Many people know that running can strengthen your body, keep you in shape, detoxify your body, and so on. In fact, there is another benefit of running that is overlooked by many people: increased energy.
01How Running Increases Energy
The key to our enhanced energy is to fully activate cellular vitality, because cells are the most basic life elements that make up a living organism, all body organs are made up of cells, and only with healthy cells can we build an energized body. The most important nutrient for cells is oxygen. When cells are supplied with sufficient oxygen, they are energized and the body glows with health. Moreover, oxygen is a key element for cells to oxidize and break down substances such as sugar and fat and release large amounts of energy.
To energize yourself, you need to create a healthy physical environment where oxygen is efficiently transmitted and absorbed, releasing large amounts of energy while fully activating your cells. Running is the key to achieving this.
02The Key to Proper Running – Correct Posture
Although running can help us improve our mental vitality quickly, but if you run in the wrong posture, instead of running, you will get worse. So what is the correct running posture?
We can analyze it from the following three aspects:
First look at the way of landing when running. If you run with a forefoot landing, the Achilles tendon and calf muscles can assist in slowing down the impact after landing. Help us to reduce the pressure on the joints and bones; to improve the strength of the calf muscles and Achilles tendon, so that they synergistically cushion the impact of the landing; do not appear excessive stride when running, to avoid the formation of shear stress leading to knee injuries.
Secondly, the knee should maintain a certain degree of bending when running. This allows the muscles to be utilized to relieve the impact when the foot hits the ground. If the knees are straight, the impact when the feet hit the ground falls back on the bones and joints.
Then you need to increase the speed of your stride. Step frequency, is the speed at which you alternate between landing on both feet. The longer your feet are off the ground, the greater the impact caused when you land, so the faster the stride frequency, the less impact caused when you land.
What is the appropriate pace for running? About 180 beats per minute. Many people do not know how to check their own running pace speed, you can wear a heart rate monitor when running, its cell phone can automatically display the pace speed, try to make the frequency in the process of running
Try to keep your cadence at 180 beats per minute.
Finally, try not to stomp the ground with your heels when running. We can observe that some students’ calf muscles are very large, which may be caused by using the calf too much when running, especially when the back foot pushes the ground. Moreover, if we stomp hard when running, it will increase the friction and make the heel stay on the ground for a longer time, which is equivalent to stepping on the brake and then starting again, and our running speed will not be fast enough.
