Long Distance Running - One Great Aerobic Workout

You don't know the power of a great aerobic workout unless you've gone that extra mile. Long distance running is a wonderful form of aerobic workout that will have your heart pumping strong and your breathing steady and even. It will take to visit new places as you expand your distance running and relax your mind as you learn to run in the zone.

The beauty of long distance running is the aerobic high that only comes after a certain distance marker. It might be a few miles or several km. That distance might change from run to run. But the fact remains that when you hit a certain long run distance the great aerobic workout effect occurs.

One nice thing about long distance running and maintaining a good aerobic workout is the pace that you set. You can maintain the same pace for 20 minutes or an hour if you choose. That is the beauty, you get to choose. The pace isn't set to a rhythm of drums or another person's level of skill. You decide the pace, can modify it anytime you want and start and stop at your will.

You can also get a great aerobic workout from a long distance run even if you're not moving very fast. You might run slower but longer, trading bursts of energy for steady rhythm. There is no pressure to follow or out perform anyone. Sometimes, other workouts can have you out of breath because your aerobic level doesn't match the other person's. This can de-motivate you and not want to continue to exercise. Long distance running is about pacing yourself with your level of aerobic ability.

Finally, long distance running takes you outdoors. Long distance running takes advantage of combining nature with aerobic fitness. The longer you run, the more of your natural surroundings you can enjoy. You can design your long runs to take you through parks, over hills and around running water. Not many other fitness workouts can offer you that. Running in nature and soaking up the earth's energy is just one of the many benefits of this form of aerobic exercise.

When you want to give your body a good workout, strengthen your heart and improve your breathing, start a long distance running program. Build up slowly and you'll be able to monitor in miles or km, your progress and aerobic workout level. And enjoy getting out and being a part of nature while working on your fitness.
