I've used a calorie calculator some time ago that had two different options for running.
- Running (less than 10 minutes)
I can only guess wildly. Maybe because the body burns energy stored in the muscles first and after a certain amount of time the body starts to refill them, which increases the energy needed.
Are there differences in the way the body burns calories after a specific amount of time?
Or asked in another way: Is there a difference between running for 3x10 minutes with pauses in between or running 30 minutes in one go (assuming all other conditions, pace, total distance, etc, the same).
