Running Is A Wonderful Way To Exercise

Updated on June 2, 2017

Running Is Exhilarating

Running To Stay In Shape

Running will help you to stay in shape, and it will also help you to feel great. If you haven’t run before, and you don’t feel up to it, don’t despair, because there’s always hope. First of all, make an appointment at your doctor for a complete medical check-up. After that, you can start slow, and gradually ease yourself into the exhilarating process of running. Step by awesome step. It’s not that difficult !

Running Is Enjoyable

When it comes to running, don’t try to do too much too soon. Rome wasn’t built in a day! Build up to it slowly and steadily. After a warming up session, try running three kilometers everyday for more or less three weeks, and after that, try running five kilometers everyday for more or less three weeks, and so on. It’s not easy, but if you persevere, you will most definitely reap the great benefits, and you may even find to your surprise that you enjoy running.

The Benefits Of Running

Many scientists believe that by doing exercise, some effects of ageing can be reversed. That is such good news! That’s a great incentive to start running.

Running has many more great benefits too :

  • If you run on a regular basis, then you will be doing your body such a huge favour. You will most definitely lose a whole lot of weight.
  • Your risk of heart disease will be lowered
  • Running will help for depression too
  • It will help the heart and lungs to work better
  • It will give your stamina a lovely boost
  • It will help your blood to flow smoothly
  • It will help you to sleep better
  • It’s an excellent stress buster
  • It will help your body to become stronger, and function more efficiently
  • It will rejuvenate your body, your mind and your soul
  • It will reduce cholesterol
  • It will reduce blood pressure

  • Sex will become more enhanced

Persevere And Reap The Benefits

Your Body Needs Time To Adjust

If you run for a couple of kilometers, and you start panting from exertion, and you feel that you can’t go on any longer, then it’s okay to stop running and to start walking, and as soon as you feel ready to start running again, then go for it, and run at a pace you can manage. Running can be strenuous, and your body needs time to adjust, and if you keep at it, then you may find after a couple of weeks that it can be quite stimulating, and you’ll start looking forward to your running sessions. That’s what’s so incredibly wonderful about running.

Run Towards Good Health

Try A Different Route

When running, you may want to try a different route every so often, to banish boredom, and when you’ve been running for a couple of weeks, and your body is used to it, you may want to include a couple of uphills in your running sessions. By doing this, you will become a whole lot fitter, and you will feel so fantastic!

Go Ahead And Make The Effort

A whole lot of personal discipline is needed when it comes to running, and some people need to really motivate themselves into action. But guess what? After action there will be a whole lot of satisfaction! So go ahead, and make the effort, and in a few weeks you will be astounded by how far and how well you can run, and how marvellous it feels. You will feel so victorious and your overall well-being will feel so enhanced, and you will know without a shadow of a doubt, that running is for you.

It's Fun To Run With A Friend

Your First Marathon

You may want to run in the mornings, the afternoons, or the evenings. It’s entirely up to you. Running is fun, and it’s for absolutely everyone. After you’ve been running for a couple of weeks, you may feel that you’re ready for your first Marathon, to test yourself against other runners, or just for the superb love of running. You may just surprise yourself by winning the Marathon!

Enter A Marathon

Get Out There And Run

Running is a wonderful way to exercise. It will restore your vigour, and it will fill you with so much zest, and after you’ve been running for a couple of weeks, you will get so much pleasure out of it, that you will never ever look back. From that moment on, you will start running with a smile on your face and your ecstatic spirit will soar. So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and run!

      I also think that running can be enjoyable. The trick that works for me is to combine running with walking. I do a sort of interval workout, where I run for a few minutes then walk to recuperate. In time I hope to work up to longer running intervals.
