Running to Lose Weight
A women’s fitness magazine Women’s Running brings to light the many benefits of running that most of us may have been aware of all along but chose not to acknowledge, or have simply ignored. I am one of those people who have been to the gym on and off, tried all sorts of keep trim regimes but never really considered running as an option.
As I read through this magazine, I became more aware that the benefits of running as a weight option are endless, the obvious being the weight loss. We are told you expend a good 10-15 calories a minute – by the average person’s standards that is a great deal. I also read that your waistline gets trimmer and you lose body fat.
In this age of too many pressures, a good run enables you to unwind and relax. I realize that running can be a great way to deal with a number of issues in our lives; losing weight, flattening the tummy, toning up muscles, being more relaxed and above all, it is a less expensive way of keeping fit and convenient, too. In terms of time management, I think I can squeeze in an early morning run. What a great way to start the day.
