Let's talk about the benefits of running first.
Common benefits of running
1. Improve cardiopulmonary function, enhance immunity, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases
When running, the lung volume rose from 5.8 liters to 6.2 liters on average, and the blood oxygen content increased greatly. The frequency of heart beats and the elasticity of blood vessel walls have also been greatly improved, and blood circulation will be accelerated.
Therefore, long-term running, faster nutrient delivery, better metabolism, physical fitness and resistance will naturally rise. At the same time, running can reduce blood fat and cholesterol levels, which is of great benefit to patients with early diabetes and hypertension.
2. Improve sleep quality
By running, the blood supply and oxygen supply of the brain can be increased by about 25%. Coupled with the fatigue after exercise, it will make you enter deep sleep faster and sleep more soundly.
3. Enhance physical resilience
The movements of raising the leg, striding, supporting, and pushing during running can help move the joints, strengthen the muscles of the legs, and increase the resistance to injury of tendons, ligaments and joints. The skin and muscles can also become firmer and more elastic.
4. Relieve stress and relieve mood
Running can reduce the secretion of adrenaline, norepinephrine, and corticosteroids, and release endorphins and serotonin that make people happy.
5. Exercise your will
Persisting in running for a long time and continuously reaching new goals is beneficial to enhance your self-confidence and willpower, and it can also increase the speed of your recovery from fatigue.
6. Delay aging
Regular exercise will stimulate the secretion of growth hormone, delay aging, and make you look younger than your peers.
7. Reduce fat and shape, improve posture
Persisting in running, women's body fat can be reduced by 12% to 20%. With less body fat, the vest line and abdominal muscles are naturally exposed.
Running can basically mobilize our body's muscles and bones, and help improve posture problems such as hunched back, round shoulders, high and low shoulders, mouse hands, backaches, shoulders and neck pain.
8. Improve "sexuality"
Aerobic exercise can increase female estrogen and male testosterone, so you know.
But why is running so "profitable" that many people still can't stick to it?
Why can't you persist, but someone is addicted to running?
Most people who don’t run think that running is a self-abuse exercise. They have bad breath, pain in their calves, and breathlessness...
800 meters or 1000 meters is a nightmare for as many people as they are studying, so many people would rather choose to go on a diet than to run.
In fact, the reason why you feel that running is painful is precisely because you gave up at the most painful stage of running, so the feeling of running is always imprinted with pain.
As long as you cross this stage, running may make you addicted.
In the beginning, it may be for weight loss, for health, to relieve stress, to cope with exams...
But why did you keep running afterwards?
Because only by running farther, we can get closer to ourselves.
Because while running, you can always meet the self in the depths of your soul, and the self you want to be.
