Running: Distance for HDL and Speed For Blood Pressure

"For men, relative to the benefits of running longer weekly distances, running faster is estimated to have 13.3 times greater impact on lowering systolic blood pressure, 2.8 times greater impact on lowering diastolic blood pressure, and 4.7 times greater impact on narrowing waistlines. For women, running faster as versus running longer is estimated to have 5.7 times greater impact on lowering systolic blood pressure.

Running longer distances, on the other hand, had a more pronounced effect on another coronary heart disease risk factor. Running more miles had an over six-fold stronger effect on raising HDL-cholesterol than did running faster. That was the case for both men and women. Numerous studies show that higher HDL cholesterol levels protect against heart disease."
If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements. Yes, low T and E.D. are usually medical conditions.  There are potential risk with HRT:  http://www.peaktestosterone.com/testosterone_risks.aspx.

Yes as long as you go slowly and stay injury free is what everyone is saying on here.

I can offer you a recent example of the distance/HDL connection, sample size N=1:

Three years ago:  running 30-35 miles a week my HDL was 58

2016:  Mileage dropped to 15 miles a week, my HDL was 46

2017:  Recommitted to 20-25 miles a week, my HDL is back up to 53.
