I used to run a 5K every morning and then got out of the practice. I was my healthiest weight at that time. Trying to get back to it because I felt amazing after running. But I never over did it. You have to listen to your body and give it the rest it needs
If running is your exercise of choice, that's most prudent to take precautions to prevent injury . . . just like w/any other activity.
I run a lot. I'm not sure if it is worth it or not. It's hard on my body, but I want to challenge myself also.
Something to think about...Thx!
Joints protest running now. Arthritis, bah!
I run daily.. it’s my release and I lose it. No plans to stop
I was not able to view the photos of the trainer's legs, but I can absolutely attest to the fact that running does NOT lead to muscle loss in that area! Quite the contrary. I ran 5 miles/day when I was in college. Although running allowed me to maintain a very low weight (125 lbs. -- 10 lbs. LESS than I weighed in high school,) my calf muscles bulked up to 17." I could no longer wear my riding boots.
Everything is bad for you or good depending on the amounts.
