12 Benefits of Running

Are you ready to start running again after a long break? Struggling to find motivation to run? Getting back into your normal running routine can feel tough for some. During the lockdown period many struggled adjusting to the limitations, especially after years spent building up their fitness for it to decrease in a matter of months. We’ll be discussing some of the benefits to running, hoping to help motivate and remind you that you are capable of achieving great things! 

Weight Loss
The average runner burns over 1,000 calories an hour!

Strengthen Bones
Running helps stimulate bones encouraging them to remain stronger and not easily weaken with age.

Stress Relief
It’s a great way to take your mind of things! Running increases your ability to cope with everyday challenges and stresses.

Big booster for endorphins! The “runner’s high” feeling gives you a sense of elation during and after a run. 

Immune System
Did you know that running helps you to have a stronger immune system and suffer less from minor illnesses such as colds, allergies, fatigue, backache and digestive disorders?

Easy Sleep
I can put my hand up and say that I sleep like a baby after a long run!

Healthy Heart
A powerful sprint can improve blood circulation, reduce the risk of heart attacks, high blood pressure and strokes.

Mental Health
Running is always good for lifting your mood, building self-esteem and increasing your self-confidence.

Clearer Skin
It helps stimulate circulation, improves the transportation of nutrients and flushes out toxins in the body and skin!
