15 reasons why you start running today (1/2)

15 reasons why you start running todayRunning is one of the best workouts to lose weight due to the high percentage of calories expended. But beyond this, there are more reasons why you should start running. Here I leave the first delivery of 30 reasons to start today in the world of running:

  1. Running anywhere

From a static tape to the park, running can be done anywhere. Even better, take your sneakers the next vacation and explore the place doing running.

  1. You make new friends

Tired of the same faces in the same bar as always? Check out local running groups or other online sites, where they care about health.

  1. Save yourself money

Forget about having the luxury equipment or paying a gym monthly. When it comes to running, all you need to do is buy shoes.

  1. Fewer doctor visits

Not only does eating well keep you away from the doctor. People active in sports are less likely to develop colon cancer. And women who practice running regularly reduce the risk of breast cancer by up to 30 percent.

  1. Eat more carbohydrates

Who does not like pasta? Now you have the perfect excuse to eat more spaghetti or macaroni. During an intense workout such as in preparation for a marathon, the increase in carbohydrate intake will help you increase performance and mood in the race.

  1. 15 reasons why you start running todayMake it interesting

Forget about always following the same route and the same intensity. Intensity interval training accelerates metabolism and cardiovascular fitness. Research shows that runners who do intervals have more fun while running and are more likely to maintain a steady pace.

Do you still have excuses not to run? Runners who run outdoors, in the mountain, for example, show an increase in self-esteem after training. While they run locked in city or gym, do not have this higher self-esteem.

  1. Live more

Who does not want to live forever? Not only is it healthier but it also increases the years of life compared to sedentary people.

  1. Go back to the past.

Our antecedents passed more and better than us because they had to follow their prey through long distances to get food.

  1. Go back to wearing tight jeans

Running is one of the best calorie burners that exist. For a person of about 70 kilos can burn more than 850 calories per hour.

  1. Improved mood

Not only do you get confidence in yourself when achieving the proposed objectives, but the regular exercise achieves a more cheerful and more positive mood.

  1. Memory Reinforcement

Exercise has been shown to help keep the mind alive and even reduce the symptoms of dementia. There are also studies that say that running protects against Alzheimer’s disease, even among people with a family history.

  1. Better body

A better physical condition is achieved, and the body is molded. It also gives better flexibility in all the muscles of the body.

  1. Get a natural glow

Believe it or not, sweat releases the face of dirt that clog pores and leads to acne breakouts. It can also increase the natural oils, keep the body fresh and healthy.

  1. Improve self-esteem

Do you still have excuses not to run? Runners who run outdoors, in the mountain, for example, show an increase in self-esteem after training. While they run locked in city or gym, do not have this higher self-esteem.

  1. Maintain balance

From a static tape to the park, running can be done anywhere. Even better, take your sneakers the next vacation and explore the place doing running.
