# What does it mean to run 2 miles per hour

## How Much Weight Can You Lose Five Miles a Week?

For five miles five days a week, walking is a lot of the time, but the payoffs can be huge if you build a lifelong habit. In fact, a 35-minute walk for 15 years "saved a 160-pound person about 18 pounds of flab," according to Harvard Men's Health Watch. The well-known sports expert Dr. Kenneth Cooper recommends running three miles a day four times a week. Walking fast burns more calories than walking slowly. You lose 1 pound when you burn 3,500 calories.

### Walk 2 km / h

Losing weight by walking 2 miles per hour is very time consuming because you will only burn 252 calories per hour if you weigh 200 pounds. and 190 calories an hour when you are 150 pounds, according to "The Complete Guide to Walking". That means it takes about 14 hours to lose pounds when you're 200 pounds. and about 18 hours if you are 150 pounds. A 5 mile walk at 2 km / h takes 2 1/2 hours, so if you weigh 200 kg you will burn 630 calories. and 475 calories when you're 150. A 200-lb. A person who walks five miles at two kilometers an hour five days a week burns 3,150 calories, or just under 1 pound. A 150 pound pound. A person with the same walking routine burns 2,375 calories, or roughly two-thirds of a pound.

### Walk 3 km / h

Running faster will burn more calories because you will need more energy when you exert yourself. Walking 3 miles an hour burns 344 calories an hour when you are 200 pounds. and 258 calories when you're 150, according to "Walking". A five mile walk at three miles per hour takes 100 minutes. Five five mile walks take 500 minutes or 8 1/3 hours. Hence a 200-lb. A person who walks 3 miles an hour and burns 344 calories an hour burns about 2900 calories, or about five sixths of a pound, every week.

### Go 4 km / h

People who walk 4 miles per hour will walk 40 miles per week in half the time of people who walk 2 miles per hour. You also burn around twice as many calories per hour. A 175-lb. Person burns 436 calories for one hour at 4 miles per hour and 220 calories for one hour at 2 miles per hour, according to "walking". A 40-kilometer walk takes 6 1/4 hours and burns 2,725 calories, or about three quarters of a pound, every week

### Walk 5 km / h

The difference in weight loss between 5 miles per hour and 4 miles per hour is greater than the difference between 4 miles per hour and 2 miles per hour. This is because the "regular running speed limit" is 4.5 mph, and you will need to change your running technique to run faster. Essentially, you have to work a lot harder by flexing your arms more, lengthening your stride, and taking faster steps. At 5 mph, you will burn 616 calories if you weigh 200 pounds. and 462 calories when you're 150. If you walk five days a week you will burn 3,080 calories if you weigh 200 pounds. and 2,310 calories when you are 150 pounds.
