Valuable Running Strategies

By Phil Summers

There are some great rewards to running long distances. Not only will you end up feeling great after a nice run, but you’ll have higher energy levels, better health, and overall raised spirits due to endorphins that get released when the body is stimulated while it runs.

Here are a few tips that I’d like to share from my experience, all of which I believe will truly make the process of running far a lot easier and more enjoyable for you. Try these out and see if they work for you.

I can’t say enough about the impact that food and drink will have on your ability to run. It’s critical to have the right balance of food and water in your system before you set off on your run.

Too little food will lead to feelings of dizziness, which you should avoid at all costs. Too much food may lead to cramps and nausea, and you obviously want to avoid this too. The right balance of healthy food, though, will keep you going for longer as you run.

I’ll also suggest that you always run with music. Whether you have an mp3 player or any other device, you’ll definitely benefit from the presence of music.

There are psychological benefits to this approach. Namely, it serves as a distraction that helps to pass the time more quickly.

Lastly, find that time of day where your body’s most effective. Some people need to do it in the morning and they love the start it gets their day off to.

You may be someone who can’t motivate in the morning. I’m personally that way. On the other hand, there are many people who function best in the morning, as their bodies are most rested then.

Pick and choose from these tips, as I hope they end up helping you out.
