This may be a stupid question but its kind of bugging me and I'd like some opinions/answers on it. If I run and burn 500 calories does it equal me walking and burning 500 calories. One would immediately say yes, but when I run, my heart rate is higher and I sweat a whole lot more than walking. I also feel like I get a better workout in. Endurance wise, I know I may not be getting the same training, but am I getting the same cardiovascular workout? I ask this because I recently had an injury and I've been walking at a pretty fast pace for a longer period of time, say 80 minutes, as opposed to running for 60 minutes, for recovery purposed.
If the same amount of distance is achieved and calories burned, will it give my body the same workout?
