It seems that everyone is trying to find the best way to get in shape and to lose the extra pounds that they have been carrying around for quite some time. One of the best ways for them to be doing this is to find a cardio that is going to help them the most. Running is one of my favorite and the easiest for anyone to do.
Although running is not the best form of cardio that you can be doing it is one that will get results. It is the easiest for people to do because they will have no problem going outside their door and running for thirty minutes at a time. They do not need a gym membership or any equipment except for good running shoes.
If you do not run a lot than you will find it very difficult at first. Understand that you will not be able to run even a whole mile to begin with. You need to work your way up slowly to avoid injury and to get the best results. Start by going a mile. For twenty seconds you will walk fast and for forty seconds you will run as hard as you can.
This will help to build up your endurance as well as your leg strength. The more you practice the longer you will be able to run. After a week you should be able to run a whole mile steadily. Don’t worry if you are not able to run it very fast. It will be just as good to run it in twelve minutes as it would in eight.
Make sure that you are a fun runner. This is easier to handle and to work your way up than if you are trying to be competitive. Remember that it takes time. After a few months you will be able to run ten miles without too much effort.
