Lose Weight Running In The Morning
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It is always going to be the way, people trying to lose a few pounds for health reasons or vanity, either way people will go to some extents to do this and some in a natural way through fitness or a good balanced diet, others through extreme unnecessary dieting that usually leads to health problems.

A routine I have incorporated in to my day that keeps me fit and lean is by running first thing in the morning and I will explain in a bit. If you are looking to lose a couple of pounds over a few weeks by having an early jog 3-4 times a week will help you achieve your goals. I have written another article here at Street Articles you may be interested in for toning up called “Grab a jump rope and skip yourself slim”.

Running In The Morning,How, Why?

This is actually much harder than you think, and the key ingredient you need here is, motivation. Getting your self up an hour or half an hour earlier than you usually get up is the hardest part, but, it is about routine and self discipline. You will want to run for around 10 mins or up to 20 mins, no more as it is really just a wake up call, but also a high boost to your metabolism. If you are a beginner, just run for around 10 minutes and gradually add on more time, depending on how much time you have in the morning.

Why?

I really love my run first thing in the morning and remember how hard it was to get in to this routine, but with out my morning run (and rope) I would not be in the great shape I am now.

- Running first thing in the morning is a great way of creating mental alertness, basically waking up your brain, you do feel so alive, so energetic when you return, and the best part, you feel like you have been to the gym yet still have a whole day ahead of you, nothing wasted.

- Pumping that Heart. As we know, getting our heart rate up is important in fitness and getting it up first thing in the morning will wake up your body as well as your brain, actually boosting brain power setting you up for the day, and with the heart racing through the day, helping burn calories.

- The Metabolism Monster. It builds up your metabolism preparing you for a raging breakfast. Building up your metabolism can help you lose weight once you eat the right balanced diet.

- Duracell Bunny. Starting the day with a run creates crazy energy and keeps going through the day you will not believe how alert and happy you feel inside by just getting into a routine of a morning run.

Remember, it is mind over matter when trying to get up in the morning but if you are determined to lose weight with a run then this should be your motivation. Be sure to get plenty of sleep, stay hydrated, wear the right clothing, wear the right shoe to try and avoid running pains and irritations, start of slow and eventually you will build up time and pace. Take it easy to during the morning, this is a relaxing run that helps to set you up for the day but comes with great benefits. I live by my morning run and hope this article can help motivate you too. Any questions feel free to ask in the comment bow below, enjoy.
