Calorie burn for runners

When you workout you burn calories, depending on what workout you do can determine how many calories you burn for your effort –

 

Thought about running a 5K?  Most people will burn off between 300 and 400 calories during a 5K regardless if you run it in 4hrs or 15 mins.  The faster you go the sooner you get done!!!

 

here’s a formula to help determine how many calories you burn depending on your speed and weight or “energy expenditure”

Running at 5 mph burns .064 calories per minute per pound of body weight
Running at 6 mph burns .079 calories per minute per pound of body weight
Running at 10 mph burns .10 calories per minute per pound of body weight
Running at 12 mph burns .13 calories per minute per pound of body weight

add weight training to your workouts and you can burn even more!!  Need help with workout ideas let me know, its easy!!
