English version only.
I started running this Summer, you knew that already and I don’t want stress you more then usual on this.
My goal is being able to run 10Km by next Spring, 10 km seems to me a reasonable distance, but I have recently read that running a mile (1.6km) has the same life-lengthening benefits as a marathon.
The study (research published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology), which lasted 15 years and included 55,137 adults, discovered that those who ran for less than an hour a week gained the same health benefits as those who ran for over three hours a week.
This is good news for a number of reasons, of course it means that we have more time to do other activities, but also that the risk of injuries becomes very low. Running a marathon is hugely satisfying but also painful and dangerous for your body. I don’t think I will ever run a marathon, however the above research is interesting to me and I guess to everybody else who thinks you have to run a lot to see health benefits.
Let’s go for a run!
Because we are talking about running I want to show you what I got a few weeks ago. JoggBox is a subscription box and each month, as a member, you will receive a package filled with the best nutrition products out on the market, new accessories and outfits designed to keep the perfect balance of comfort and style while running.
In the October box I have found:
- 2 Push Energy Gels
- 1 Pulsin Vanilla Choc Chip Bar
- 1 Elivar Endure sachet
- 2 Frank Food Snack Bars
- 1 Miso Soup by Clearspring
- 1 KT TAPE Fastpack
- 1 Body Glide Anti Chafe
- 1 iPhone Armband by JoggBox
I really liked the Miso Soup by Clearspring, brand of which I am a huge fan, the Frank Food snack bars and the iPhone Armband because I didn’t have one and I now know the difference between running with the phone in your hands or having them free… much much better with the armband.
