Running? Walking? They’re both great?

Lots of mentions of this article today about the same study being used say that running is better than walking and vice versa. Interesting article but it, and the commentary on it I've been seeing around the web, seem to ignore the fact that running has a much larger impact on the body than walking does in the overall health, a larger detrimental impact. The article mentions the increase in problems with the feet and legs but seems to kind of brush that aside. Years of running killed my knees and I can't do it anymore. Knowing that I can get the same overall benefits from walking, even if it's for a longer period of time, is great to know. No, I won't get the same cardiovascular endurance but I'll still be able to move 😉
