What Running Can Do For You
In my area as you drive to work you see a lot of people
running. Most everybody thinks this is a difficult
task. Something that is difficult to get accustomed to.
But like everything else if you make up your mind to do
it, it can soon become a habit. The benefits of this
aerobic exercise are tremendous. Running is a great way
to get rid of stress. Many people that suffer from
depression find that running is real way to obtain
relief. But I guess most of us run to stay physically
fit by improving our cardiac function and of course
keeping those pounds off.
There are, of course, many ways to stay fit, but few
will burn more calories as fast or improve your
endurance. It can be fun too. Once you start running
regularly you become one of the people that is known as
a runner. Soon you make friends with other people that
also run consistently. Great friendships are developed
this way. It helps you with your mental health that
most of us ignore. Being sociable and having friends is
a real benefit for the soul and a great cure for
depression and loneliness.
Your next question is how do I get started. It is not
difficult. The first week or two you probably just need
to walk for about thirty minutes. Then once that starts
to feel good, and it will, then you can slowly start to
walk and jog. This is the best way to get started.
After a while you cannot help but be running. You start
getting that second wind and you do get a high out of
it but is a good healthy high.
Many people soon start joining jogging teams to help
charities raise money for their community. This gives
you a real sense of pride knowing that you are doing
something important. It is good for that self image.
And with your fit lean body, and healthy looks you have
a real sense of confidence. So this is aerobics at its
One of the things you need to consider is get a good
pair of running shoes. You can get all kinds of advise
about shoes on the internet or by visiting your
Sporting Goods Store.
Start Running for your life!
