Think Miles, Not Minutes
Headed out for a run? Aim for a specific distance rather than a length of time to make sure you do not shortchange your workout. Consider this, if you walk or run 30 minutes a day an increase to 60 minutes a day, you may gain a couple pounds. On the other hand, if you have a daily distance goal, you are likely to lose a few pounds. People tend to inadvertently overestimate they time they actually spend exercising. Distance on the other hand is nonnegotiable. So get the full body benefits.
