Let’s be real, here - not many people ACTUALLY like running. Working out can be such a chore, but we all want to feel good and reap the benefits. So how much of the hard stuff do we REALLY have to do? Luckily for us, only a minute or two of running could actually be doing us a solid.
Seriously! It seems that 60 to 120 seconds of high intensity activity will help out your bone health a ton. But if you’re looking to reap some of the other, more noticeable benefits, you still don’t have to run an entire marathon. In fact, running just twice a week will help your cardiovascular health immensely.
Running more than the bare minimum (if you can bare it) has a ton of benefits, too, like stress relief and weight loss. If you can handle it, get running! Still can’t get in the zone? Try a HIIT (high intensity interval training) run/walk combo (like this).
