Is it healthier to run 4 days a week for 16 minutes at at 8:30 mile pace, or 2 days a week for 30 minutes at a 9:30 pace?

You decide: Even at your relatively young 28 years, the key is that you are still exercising. Most of us will probably tell you to try for 30 minutes of exercise daily. ...Read more

Exercise will tone the body , but not be a very big part of actual weight loss. Without major attention to calories. ...Read more

What would be a good jogging pace for a 56 yr old man looking for cardiovascular health benefits? And how many miles per day?

What would be a good jogging pace for a 56 yr old man looking for cardiovascular health benefits? And how many miles per day?

Highly variable: Pace and distance are highly variable among runners, depending on their experience level, goals, desire, prior injuries/orthopedic conditions and conditioning level. I would recommend you start gradually, perhaps at a pace of 9-11 minutes per mile and 1-3 miles on non-consecutive days. You can increase your distance 10-20%/week and consider a goal of decreasing your pace/mile by 30 seconds/month. ...Read more

An xray, : Ct scan or MRI would be able to tell you what the situation of the bone. Is that what normally happens? No. But, if a cyst is present it doesn't really matter how it got there the idea is to deal with it..meaning treat it if necessary. ...Read more

I've been power walking 4 miles a night at a 13 min. mile pace 5 or 6 nights a week. Suddenly I'm getting sharp stinging pain below my calf. Age 57?

Congrats: on getting a healthy amount of exercise! It sounds as if you have aggravated your calf muscle or possibly the knee joint. Give yourself some time off power waking, rest your leg and reassess in a few days. ...Read more

I am a 45 year old male. My restin heart rate is 42-44bpm. When running a 3 mile sub 6 min/mile pace my max heart rate touched 205bpm. Is this normal?

I am a 45 year old male. My restin heart rate is 42-44bpm. When running a 3 mile sub 6 min/mile pace my max heart rate touched 205bpm. Is this normal?

probably not: The maximum predicted heart rate for someone your age is 175. That's not hard and fast but 205 sounds suspicious. You should undergo a treadmill stress test and see if you can reproduce that hr on cardiac monitoring. If not, you should wear a 30 day event monitor. ...Read more
