How many calories do I burn running a mile
If you are looking for the answer to the question: how many calories do I burn running a mile or walking or pumping iron, the answer is right here in this image. But in general it’s about .75 x your weight, so if you weigh 100 pounds you will burn about 75 calories running a mile. If you weighed 140 pounds you’d burn about 105 calories running a mile. So if your weight is above or below those listed in this infographic you can use that as a basis to figure out how many calories you would burn.
In addition to this information you will also discover how many calories you need to burn to lose one pound of fat in addition to:
1. How many calories per hour does running, cycling, walking, swimming, aerobics and yoga burn based on body weight
2. How many calories per hour does running, cycling, walking, swimming, aerobics and yoga burn based on intensity
The figures above will be provided based on both body weight and on intensity. Of course, the information is based on averages. The exact number of calories burned will depend on your weight, your height, your age, your gender and even your metabolism because some people burn a lot more than others do.
Another way to get a rough idea of how many calories do I burn running a mile is to use a calorie calculator such as the one at runners world. This one works out the count based on distance (in either miles or km) and weight (pounds, kg or stone). Of course, again it’s just a rough estimate because your figures will differ slightly.
