Protect Your Health by Running Away (Infographic)
If you knew a simple way about to halve your risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease later in life, would you want to implement it? What if it had nothing to do with supplements or following a healthy diet and involved very little expense?
You would want to go for it, I’m sure. Most people would. It’s not effortless, but it is also not that difficult to implement. It’s just a matter of running a few kilometers a week. 24.6 km a week to be exact, so that’s where the effort comes in.
On the whole, though, it probably means less than half an hour of running a day, depending on how fit you are. And, all you really need to spend some money on is a decent pair of running shoes.
Even if Alzheimer’s Disease is not high on your list of concerns at the moment, running has more immediate health benefits. Like helping to reduce your blood pressure and levels of bad cholesterol, for example.
And, let’s not forget about the potential fat burning benefits of running. Did you know, for example, that interval training when running can potentially boost the fat burning effects of your run five times over?
If you want to find out about the other potential health benefits, the infographic will provide you with more details and some other interesting facts about running.
