"The trouble with jogging is that, by the time you realize you're not in shape for it, it's too far to walk back."

Two Forms of Exercise:
Biking or Running

Both types of exercise are popular and for some they do only one of them for their workout period.  Or maybe it could be spinning compared to running or walking - the choice is yours.  

Hirofumi Tanaka, a professor of kinesiology and director of the Cardiovascular Ageing Research Laboratory at the University of Texas in Austin says "Both are rhythmic aerobic activities that involve large muscle mass."  Dr. Tanaka states the difference is that running burns more calories per minute than cycling but the a downside of running is that it causes more injuries than cycling.  Cycling is a non-weight bearing activity, so it is better for your knees and joints. All of these exercises are basically aerobic in nature and the greater aerobic fitness will help reduce the risk of chronic disease and aid in obtaining a longer life span.

Which type is better for you?  If you do any exercise day after day you'll soon tire of it. Like most exercise, you should vary aerobic exercises as well as strength training workouts.

As you get more proficient in any form of exercise, by increasing the intensity of the workout you'll get more benefits for the time spent exercising.  Start with an intensity and length of workout that is comfortable for you and progress by varying the exercises to keep your interest and performance from stagnating!
