Benefits of Running

Running is an excellent way to burn calories and enjoy being outdoors. The feeling of running can truly give you a high and make you feel amazing. When running you feel so at one with nature and it truly is a great feeling. Running doesn’t have to be something people dread doing! If you’ve decided to join us on the running side, we’re here to teach you how to slowly break into running and pretty soon you will be running marathons.

Before you start sprinting away, you must remember that in order to start running you must start walking! If you start by running immediately you could end up severely injuring yourself, that is why it’s all about starting slow. For every 5 minutes of walking, run for 1-2 minutes. You’ll slowly bring up your heart rate and get your body used to the pace.

Once you’ve started running, never push yourself, if your body is telling you that it is in pain then listen to it. Don’t over pressure yourself and over do it. Soreness is part of the job but if you’re really feeling pain then give it a break. Continue only if you feel you can. From then on just run straight and keep your elbows tucked and arms relaxed. Don’t run feeling tight or uncomfortable. The point of running is to feel free and enjoy it. Running is amazing at releasing stress and anxiety. It is the perfect time to be alone with your thoughts and to just let go of all the stress of your daily life!
