CALORIES WILL NOT “AFTER BURN”
Some tend to think that you will burn calories after you finish a run and while it to some extend is true, the amount of burned calories is as low as maximum of 30 calories for the faster runners. So try to only concentrate on the calories you burn while running. Gradually build up your stamina and speed and make you runs more intensive and longer.
RUN MORE THAN 1 HOUR
It is important to remember that if your goals by running is to lose weight, you need to run more than one hour. Generally if you are overweight, you run slower, therefore you need to run longer.
MODERATE EXERCISE IS NOT ENOUGH
Some tend to think that exercise over a long period of time performed at medium pace will make you lose weight. This isn’t quite the truth. It may help your health in general, but the body only cares about the calories you burn here and now so therefore each run needs to be as intensive and long as possible in order to lose weight.
Okay, so running every day is, for most people, not an option but you need to run at least 5 times a week if your goal is to lose weight.
The faster you run, the more calories you burn. This is a bit of an obstacle especially for those who are new to running. But you will gradually be able to pick up speed. So start up slow and in your own tempo to avoid injuries and gradually try to pick up speed and intensity.
Now aside from losing weight, another good thing is that running for many becomes an addiction. So while in the beginning it may seem hard, once you pass the first obstacles and see results and get better health, you will most likely even adopt a new lifestyle with healthier food and an overall better health with less stress in life and less risks of diseases and illness. So put on those running shoes and get going! 👟🏃
