(The Independent) – Years of running too long and too far could be as bad for you as doing nothing at all, a study has suggested.

Scientists have claimed “light” joggers who run for just one to 2.4 hours a week – and no more than three times a week – have the highest life expectancy rates.

Researchers tracked the progress of 1,098 healthy joggers and 413 healthy but sedentary non-joggers for 12 years.

The findings of the study, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, found the life expectancy of heavy-duty joggers was as low as those who did no jogging at all.

The study also found significantly lower mortality rates among those who adopted a slow, or moderate jogging pace, while those who ran at a fast pace again had a similar rate as sedentary non-joggers.
