I know that different paces count differently on the FitBit towards exercise minutes and calories burned.

I have always been told that a mile burns the same calories wether you walk or run it. You just get done with the mile faster if you run it!

I have a general question

If a person walks 10,000 steps or jogs those same 10,000 steps, are more calories burned when jogging?
