Which activity is technically better: swimming or running? I've heard swimming doesn't stress joints too much and burns more calories.
Both have positives: Swimming is less stressful on the joints, and does burn more calories in general, but is not as accessible as running for most people. Different muscle groups are utilized in the activities, and a balanced physical fitness program incorporates lots of different activities. Variety is good. ...Read more

Consumption: Eat less walk more.Get a more detailed answer ›
10 min isn't sprint: Consider that the world record for a 2 mile run is just under 8 minutes (7:58.61) 10 min at that pace would get 21/2 miles. A frequently stated number for running is 100 calories/mile but factors like speed, body weight etc. Aren't figured into this. So running a pace of 4 minute miles for 10 minutes would burn far more than 250 calories. ...Read more
