Running For Healthy Life

by - Friday, May 11, 2012

I will share my personal experience of my First FUN RUN event and the hurdles that are overcome during the process as well as  some of the basics of running and getting fit.

Running is FUN!!!

I am not crying....

Prior to the event,  I have to prepare my body because it is my first time to run 3K.  Eating sufficient food like cereal and milk, orange or pineapple juices in the morning.  And to sleep early are just one of my simple preparation.  


While striving to make healthier lifestyle choices every day, you will learn strategies, planning techniques, recipes, stretches, exercises, and motivational tools that you can try for yourself. What works and what doesn't will be different for everyone.  Change will not happen overnight and setbacks will occur, but by embracing the new road you are ready to go down, you will find yourself strong, confident, and enjoying each deep breath you take.


Running with friends is a good example,  being able to hold a conversation can also be an indicator that we are running at a suitable pace: not too fast and not too slow for an optimal health benefit. This is often referred to as the “Talk Test”.

We ran on that day with many runners, and we wanted to add a little more distance to the route but we have to follow the rules, 3k is great for beginners like me.

We talked about it as we ran and agreed where to run. I ran more than I would have if I ran by myself.

After the run, I was glad that I did the 3k mileage.

3K YOU GOT ME!!!!
Also, my running companion ran faster than I would have in the early part of the run (I actually had to ask her to slow down a little), and I think I pushed her at the end of the run. It was mutually beneficial.
