Recently I returned to running and got hit again by the running bug, I just love and let me tell you why!
Because running gets you out of the house and you get some fresh air.
If your like me, I get quite frustrated with my inadequacies as a person and since I have started running have found running really great to just burn off them feelings.
It is good for you physical health, I only do running three times a week but I still find it beneficial in helping me ton up my legs and help strength my arms (as I am on medication where one of the side effects causes me great deal of physical pain).
You feel like you have achieved something positive and can make you feel better for it.
It is really fantastic to help you sleep if you do in the evening or alternatively, if you do it first thing in the morning it can set you up for the day.
You build up stamina which is always handy if you have young children and they want you to run after them in the park.
I had a break from running for a few weeks and definitely missed it. Once I stsrted again with running I found it made me much happier in myself and like I achieved something.
Obiviously, a bonus reason for running is it burns of calerioes which who can not deny is wonderful.
If you have children it sets an example regarding doing exercise and a positive message of seeing it occur.
You never fully appreciate a shower until after a hot sweaty run.
It is free, you can do it practically any where and at any time if you wish.
There are so many free apps like c25k to help beginnings that are a great guide to help you know where to start. If you are really confident then there is an event called parkrun (again free) where you run with others and such buzz, plus the feeling of being part of the running community.
As a parent you sometimes lose yourself, so it is good to do something for yourself, a bit of ‘me time’ where it is an activity solely for you to enjoy and get something out of.
