estimate the number of calories you've burned using the
calculator for your last run,
body weight, the miles you've run and the calculator will tell
many calories you've burned.
number of course is just an estimate based on running on a flat even
surface with no head wind or tail wind, and no hills.
number of calories burned during a run is based on the distance, not
the speed. In fact, if your goal is weight loss, you may burn more
calories by taking a slower long
run, than a fast shorter run. If you are training for a run you may use
this as a guide for appropriate calorie intake.
important part of
training in order to prepare a runner to perform their best during a
competition. However long the distance is, nutrition will optimize
conditions for the runner when facing the starting line. Eating habits
must be such that the runner will be supplied with fuel and
nutrients required to optimize performance during training session and
also allow a quick recovery afterwards. The runner requires unique
strategies of fluid and food intake for before a run, during
after a run to reduce fatigue and enhance performance. These
strategies are also important in a competition and must be fine tuned
Running iand walking is by far the easiest form of exercise there is.
It can be done almost anywhere and no special instruction is required.
The amount of calories you burn is directly proportional to your
weight. (it takes more calories to move the extra weight) Men burn on
average 26 calories per mile run, women burn approximately 105 calories
per mile run.
Everyone is different; hence formulas are not 100 percent accurate.
Different bodies react differently to exercise, have differing
efficiencies, so some people will burn more calories running than
others. People who have run for many years will naturally be more
mechanically effient than those just starting out. A 180 lb male with
10 percent body fat will burn more calories than a 180lb male with 20
percent body fat given the same level of training. (muscle burns more
calories than fat)
should always strive
to maintain a healthy weight to minimize stress on joints. Realistic
goals are specific for each individual must be determined by their
health care professional. The Running Calorie Calculator can help.
