Run, the benefits of the ‘medicine’ that keeps us in shape
The first results of running are seen after four weeks of constant practice. Recovery of physical form can only be achieved through running. People do not run to increase appetite, but to digest it. Those who run every day know all too well what this means. But very soon even the lazy will learn, who have just returned from vacation and to lose the extra pounds they have gained during those days, they will have to run in parks or streets like the athletes Bolt and Bekele. They think that 10 minutes of walking a day is a bonus to lose weight or that walking in the middle of the heat and sweating are synonymous with slimming down. Although lazy people do not prefer it, running is beautiful and healthy, it is enough to know how to do it. Unlike all other sports, it is the easiest to learn.
When should we run?
With the exception of lunch hours, any moment of the day is suitable for jogging. The important thing is to run. Morning run is more advisable, because we are less likely to inhale smog. Going out to dinner helps to relieve the nerves and stress accumulated during the day at work. So the advice given by the experts is, run when you have time, although the most advisable is the morning run. “You can run as soon as you get out of bed without brushing your teeth and face. An oxygen shower early in the morning helps you face the rest of the day with clarity. Running on an empty stomach helps the body burn fat more easily. Running should become a trend. It is important not to neglect. You should not overdo it, but gradually increase the minutes of running. By getting used to this pace, you can be sure that you will not feel tired. To begin with, you should simply try alternating minutes of jogging with minutes of brisk walking. You can run three times a week for 30 minutes,” says an athlete.
Where should we run?
The beauty of running is that it can be done anywhere: no fields, no gyms, no swimming pools are needed. If you have to choose, then avoid asphalt and especially cement: at first you can be elastic like a bowling ball, every step is a blow, which from the feet moves to the ankles, knees and hips. A park, or a paved road, is ideal for jogging. But be careful of the obstacles, because when you are tired you may stumble on a root and the fall may have serious consequences. You also don’t have to be hard on yourself: running in nature among the trees is more beautiful than running around a parking lot. The legs will feel the same fatigue, but the head will be “happier”.
How far should we run?
At first you don’t have to strain. Alternate running with brisk walking and take a rest day after each run. If you want to challenge yourself, then try to run one minute longer than run the same route one minute less. It is important not to neglect it, especially if you have set yourself the goal of losing weight. A person who runs and does no other activity burns a significant amount of fat. If you want to feel in great shape and maintain your body lines, then don’t separate running, but make it a part of your daily life.
Why should we run?
This question usually remains unanswered: people run because they want to, then the reasons don’t matter, whatever they were that prompted you to take this step. After the first few weeks, which are a bit arduous, the motivations for running are all contained within it: we want to see if we can run for an hour without stopping; can we make it to the top of that downhill, can we cover ten kilometers in forty minutes, etc. Be sure that there will always be someone, your spouse, your fiancé, your work colleagues, who will constantly bother you with their curious questions. Don’t listen to them, because they can’t understand you, and what’s more important, at the top of the slope they will never climb.
