|Research says that running doesn't destroy your joints
During a clinic on his research finding, Dr. Ralph Paffenbarger stated that "For every hour you exercise, you should receive two hours added to your lifespan."
It's my opinion, and that of many medical experts, that most people will maintain their cardiovascular system better and suffer less joint damage by regularly and gently running and walking.
But those that choose to push into speed work and run too much or too fast for their current ability can cause orthopedic problems.
