If you run the right way you can go a long way and be fit and healthy. Working out is not only about going an extra mile but doing the job right.
Here are some memorable running tips, gleaned from experts past and present. If you follow these you are sure to be fitess and smart in no time.
1. Accept the challenge:
Everyone is a sportsperson. But some of us are working out, and some of us are not.
2. Shoot for this (at least):
Running 8 to 15 miles per week considerably increases your working out capacity, and certainly affects many of the coronary risk factors.
3. For fitness be a minuteman:
The mistake that new runners make is that they tend to think in mile increments. Beginning runners need to think in minutes, not miles for better working out techniques.
4. Wear good running shoes:
A good pair of running shoes should last you 400 to 500 miles and is one of the most critical purchases you will make to the road to fitness.
5. Think big (and wide):
Buy all shoes, street and running, a little longer and wider than your bigger foot. Also, avoid pointed shoes. You’ll save yourself unneeded foot pain.
6. Take the "talk test":
For fitness the ‘talk test’ means running at a speed comfortable enough to converse with a training partner but not so easy that you could hit the high notes in an Italian opera.
7. Listen to the rumbling:
If you think of eating, eat. Let your body tell you what it needs. For fitness that’s important.
8. Relax to the max:
When running, let your jaw fall loose, don’t bunch up your shoulders close to your ears, and occasionally shake out your hands and arms to stay calm that important when working out.
9. Don’t crush the egg:
Don’t tighten your fists in a white-knuckle grip. Instead, run with a cupped hand, thumbs resting on the fingers, as if you were protecting an egg in each palm.
10. Make time for a quickie:
If 15 minutes is all the time you have for working out, you still run. For fitness fifteen minutes of running is better than not running at all.
if you run the right way you can go a long way and be fit and healthy. Working out is not only about going an extra mile but doing the job right.
