Running really depends on my mood. I have read though that experts suggest jogging or fast running is better for the body since it puts less stress on the legs and knees. It also burns around the same amount of calories. I think both worlds are just as good. Nice article!
I'm about to start running, despite the advice of some well-meaning friends who keep telling me to keep walking instead. I ran in high school, enjoyed it, but quit as I grew larger. Now that I'm in at least a good as shape as I was during my senior year, I am starting up again, but slowly. Have even sent in my registration for a 10k in October!
This article is very correct. The one i can point out is that when im upset or frustrated i just go jogging, it helps me release all the tension.i always tell myself that the treadmill is where i am to leave my frustrations at. I am not allowed to take them with me when im done. I love jogging.
I'm hit or miss about running. Some days I love it and some days I hate it. I started to run to my iPod. I would run a song and walk a song and so on, and then would go to run 2 songs walk one and would keep increasing. I also found that using the Elliptical at the gym helped me with my endurance in running.
This article is so true and I started running recently. I ran by minutes or I set a goal point when I didn't feel like wearing a timer. I would tell myself I would jog to the oak tree, walk to the corner, sprint to the stop sign, etc. It's great for intervals!!
I never enjoyed running (still don't all the time) and find it to be something that I really have to work at. I have yet to experience that "runner's high" that everyone talks about getting when they run. I did, however, run a 10k at the beginning of June, which I finished AND ran the entire time. I felt so proud of myself when I crossed that finish line! My husband would like me to try and do a half marathon, but I don't know if I'm quite ready to double my current distance yet or not.
You can do this!!! Just run for the pure joy of it like when you were a kid. Make sure to warm up and have a good pair of running shoes. You can run longer than you think you can. Remember your body can do more than your brain thinks it can. When your brain says you can't get to the next corner, have your body prove that you can!!
