    Question Power walking versus running

    Hi all, is it possible to lose weight and get fit with power walking as much as you can with running? I have done both but I'm not great at running I get shin splints and out of breath quite easily as I'm asthmatic. I've tried the couch to 5k that the nhs suggest but I struggle. With walking I've easily done 8 miles with no breathing issues but not sure it will help me lose weight! Any advice? X

    The only exercise I have done for the last 18 months is walking.I too can walk for miles but I did try doing the couch to 5k along the beach and didn't enjoy it as much as walking.

    Any exercise is better than none.
    November exercise TOTAL 226.50 miles walked,5 hrs 10 mins run on treadmill.

    It's not about being better than others, it's about being better than YOU use to be.

    Yes I agree that any is better than none. How often do you go per week? Congrats on your weight loss!

    I try and go every day(weather permitting) and do a min of 3 miles on a wet day and if it's sunny I can walk for 10 miles just around the town.

    I totally agree I can power walk for miles no problem but I actually get back pain and out if breath so quick when running. I definitely think it works as good as running its just off putti g when people comment saying its not as good but a few years ago I saw results from walking , so should really get back in the power walking ... Roll on summertime! X
