Did you really think it’s that easy  to burn off 800 calories ?!?

While some elite athletes can do it, for most of us it would take at least an hour or two of moderate exercise.

Here’s what you can burn in half an hour of various sports activities:

  • Running an 8 minute mile will burn about 400-450 calories.
  • Running faster, at 6 minutes per mile will burn around 600 calories!
  • Swimming – 250-350 calories
  • Biking – 200-400 calories

How are you going to burn some calories this weekend?

    The first bullet can easily be misread to mean “a single 8 minute mile burns ~400 calories.” Might be worth editing.

    Stepping out for some exercise now. Have a great weekend!

      Yes, that is how I interpreted it as well, though I know it’s untrue. Adding “at the pace of” would surely clarify it.

    What you eat matters. More satisfying foods satisfy you with less calories.

  • Ruby

    Dang, tricked again! I change my workouts every day(I don’t do weekends;-)) so that I bike on Mon and Wed and do step aerobics on Tue and just walk about 2 miles on Thu.
