Have you ever wanted to know what your body goes through on a daily Run?
Take a read of this infographic which explains what happens during the time spent running.
Thanks to MyfitnessPal for taking the time to construct this graphic.
The 4 Areas your body will receive the most benefit are:
#1 Heart Health: 5 – 10min of running each day has the potential to reduce the risk of stroke
and heart attack. Runners are shown to have a 45% lower risk of dying of cardiovascular disease.
#2 DNA Alterations: A single 20-minute bout of aerobic exercise may alter your DNA for the better.
Going for a short jog can lead to increased fitness and prevention of diseases like Type2 diabetes.
#3 Weight Loss: A 155- pound person will burn about 298 calories running 30 minutes at 12 minute
mile pace. Completing 30 minutes of aerobic exercise a day at a moderate/comfortable intensity
has the potential to lose eight pounds over three months.
#4 Metabolic Boost: Completing 60 minutes of aerobic exercise can increase your metabolic
rate (up to five times more than a 30 min workout ).
