Enjoy Running With These Tips

If you’re beginning from 0, we recommend you to run around the block or run in a safe place like in a treadmill or field and do it for at least 5 minutes straight.

Running can actually cause the same kind of neurochemical adaptations in the reward centers and brain’s pleasure as some addictive drugs.

Practice is the best method, even though sometimes there are days when you would rather do anything else besides begin to run. So use our science-backed tricks to stay motivated.

Use music to train

Music cannot directly affect your performance, but it’s through influencing your state of mind or mood, that music can enhance your physical performance.

  • Music can distract you from the sensations of fatigue and effort.
  • Music can alter your physiological and emotional arousal.
  • Music can literally move your body.
  • Many athletes use it as part of their pre-performance routine and during low-moderate-high intensity exercise.

There is strong evidence to suggest that the synchronization of music with movement leads to movement efficiency and greater endurance.

Find a partner to run

Running with friends make the miles fly by. There is a real benefit of running with others and there’s no better way to socialize than catching up while you get your miles in.

A good way to find a running partner is within your closest circle of friends, family or even work people. You can share your interest in running with these individuals you already know mostly, and they could be good candidates.

Run motivated

Whether you’re a running novice or a profesional, there are always ways to boost your endurance and speed. Remember that a daily run helps increase your body’s ability to burn fat.

Running isn’t about nailing the perfect form. Keep your spine and chest straight. The more relaxed your shoulders are, the less tension and tightness in your upper body.

Act like you enjoy it! Runners who smile need less oxygen, have a lower perceived rate of exertion, and run more naturally than runners who don’t think about their facial expression or who frown.
