How Good Is To Run 3 Miles Daily
Running: You will expend more calories and use a wider array of muscles from running 5 miles per day then cycling 10 miles.

Also consider the differences if your goal is not condition but weight loss. ...Read more
How can I run for miles? I heard of the run walk program but does it really work well enough to make me run at a reasonable pace for miles?
At least 30 mins/day: Probably 60 minutes is a better number. It is not just how long you walk but your speed is important too. You should try to walk at a speed of 1 mile in 15 minutes. The most effective exercise is interval training. You walk at 4 mph for 2 min, then speed up to 6-7mph for 1 min, back to 4mph for 2 min, then 6-7mph for 1 min. If you do interval training, you only need to walk 25 minutes total. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If i walk 30 minutes daily at 5 km/h, will it be useful for weight loss? And if no, what is the recommended practice to get result?
Distance not time: Walking is an excellent exercise. The speed is not as important as the distance. At 5 km/h for 30 min you will walk about 2.5 km (1.5 mile). Depending on your size, you will burn about 120-180 calories. To lose 1 lb you need to burn 3500 calories. I generally recommend walking 15 miles (24 km) per week in order to lose weight. ...Read more
