I’ve been MIA lately due to a sick leave, but I’m back stronger than ever. I decided to run 30 minutes a day every week day during lunch.
Half an hour may not seem like enough time to train, but a 30-minute window is all you need if you want to improve your health.
1. You’ll burn fat
Running for just 15-30 minutes will kick-start your metabolism and see you burn fat. It's so much better to think, 'I have 30 minutes, so I'm going to get a quick run in' than, 'I only have half an hour, so I won't bother’, which is SO easily done.
2. You’ll feel happy
You'll release all those wonderful endorphins and feel better for that quick run. Often, a quick blast is much more beneficial than a long run, as you avoid the post-run tiredness and it makes you feel alive and revitalised. You will also feel much more accomplished for making the effort to go. A quick run is a great way to de-stress.
3. You’ll recover quickly
30 minutes of intense exercise (for example, HIIT) or a normal run for 30 minutes doesn't overstretch and overuse your muscles, making you at risk of injury.
4. You’ll blast those calories
Running for 30 minutes will guarantee you a minimum of 200-500 calories burned. That means a 30-minute run, whatever your speed, pace or ability, will really help your weight-loss goals.
5. You’ll sleep peacefully
A minimum of 30 minutes running a day aids a restful night’s sleep. Running can also significantly reduce anxiety and can help you cope with depression in a healthy way, which is often a cause of insomnia.
6. You’ll define those muscles
30 minutes of running is excellent at defining those muscles!
Hope I just convinced you to squeeze a 30 minutes run in your day #runningmotivation #runnersofinstagram #runningforweightloss #hiit #5kmrun #healthylifestyle #consistencyiskey #consistency #motivation #discipline #disciplineequalsfreedom #bbg #bbgtransformation #bbgmontreal #bbgcanada #deathbykayla #kaylaitsines #fit #fitlife #fitlifestyle
