STUDY: When it comes to breast cancer survival, running is better than walking:

Enter Paul Williams, Ph.D., the prolific researcher who maintains the databases for the National Runners Health Study and the National Walkers Health Study. Williams has just published his latest report in the International Journal of Cancer. It compares breast cancer survival rates between runners and walkers. Runners are considered vigorous exercisers because they produce greater than 6 METs/hour, while walkers are in the moderate zone, usually at 3-5 METs/hour. METs are a measure of energy expenditure favored by Williams and other researchers because they allow comparisons among many activities. METs/hour is greater for running than walking because most runners, even slow runners, maintain a pace of 12:00 minutes per mile, or faster. Most walkers use a pace of 17:00 to 20:00 minutes per mile, or slower.
