|Best Way to Run to Lose Weight|
Consider Your Pace and Duration
A 190-pound person burns about 513 calories in a 30-minute run at 7 mph, according to ExRx.net. Although the same person would burn significantly fewer calories running at 5 mph for 30 minutes, this person might be able to sustain a pace of 5 mph for 60 minutes, as the slower pace isn't as strenuous. During an hour-long run at 5 mph, the person would burn about 688 calories, resulting in more calories burned despite running at a slower pace. Given the considerable impact of running, it's better to walk if you'd otherwise run at a pace slower than 6 mph.
