We all know we should keep ourselves fit, but how to do it? Many spend a small fortune on gymnasiums while others prefer a less costly approach. Walking and jogging are good free options.

Which do you prefer, a vigorous workout or a more peaceful and comfortable jaunt. Walking or jogging?

In an ideal world, I would prefer neither! Dancing is a lot more fun and has more point to it than just randomly walking or jogging.

However, if I had to choose at gunpoint, I would go for walking. Less damage to the knees and shins and more opportunity to enjoy myself and appreciate my suroundings as I go. Plus recent research has shown that what you need for optimum fitness is a fairly brisk 20 minute walk a day, not a heavy workout three times a week.
I can no longer job even if I preferred it.

However, even if I could, I believe it does damage to your back and possibly knees if jogging on a hard surface.

It is probably better to get your heart rate up by jogging as against walking however a brisk walk up hills etc is also good and does less harm on joints.

Walking for me please.
Toooo old for jogging!
Walking as it is better for the knee joints
I don't like jogging; I find it difficult and it seems to sap my energy very quickly. Walking on the other hand is quite enjoyable. I like a stint in the fresh air (I am normally office bound). I love looking at what everyone is doing with their gardens, Nodding to other walkers as they pass by, noticing the birds in the area (uness they are plovers which are a bit inclined to swoop). Definitley walking for me.
Walking - I do a brisk 6km walk every day, sometimes twice a day if I'm in the mood. After my husband died I started walking and found it a good way to deal with my emotions. I ended up losing 16 kgs although that hadn't been the intent, but a great side-effect!
Neither. I use my elliptical machine . . . far less stress on the bones.
