Put Your Best Foot Forward: An 8-part series on Feeling Your Best While Running.
Maybe you have been running your whole life and you love it. Then again, maybe you are one of those people who only runs if something is chasing them. Chances are, even if you love to run you have probably experienced a wide range of challenges related to your running routine from time to time. Whether you are aiming to get off the couch and run around the block, run your first 5k, or are training for the Boston Marathon, we have some practical, honest, and motivational tips that we have compiled from our team of experts here at SmartCells USA.
Why should everyone be running, you ask? Well, it has a lot to do with science. Statistics from the American Journal of Cardiology, the American Heart Association, and the National Osteoporosis Foundation tell us that running regularly improves our overall health. If you don’t believe us, here are some of the numbers to consider. Running regularly reduces the risk of breast cancer by 25%, cataracts by 35%, depression by 19%, and serious heart attack by 50%. Running for even 5 minutes a day can cut your risk of cardiovascular disease by 45% and increases your life expectancy by three full years. Wow! Need we say more? Basically, running seems to be good for you. Even if you aren’t a runner, no need to stress, as 30-minutes of high-impact exercise a day is all you need to build strong bones. Walking also burns calories, but running burns those same calories twice as fast!
Over the next 8 weeks we will be exploring everything from the best stretches and body position for running, to how to stay motivated and find a running schedule that works for your fitness and activity level. We will also discuss options available related to finding the right gear to support your body properly while you run, to tips from our CEO who recently ran a half-marathon. We hope you will consider joining us for this fun look into the world of running. Our goal is to help you get started, or stay motivated, and keep going in a pattern of health that fits your particular lifestyle needs.
