Start running!

Running may seem like a daunting workout but you don’t have to be a tried athlete to incorporate running into your weekly workout routine.

People have said running not only improve physical health and stamina, but once you become a runner your outlook on life changes and healthy choices will come naturally. went to the annual Bay to Breakers 12k race that takes place in San Francisco and saw that running may truly be the key to happiness.

If you want to start running, here are some tips:

Start of slowly. Begin with the walk-run regimen that begins with running for 30 seconds then walking for 30 seconds. Update your run-walk interval each week by increasing your running period while decreasing the walking period.

Listen to your body.  If you experience sharp pains, numbness or inflammations stop immediately.

Don’t sprint.  If you can’t talk while you run or if you’re huffing and puffing, you’re running way too fast.

Eat simple carbs before running.  For muscle fuel, eat carbohydrates but not too much.  And eating protein after a run can help in muscle repair.

Rehydrate.  Drink before you’re thirsty, about every 10 minutes during your workout.

Besides following these steps, we stress the importance of a proper running outfit.  You should have shoes designed for running and a supportive sports bra.  Don’t sacrifice style when working out.

Thanks for watching Health on
