A good list and you made it look good too!
The list is very informative. In fact, even walking provides good benefits to health for both mental and physical…imagine how much running can do more?
And it also screws up your knees and back!
Au contraire… That’s just heresay from non-runners!
So your evidence is a post from the website that endorses running, thats very biased. He didn’t say it would give arthritis, running is very harmful to your knees and back. Long distance running especially. Running is good for you because it burns calories but it’s not the only thing that does that. HIIT is better for you and isn’t as long so better for your knees and back too.
All good reasons, but is it worth the long term affects? Such as bad joints, bad back, not being able to stand and even worse. Running is great, but you have to consider everything, even the negatives.
On an anecdotal note… I was plagued with knee problems in my 30s and 40s. Then, at 49, I took up running. I quickly built up to a 5k 3 times a week regimen. I’ve been running for 4 years now. At my last year’s physical I remarked to my doctor that it was amazing that I haven’t had a single knee problem since I’ve been running. He said it’s likely that it’s because I have built up the muscles supporting my knees. Maybe my knees will be a wreck in my 90s when I’m not able to run anymore. But for now, for me, it’s the solution to knee problems – not the cause.
Great story, Carol. Thanks for sharing. I’ve actually said something similar about my knees in my 90’s. I’d rather run now and deal with the consequences later!
Excellent List of top 15 reasons I love using HITT style of running for my cardio routine I found a great article back in 2001 issue of Muscle Media it was called Guerilla Cardio ( Tabata ) and always suggest it to my clients when they hit a sticking point in their weight loss goals. Here is the article http://www.cs.unm.edu/~wneumann/files/guerilla_cardio.pdf
