Jogging Tips to Find Better Health, Fitness, and Weight Loss

By James Steele

Many people find that jogging is the best way to improve their fitness levels and lose weight. It’s great because really, as soon as you start your jog you know you’re burning calories, getting a little more fit, and your body and mind are happy with what you’re doing. We have some great tips for you that will help you to extract the maximum from your jogging.

If you are going to start a running routine, you must stick with your plan all the way through. Many people start off with a lot of enthusiasm, and may even overdo it at first. That’s when they usually suffer an injury, like a pulled muscle, and they’ll usually stop running for months at a time. That’s now how to get the most out of running. Just start slow and then make sure you focus on consistency. If you want to get the most out of your running routine, you will want to run for at least 30 minutes at a time, 3 days per week. Don’t worry about speed at first, just do it. The best way to do it is to start off with just a little bit at a time instead of pushing the body too hard so that you injure yourself or quit out of frustration. While you should not run if you are sick or have an injury, you may have to push yourself a little sometimes. If you usually have a dozen excuses for not running or jogging, such as that you’re too worn out or your schedules too busy, then you will probably quit your running routine prematurely.

One good approach to begin with a running regimen is to do power walking which is quite common. If you are not used to exercise, or haven’t done it for a long time, walking can be a great way to gradually get your body accustomed to moving around. It does not matter at all how fast or slow you begin, the important thing is to get started. You can progress to the point where you’re in a slow jog, and then try to maintain an even pace with that. Many people try to do too much, too fast; and that is inviting injuries. There are people all over who actually stick with power walking because it just works better for them, and actually power walking is an excellent exercise, as well. Even those who are able to run might want to work their way up to a faster pace by walking first.

To help you avoid injuries, you need to listen to your body and watch for any warning signs. Pushing yourself too hard is not a good idea. If you are just starting out with jogging, start off slowly and gradually increase your speed and distance. When you’re running, stop if you feel any sharp pains, and if the pain doesn’t go away, go see your doctor. You can end up doing more harm than good if you push yourself too hard which is why you need to pay attention to how you feel while jogging.

If you go jogging several times a week, you can get a lot out of it. Use your common sense when jogging, meaning remembering to stretch, wearing the right shoes, and not overdoing it. Using these tips will help you maintain a solid jogging routine year round.
