Running can be a serious sport or just weekend exercise depending on how committed you choose to be.  But whether as sport or exercise, doctors recommend running as one of the top forms of cardio activities you can do to stay fit and healthy.

Running requires you to do rapid movement on foot with long strides. It works out the leg muscles and keeps them well-developed which in effect builds up the strength of your heart muscles. But running regularly not only lessens your chances of getting heart disease, here are some more benefits:

·         It strengthens your immune system and helps fight off cancer and respiratory diseases.

·         It boosts up your energy levels so you become more active and alive in life.

·         It will help you lose weight by increasing your metabolism so that you burn calories at a faster rate.

·         It helps you sleep better and so you feel more rested and renewed.

Beginner runners, though, start running without proper preparation. It is not as simple as putting on your running shoes and then you just run for as fast and as far as you can or want to go. If you push your body too vigorously for the first time, you’re likely to get injuries or get dehydrated, or worse, you tax your heart out too much which can lead to an increase of high-blood pressure or you might likely suffer a heart attack.

No doubt, running is healthy exercise or healthy sport for you! That is, only if you prepare for it prior to starting and if you follow all the conditions well during the entire program.

This book offers all the necessary tips before you start to run. It also gives a simple introduction to distance running if you want to take it up as a sport. This is an essential preparatory guide for beginner runners to help you learn how to run the right way so you can prevent any running injuries or health problems as you start running your butt off!
