Running/Walking and calories burnt

There always seems to be great discussions on wether you burn more calories walking or running.

Well I have done my own little experiment

I run 4 miles in 46 mins and burn 593 calories.

I walk 4 miles in 57 mins and burn 371 calories.

So I would have to walk around 6 or 7 miles to burn the same kind of calories that I do when running 4 miles  🙁

As usual its all about time !

    Interesting post.
    From the above when running you are burning double the calories per minute of activity. That is:
    Running is 12.9 calories per minute.
    Walking is 6.5 calories per minute
