A woman shares how regular running for a year brought transformation. The first thing she shares is that a good run can immediately improve the mood. That’s because you can experience Europhobic feeling when your body produces endorphins due to running. This is the most well-known benefit she got after getting into running shoes and running a few miles. Apart from a boost in the mood, there is a number of other positive physical effects that running made on her body.
Transformation caused due to running
Let’s take a look in all the changes that happened in the composition of her body and physical system after running for a year:
- Body composition: The amount of lean muscle, organs, water, bone or fat together is the composition of our body. Usually, people are interested in increasing lean muscle and decreasing fat. The strategy of any exercise is also in that and running regularly for a year helped her to achieve the desired results. Besides that, she got increased metabolism, good bone density and ultimately her overall health improved.
- System improvements: Running is essential for boosting metabolism. As the calorie burn increases for a time period even after you stop running. So, a consistent running routine will improve your overall endurance. As long as she practiced running the longer she is able to maintain the exercise which in turn allows her muscles to increase their efficiency to create energy. Through the endurance training of running, she got help in all aspects of her daily life.
According to her when she started running, her muscles relied on adenosine triphosphate (ATP). These molecules are created by food and are stored in the form of glycogen within muscles and blood. As she continued moving, more ATP got unpacked from these glycogen storage units and was consumed by her muscles to keep her running.
When she continued, gradually her muscles begin to release lactic acid to signal to the brain that she is working, and performing some physical activity. So, the muscle cells continue to break down glucose and use oxygen. After a while, the body begins to shunt blood away from non-essential functions begins to bring oxygen to areas that need it and for that body starts to breathe heavier.
When she built up endurance, then her body became used to a sustainable cycle of breathing, sweating and breaking down glucose into ATP. During her cool-down period as her pace slows and she reverts back to a walk, her breathing return to normal, and the heart rate slows and her body to continue to produce energy.
Therefore, after hearing the transformation story of a woman due to running for a year we can now conclude that running is a great way of combining various physical instances at one go. Running increases endurance and thus help in building muscle for maintaining an optimal body fat composition, promotes cardiovascular health, improves the condition of the heart and most importantly you can get into a good mood instantly. If running is combined with weight training, it can help you to balance the mental stimulation and physical fitness of the body.
