Hi everyone and it is another Sports and Fitness coaching blogpost and in today’s post I am writing about the difference between walking and running.
Now I have done both and what I love about walking is that you don’t have to where special gear to do it, and as long as the clothes are a comfortable fit, breathable and don’t rub when sweating, if you like me do a lot of walking, then it can be worn.
With running it is best to buy running bottoms and tops, because they are made especially for this activity and certain clothes like just a pair of leggins, in my experience can rub the more you sweat.
It is important when running you allow your body to breath and that means spending money on running shoes and clothes, where with walking as long as the shoes are comfy then again, they can be worn when walking with no problems.
I’m still not ready to run yet and today the back of my legs, which I have experience more when I have done some running, began to hurt whilst walking so this tells me that the walking I am doing is still benefiting me and I am still working those muscles without too much strain. When running it can cause a lot of strain, especially when running on concrete outdoors.
I am hoping that eventually with walking a lot again will end in me running again soon, but for the time being, if my body is not ready to run, then I will listen to it and keep on walking until I am physically able and ready to.
I will let you know how my fitness progresses as I get back into it, and what exercise I do.
Many thanks for reading,
