The Short Run versus The Long Run

Video taken from the channel: jodiecongirl

But deciding between going for a long walk versus a short run is more nuanced than just the calories burned. “It depends entirely on the individual,” says Jacque Crockford, certified strength and conditioning specialist and exercise physiology content manager at the California-based American Council on Exercise. The faster you walk (or run), the fewer steps per mile you’ll register. Longer running strides cover more distance. The flipside of this is that you’ll cover much more distance by walking faster, which increases your step count. In terms of your health and fitness, this shouldn’t be a big consideration when comparing running and walking.

While research suggests walking for distance may be the better option, it’s only beneficial so long as it works for you. If you find it easier to track your walks according to time, then, by all means, continue to do so. The chances of wearing out fast are lower when you opt for long walks compared to short runs.

This is because your body uses less energy, and you don’t strain yourself as much. You will find yourself walking for long hours without getting tired. This. If you’re working up to a race, you need to get some running in.

If you’re burning calories and have the time, a longer walk might be a more sustainable routine. As far as. You should run for two minutes and walk for four minutes. For people who can run continuous miles but want to build endurance, 4-to-1 (four minutes running, one minute walking) and 5-to-1 are good.

(For example, if you run 7:00 per mile for 10K and/or 8:00 per mile for the marathon, your long run pace should be roughly between 8:20 and 9:30 minutes per mile.). For a 160-pound person, walking at a brisk, 3.5-mph pace for 30 minutes will burn about 156 calories. But running at a 6-mph pace for that same. The distinction between the short run and the long run in macroeconomics is important because many macroeconomic models conclude that the tools of monetary and fiscal policy have real effects on the economy (i.e. affect production and employment) only in the short run and, in the long run, only affect nominal variables such as prices and nominal interest rates and have no effect on real.

Why a short run is better than a long walk (PhysOrg.com) Using the latest technology, researchers are uncovering evidence of exactly how major a role activity plays in the battle to keep obesity.

It’s preferable to do the second, short run in the evening after a medium-long run in the morning.

If it’s shorter—such as a 10­miler—then you can’t afford to hold back so much; you could still hold back for the first 2 minutes of the effort, however.

You could do what you like, go where you wanted to, as long as you prepared your solution to the exercise and returned it by the due date.

For the other four situations, the only one in which the run expectancy drops significantly is when there are runners on second and third, while the other three leave the run expectancy largely unchanged.

I have spoken to distance runners who, as exhaustion approaches, pick their stopping places a mile in advance with the rule that any place more distant can be picked at any time before they reach the current target, and once picked even by the most fleeting resolve it becomes controlling.

If all of the runs performed well (variance notwithstanding) and if the absolute worst start date still did pretty well, I would at the very least, continue to work on this strategy and possibly still consider using it.

  • I agree, I started introducing walk breaks into my long runs in preparation for a 100 miler. You teach your body to adapt to walking to save energy. At the end of the long run my average pace is faster than when I don’t take any walk breaks.

  • Thanks! Very clear and understandable explanation of short run and long run. The textbook gave me about a line on each and it is not enough for me to understand! Subscribed:)

  • THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! it’s my exam tomorrow and i’m still struggling with PC graph, I’ve been asking around but it makes me more confused & i’ve been cursing all the lines and curve since morning, & I’ve seen diff lessons of eco online until i clicked this video of yours. You just don’t know how you’ve help me…you’re a life saviour!!! CHEERS!!!

  • Continuous EZ running is better than moderate intensity intervals for fat burning according to: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18379212

  • I have been searching far and wide and this is the closest I have come to clearly understanding the difference between Short-Run & Long-Run. What did it for me was the explanation of the Short-Run with regards to the example of the firm having a fixed cost/sunk cost of a lease, BUT, what I don’t quite understand is in the Short-Run, why the firm shuts down if P

  • Ive been doing heaps of long slow walks and swimming since rehab on my broken ankle and torn ligament
    Yesterday i was finally ready physically and mentally to test my ankle
    I ran my second fastest 5 k ever with still plenty left
    I hit the 5k finish at good pace and could have kept going
    Lungs and joints felt great

  • You’re so awesome, and your teaching is super clear. Thank you very much for the enlightenment! I understand this concept now thanks to you:)

  • It is because the fixed costs are paid no matter what. Therefore the firm only looks at the variable costs when trying to determine whether or not to shut down. Ex. if fixed cost is 5 dollars, variable cost is 3 dollars, and profit is 7 dollars, the firm would not shut down because P>AVC. The firm has to pay the 5 dollars anyway because it is a sunk cost, so they are only losing a dollar because ATC is 8 dollars. If they shut down, they lose 5 dollars because of the fixed cost.

  • this is just brilliant! THANKYOU so much. everything makes so much sense, never listened in the lectures phaha. love your videos.

  • Hey, is that Ted?
    Yeah. That’s him
    Oh. I hope he needs to take a long walk off a short pier
    Why? That’s not nice
    He sold me fake weed:))

  • Ok, so I don’t post very often, but I could not resist this time. This is an amazing lesson, extremely informative and easy to understand, I dare to say this was much better than the Intro to Economics by Lipsey, 2015! Dear Author, please, continue doing a great job and keep educating us. Well done.

  • Suggestion for u. If u r using premere and auditions, open clip in auditions select the background noise part then go to adaptive noise remover. That should remove most of the background static.

  • So I get why the price will return to the original equilibrium, but what about the increase in quantity, will that not affect profits? Or is it because that Q=ATC, so that there will be no economic profits?

  • What is with all the spammy post crap on here. I was keen to earn cash on the internet. And I did not have faith in nearly anything. The thing that solved the problem was being able to view evidence of cash flow. I uncovered it on the Zutore Cash System site (Google it) and I started earning money online from that.

  • But in reality there is not a single perfectly competitive market in the world. So in the long run there can be economic profit/loss

  • Please wear a mask, winter jacket, and use a voice synthesizer. I find that I have to watch your videos 3 or 4 times because I start thinking about your curves. However, they are very helpful if I can turn my inner man off and focus. It is your videos that are getting me through my classes. My professor is nice but she loses her train of thought all of the time and is hard to follow. Thank you very much! Oh and BTW, I want to marry you. Haha lol!! No serious!!!

  • Thanks for this video! I’m running to lose weight and have been trying to eliminate walk breaks, but sometimes on hills I’m just DYING.

  • I started watching you three days ago I think and your videos are awesome and very easy to remember the expressions by days and forever

  • Hi, thank you for your vid. I dont understand why the firms enter and exit the industry can lead to a point at which P=ATC cuz I thought that, for example, at the beginning, demand’s up, price is up which result in the positive economic profit, then more firms enter the market, supply goes up and its curve is shifted to the right, price goes down, and it can be down to the point lower than Pe, or well above or a bit above Pe (Pe in your video), so it can still generate economics profit, but you said in your video that it will go back to the point where it starts (at which economic profit is 0). Also, why did you draw ATC touch P from the begining? Thank you so much!

  • Very nice service to humanity, ur lectures r being watched in whole world..can u please give the proper order to understand whole economics from ur all videos? which videos to watch first n all? Are all lessons covered by u?

  • It was amazing. Since past two hours am searching about short run and long run on internet but finally i got this video and now am in a state to explain it to others.

  • Suppose you are considering growing and selling maize and you are operating within a competitive market with no influence over price. Assume the current price of maize $70 per 100 kg and the short run cost function, where Q represents bags of maize per year is:
    TC = 800 + 16Q + Q2
    What is the profit maximizing output?
    Calculate the profit for the output you got in (a) above?
    Based on the rule that a firm should produce only if it covers its variable costs of production, what quantity should be produced to cover variable costs?
    How much are the fixed costs of this business?

  • Thank you sir, people like should live forever:-)! I want to complete microeconomics please suggest me how do I go through your videos sequentially?

  • even if you say this expression is not nice it’s much more nice than some other expressions with the same meaning I won’t say here

  • if you want a more animated host then go see fucking J Leno bitch or better yet you make a video.Some people are actually trying to learn here.

  • Thank you for the videos! Can you please clear something up for me on the last example where the MR is lower than the ATC, at 18:10 you mention that at each unit of output that they produce and sell, they are selling it less then it cost to produce, but I was under the impression that when the AVC is lower then MR in this example, that they are still covering the cost to produce. Can you please clarify this for me?

  • thank u sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I always follow your videos and thses are veryyyyy helpful! thank u soooooo mmcuh one’s again

  • Can someone please explain this to me?
    In the long run, economic profit for firms (assuming they are identical) will reach 0. However, I don’t understand why P=ATC in the long run because if that is the case, the firms are making 0 accounting profit. Accounting profit and economic profit are 2 entirely different concepts, isn’t she confusing the two?

  • Maybe Jesus took a long walk off a short pier.
    Imaging being Jesus is actually awesome.
    maybe i will be thankful for that person who says to me.
    Thanks for the awesome expression.

  • excellent videos ive watched all your videos on markets and I understand all now aswel as the cost curves thank u:) hopefully I will get a first in micro this semester!

  • Thank you sir for the those presentation, I really like it, I wish that you were my lecture here in the Solomon, I hope to learn more  from your lecture

  • At 4:15 is it true that Qef is identical for all firms in the same market or can’t some firms have different MC curves leading to different Qef locations, in which case the equation at the bottom at 4:23 would have to be a vector sum rather than a product of constants?

  • Hello Jason Welker! Great video! Could you let me know what software/hardware you are using to produce these videos? The writable grid, both freehand and tools? I would like to upload some math videos and this would be brilliant. Thanks!

  • I started implementing the walk run method by ” Jef Galloway” and it works. The key is to increase your jogs distance every week until you reach your goals.

  • The best econ lecture on YouTube.

    I have watched numerous online lectures on various portal sites, but this channel is the best one.
    Hope to see more videos for Econ.
