RunningIt may be super cold where you are right now but even that is no excuse to go outside for a run.

Did you know that only 5 minutes of running per day will have a substantial effect on your health?

6 Reasons to Start Running 5 Minutes a Day:

  1. Improved Brain Performance – due to increased flow of oxygen rich blood throughout the body including the brain.
  2. Better Mood – no matter what your day has been like a run will put you in a much better mood and help you think of the way forward.
  3. Better Sleep
  4. Reduce High Blood Presure
  5. 45 percent lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease, according to a 2014 study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
  6. Increase your lifespan by 3 years



3 Tips to make sure you really start running:

  1. Make a friend go with you
  2. Only run short distances for the first month at least
  3. Buy yourself some new running shoes.

My personal favourite running shoes are Asics / I love their online site that helps you decide which shoes are perfect for you click here.



Wishing you all lots of fun getting Fit For Christmas – I promise you will thank me if you start running at least 5 mins a day!
