This may be a stupid question, but this is the first time I’ve actually done “cardio” on a consistent basis. I was overweight as a child and half my teen years and lost a lot of fat basically all from lifting and dieting. I’ve been at a pretty healthy weight for some years now. Until now I haven’t really done much cardio and recently decided to start practicing it regularly; I’m quite enjoying it actually!
I like to take a 4 mile “power walk” at roughly 3.5-4 mph just to burn off some extra calories. Recently during my walks, I’ve been jogging sections of it to speed things up, theoretically burning more calories. Since I’m new to this I’m not too sure if there’s something I’m missing.
My question is would jogging sections of my walk (almost like interval jogging..?) burn additional calories than had I just walked the entire 4 miles at a constant walking speed?
EDIT: there are quite some polarizing replies with some suggesting there is no difference m, to yes I will burn addition... keep reading on reddit ➡
My wife and I were sitting on the couch watching TV when our daughter (17) came downstairs, dressed in her jogging outfit, and heading for the door. "Bye!" she said.
"Where are you going?" I asked.
"Yeah, and you're not going. Why didn't you go in the morning?"
"I slept in and then I had classes."
"Oh well. Set your alarm. You're not going. It's dangerous."
Then my wife tried to get me to let her go, but I refused to budge. I explained to the both of them how we live in a tree-laden area with barely any lights. Anyone could be lurking in the shadows/bushes and you wouldn't see them until it was too late.
My wife said that could happen in the daytime, too.
I said, "True, but in the daytime, you'll be able to see more and have a better chance of avoiding or escaping any dangerous situations."
Bottom line: she's not going. I put my foot down and now they're both upset and not speaking to me. Frankly. I don't care if they're upset.... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m a 25 y/o man. Every morning around 6 am I go for a jog around the park near my apartment. I live in a big city however its still pretty quiet at 6 am.
The past week, there’s a young woman [20s] who has been jogging on my usual route. For the last few days she has been virtually following me throughout my entire jog. She smiles and says hi to me and I say hi back, but mostly we jog in silence.
This morning I jogged at 7am instead and she was following me again. I was a bit creeped out and approached her, I asked her why she has been following me. She became embarassed and told me that she likes morning jogs but is afraid of getting assaulted because theres so little people around, and she says she feels safer when she’s jogging near me.
I told her I don’t really feel comfortable having someone follow me when I’m running. She looked upset but said she understands and said she will jog another route from now on.
I told my sister about this and she said I’m a dick for not lettin... keep reading on reddit ➡
As you know, french bulldogs have breathing issues due to their deformed noses.
I saw a girl jogging with her french bulldog. I told my wife i wanted to say something, but she said not to, so I didn't.
A few days later, I saw the same girl and dog around my neighborhood walking, so I took this chance to say something. I told her to please consider her dog's breathing issues when jogging. She told me when she jogs with him, she does intervals of light jogging for 1 min then does 3 mins of walking for 15-20 mins and she only does this every two weeks. Never in the Summer.
I see where she's coming from, but I told her he's probably not doing too good. She then says he runs constantly in dog parks for more than an hour so he's fine. I told her thats different. She says "ok i hear you - have a great day!". Honestly this is a rude response since I feel dismissed. So I ask if she's going to stop. She says probably not. At this point I'm mad so I tell her she shouldn't have gotten this bree... keep reading on reddit ➡
I am a beginner, like super beginner. It's hard for me to run more than 5 mins. I bought a pair of running shoes yesterday and I started running today. Thinking I would just be able to get on the treadmill and run a mile I was mistaken. I want to thoroughly enjoy running. Ive tried to run before but I always kind of dreaded it because my main goal was to lose weight instead of doing it because I like it. Is it just something where you had to push through the beginning stages until it became easier for you? Did you learn to love it by training for something? Is there a certain mindset that made you enjoy it? Do you not listen to anything and try to almost meditate while running or do you like to listen to music? Did you start on a treadmill, run through a park, run in your neighborhood? I would love to hear your opinions, suggestions, advice!
Unrelated but if anyone that is just beginning wants to be virtual run partners and report to each other our progress I would love to do that!
I'm just so sad. I am so insecure, so fearful. I want to be myself and feel healthy and happy.
I don't want to waste my mental energy wondering what unfaithful things my boyfriend is thinking.
I am wasting what could be a healthy and fun relationship, by worrying all the time and automatically thinking the worst about him. I am wasting my life by being in a relationship when I will never be able to know the truth about what is happening inside my boyfriend's mind.
There is a ton of different posts, for example:

Unfortunately, this case is not very well documented on the internet. Basically, I only found one (German) entry in a missing persons database and several discussions in (German) discussion forums. All related newspaper articles are not available online anymore (it was the beginning of the internet age…). Although I was just a kid at this time, I remember the case sparked a lot of discussions in my family (I’m from this region).
As I have only one source the background is thin.
Rolf Hannappel (*1950) was husband of Clara and father of Kristina. He had a stable job. He also was a very active runner (up to marathon distance).
On the evening of Monday, August 26th 1996, Rolf is running together with a jogging group of his sports club. The group met at the parking lot of a swimming pool in the small city of Kelkheim (a suburb of Frankfurt).
During the run he separates from the group at the Viehweide, an inn for wanderers in the forest of the neighbor... keep reading on reddit ➡
I went jogging the other day. When I got to a hill, it was fucking hard work jogging up it. Got to the top and then jogging down the other side was way easier. If gravity doesn't exist, why does density make it hard to jog up hill?
I used to be a avid jogger when living in north brampton (Mclaughlin train tracks held me down)
Now I am in Malton, any places I can go jogging without distractions (I kind of zone out while jogging/running so I just want to find a quiet place.
It's a running joke.
Preferably ones women feel safe on.
I just moved to the area and was wondering if there are any stadiums open to the public to jog up and down. Thank you
I don't exactly see how any of these classes would be done in zoom? Anyone know what this is?
I would like to upgrade my Anker SoundBuds Slim. I have a Samsung Galaxy S10 phone, so I'm leaning towards Samsung products.
I'm going back and forth between the Live and Buds+. I'm in Canada, so the prices are $250 for the Live and $159 (sale) for the Buds+ right now.
My main use would be jogging and putzing around the house. I might need to use them occasionally for MS Teams meetings, phone calls, and if possible cycling.
I usually prefer buds that block sound completely (silicon inserts?), but that prevents me from using them cycling due to safety as I'm often on the road with traffic. Being able to listen to music and be safe while cycling would be a big bonus, but this isn't a deal breaker. My soundbuds slim often shift and have to be adjusted when I'm jogging, but haven't actually fallen out yet. Something that stays in place is a big priority.
So given this info, is there a clear winner between the two? Thanks!
what's the point I be jogging seven miles three times a week for the past four months and I'm on a high protein low-fet diet and somehow I still look like a pregnant man. it seems like all my efforts for nothing and no matter how I change up my diet nothing seems to work or my workout regimen. It's like I'm destined to always have a dad bod and.im on my late 20s
I have three daughters. The oldest and the youngest inherited their mother's metabolism. They can eat a horse and not gain a pound.
My middle daughter, unfortunately, inherited mine. But fortunately weight was never a problem because she's very active and plays sports
Was very active and played sports.
Of course because of this COVID thing she's been inside and I'm starting to notice she's getting a little chubby.
Usually before I leave to go jogging, I ask anybody if they want to come. Of course they don't. But I'm going jogging tomorrow and I'm going to insist my middle daughter goes with me.
My wife says it might make her feel insecure. Might is not a good enough reason for me to not preserve my daughter's health. Plus, I'll be tactful.
“Dr Andrea Charles-Fidelis, has received an apology from Kent Police after she claimed she was racially profiled and threatened with arrest by an officer while out jogging in Swanley, near Sevenoaks in March.”
Just wanted to say it out loud! I want to go slooooow. To make it round. It will be my furthest distance for a considerable amount of time. Any advice on how to stay slow and steady and not give up (usually my internal pressure prevents me from stopping but any other ideas welcome). Any advice at all would be welcomed... Actually, I take my phone but how else do people stay safe while out jogging late or early or in remote places?
My list so far (in general... Not for safety):
hydrate before but not so much that I need a wee.
Go to the loo before setting off! 😂
Assuming I have middle school cross country I have a question. I do summer running with my schools high schoolers and am used to running around the 40-50 minute range and I will be starting Practice for my middle school at the end of August assuming school starts then and our coach will probably have us be doing 10-15 minute jogs during the first 1-2 weeks and I don’t want to lose progress. Do you guys have any recommendations of the best way to still gain progress despite having to do easier stuff?
I had been in a bit of a workout rut for a while and just was beginning to pick up steam again at the gym when that all was thrown out of loop (due to a global issue all of us is familiar with). At that point I generally balanced cardio and some lifting mostly and had been planning on training for a 5K as my running had slipped and I'd wanted to get back to where I was a couple of years ago, able to run 45 mins without stopping.
About six weeks ago, I picked up yoga again after roughly 15 years; I loved it so much before but stopped and did other things before letting fitness fall to the side. I have not been lifting in months and was just doing various cardio things at home, but I've rediscovered my love of yoga and have been focusing on that and supplementing with different cardio things (a jog, HIIT workout, or other things like a cardio pilates routine). On weekends I usually go for jogs, but it's now hard for me to jog during the week as 1) gym no longer available and 2) when... keep reading on reddit ➡
I know it's best to focus on time for now, but I really feel like I should be speeding up here. It's taking me 25 minutes to do 2.5km !
Should I be concerned about my pace or just focus on finishing the last week and getting up to 30 minutes? At this speed I feel like I'd end needing 50 minutes or more to do a 5k, and at that point I might as well walk.
I’m new to running, I’m on week 4 of the C25K app and am having a blast. One thing I’m contending with though is this weird feeling of...self consciousness? I don’t know how else to describe it, but it comes from this:
In my whole life, having seen hundreds of people jogging - sidewalks, parks, my neighborhood, the city, etc - I feel like I’ve never seen anyone stop jogging and go to a walk. Obviously they do so eventually, lol, but I see them jogging, they pass me, and they’re still going.
Here’s where I feel weird: I know I’m a beginner, I know I’m building up my endurance, I know people train in different ways. But I only jog a few minutes before I have to go to a walk for a few seconds, and then start up again. I follow the app’s cycles of course, and I usually poop out before the full jog cycle is done but just barely push myself to finish, take the walk break, and keep going.
But I feel self conscious when I’m around people outside and I break back into a walk for a minute... keep reading on reddit ➡
Let me confess a few things first. I don't take rest days.
Exercise isn't new to me and I was jumping rope very intensely for 1hr a day before I discovered the wonderful world of slow jogging. I had been jumping rope 5yrs and it had become stale and slow jogging was a welcome change. I enjoyed it so much I have slowly transitioned to 7 days a week slow jogging with 5-8miles each session.
Just recently it's become harder to jog consistently at a steady manageable comfortable pace and I feel slower than usual. The slow jogging is far less intense than jump rope so I can't think that I am tired or burnt out (that said I would jump rope an hour very hard where as slow jogging is sometimes 90mins so a lot longer)
Has this happened to anyone else and do you know what may cause it?
My diet hasn't changed and the only thing I can think... keep reading on reddit ➡
