Who do you think lives longer? The person that runs a 17-minute or less pace or a person that run a mile in over 17 minutes on average? The answer is in the following article:
- For Fitness, Intensity Matters (by Gretchen Reynolds, New York Times)
…more specifically in the following sentence from the article:
…people who walked briskly, at a pace of 17 minutes per mile or less, generally lived longer than those men and women who strolled during their walks, at a pace of 20 minutes per mile or slower, although the study was not designed to determine why the intensity of the exercise mattered.
Be intense, and immerse yourself.
