    Just not in to jogging. Did a lot of chronic cardio as a teen & 20 something, really love the primal approach of just walking, lifting weights & springing once in a while. I did some Crossfit type stuff last year 4-6 days a week for a few months, just totally wore me out.

    All about context. I happen to know individuals for whom a walk to their mailbox and back is a high intensity interval session.

    Some days just call for a good run! I've been running semi-regularly since I was 18 (now 44), and like to jog 2 or 3 times a week. I am not training for anything, I don't track distance, or pace, or calorie burn. I especially like to run on trails in the woods. For me, it is fun, and rather therapeutic. In my late 30s I got really into racing, and did well, but burned myself out with tempo runs, and speed work, and 7:00 min/miles. Now, if I feel like a jog, I lace up and go. Sometimes it turns into a walk, other days, my walk becomes a run. I don't force it if I don't feel like it. Running through the woods on a cool spring morning = play for me, and that's primal!

    The problem I see isn't with the running itself, but how its implemented in peoples lives. All to often people have an all or nothing attitude with their health and wellness. If you can go for a run, and its fun, no fretting if your h/r is in some mythical fat burning zone, and you don't worry about times. I believe its healthy.
    In my opinion chronic cardio is when you have a list of details about your runs and you start beating yourself up about said details. If you have a list of health problems due to your exercise habits you be be a chronic cardio candidate. That being said, you can take anything to far.

    Also wanted to say to Mr. Kavadlo, I love your videos and show them often to people as an example of what the Human body is capable of, if trained properly.

    This sums it up pretty well. The spectrum of fitness is just too big for generalizations. I liked the article though.

    True neck, sometimes I'm that person.

    I like jogging, whenever I decide to just go out for a walk to enjoy nature I get bored and tired until I break out into a jog; even tho I had no intention of running that day. It even happened this AM. I just can't take walking for exercise, I'm impatient I guess?
