Researchers have found that brisk walking is just as good for the heart as running can be, it can also help back pain as a low impact form of exercise.
It can also lower the risk of high blood pressure cholesterol and diabetes.
They have estimated that a person would need to walk for three miles at a brisk pace to have the same amount of energy as running three miles, taking around an hour and 15 minutes instead of 38 minutes.
