Which Is Better, Running or Walking?

The debate is on.  What is better, running or walking?  Well, when it comes to protection against heart disease, several recent studies have found that walking for extended periods of time and with regularity can help.  Twenty to thirty minutes, three times a week can help prevent the long-term damage.  Running can have a similar effect, but for many, it's difficult to sustain a regular running program.  The major advantage of running is that you can tone rapidly while burning calories.  So, which is better?  It really comes down to what you will stick with.  Consistency is the key.
