8 Things No One Told You About Running

We all know running does the body good, but did you know about these other benefits from running training?

It Will Help You Live Longer

Studies show that 30 minutes of physical training every day can improve cardiovascular, respiratory, and mental health. Running for even a short period of time each day can keep bodies younger and healthier and can even extend runners’ lives.

It Can Help You Make Friends

Running clubs exist in practically every city. Clubs are great ways for runners to meet people with similar fitness goals and gain support in their training.

Shoes and Socks Can make all the Difference

The proper running gear can make or break your run. Shoes and socks should provide adequate support, especially to the arch of the foot and the ankles. Wearing improper footwear can lead to injury and sore feet during training.

Running at Morning can Help You Lose Weight Throughout the Day

Studies show that running in the morning can increase metabolism throughout the day. Those who run in the morning can burn approximately 10 percent more calories throughout the day, which can add up to big results. It seems getting up early can be a good thing.

It Can Ward off Depression

Exercise causes endorphins to be released within the body. These endorphins are natural mood enhancers, which cause the runner to feel naturally happier after training.

Even Just Eleven Minutes Can Be Enough

While most experts say that 30 minutes of exercise is substantial, new studies suggest that only 11 minutes of training can be enough for runners to experience the physical and mental benefits of running.

Music Can Improve Your Time

Not only can music keep you from getting bored on your run, it can also increase your stamina and speed. According to, runners who listen to music during training increased their stamina by 15 – 30 percent.

Your Dog Can Be Your Best Training Partner

Running buddies are a great way to keep up the motivation to hit the pavement. But, while a best friend might cancel on you at the last minute, your dog will always be up for a jog around the park. Dogs have also been shown to increase mood and keep runners on pace for longer periods of time.
