There are many regular activities that anyone can work into their weekly schedules, in order to live a healthier lifestyle with exercise. Running is one of the best exercises that individuals can work into their schedules for positive and quick changes to fitness, health, and lifestyle. Not only does running provide aerobic exercise, but offers strength to nearly every muscle in the human body.
What’s the Best Way to Start a Running Schedule?
Setting aside the time to start running on a daily or weekly basis is easy, sticking to that schedule can often be the most difficult part of your new exercise regimen. Setting a goal for your running can greatly improve your chances of sticking with your new running and exercise schedule. One of the best ways that we have found for setting and keeping a running goal is to set your sights on an up and coming running event or marathon that you can work towards. Having a scheduled run several months down the road will give you a goal that you can keep in mind while preparing for and on your weekly runs.
