Walk, Jog and Run!

Updated on December 18, 2012

Brisk walking, Jogging and Running

I used to jog in the early morn during my college days. I also combined brisk walking and running short distances. With those three, I can feel that my body inside and out are burning unnecessary fats. I used to feel lightness and can move quickly after I took a shower and ate a hearty breakfast.

Walking is one of the best things you can do for your health. It's good for your heart, blood pressure and weight management. When you're walking to get or stay fit, your form, pace, and breathing is especially important. Mastering a good walking technique takes some time. But with practice, it will become second nature and will help you increase and maintain your pace comfortably.

Jogging is a form of trotting or running at a slow or leisurely pace. The main intention is to increase fitness with less stress on the body than from faster running.

Running uses more energy than walking to travel the same distance. Therefore, running is less efficient than walking in terms of calories expended per unit distance, though it is faster.

After stretching as warm-up, I always mix these three in order to maximize the hours I'll be spending in order to condition my body before or after work.

You can choose your time and place for your personal workout. It can be at the park in the early morn or late afternoon. Doing the exercises along the shore of the beach near you can be awesome along with your pet dog.

Benefits of Walking, Jogging and Running

There are different body types. You can call it, small, medium and large.

For each body type, medical experts or doctors advise each one of us to execute such exercises in different length of time.

For example, a 15-minute of brisk walking can mobilize your body and burn excessive fats in just short a time.

Jogging for 30 minutes or half-an-hour can energize your entire body and excrete any toxins that can harm your physique. For example, if you want to get sober after a last night's drinking bout, you should re-energize your body through jogging. Drink lots of water while doing it to replace the lost liquids from your body.

Running is for competitive person.

Last 2011, my activities, aside from hubbing, included participating at series of marathon and fun run in Metro Manila. First, in the 5-K marathon sponsored by a local credit cooperative and the other one was the national fun-run geared for the rehab of the Pasig River.

The benefits, of course, with the right kind and amount of nutritious food will prevent you from getting sick.

You will always feel invigorated or renewed each time you finish brisk walking, then jogging and last running.

You may take a quick hot shower as your skin pores are still open and will wash away all the dirt from your body.

There, you'll be a new person even if you are an office worker, an executive officer or an ordinary person.

It's good to start your day doing such rudiments of exercises.

      At your age, you should start building your muscles through jogging or brisk walking or running.
