Running And Cycling, Maintaining A Healthy Lifestyle}

Submitted by: Paul Reacher

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle with physical exercise does not have to be a burden, you can have a lot of fun with it. All that is needed is that you change your mindset and adjust your attitude, and you will find things to be a lot easier when it comes to exercising.

Whilst many persons like to debate on whether they should do running or cycling, I recommend taking a combination of both, with some walking mixed in. Because cycling is easier on your body, it easier to perform this exercise with much more frequency and for longer periods whilst running will take a much larger toll on your body. Today, I will describe a basic and fun exercise routine which you can follow that will not be hard for you to follow and maintain for an extended period of time.

Your Schedule

This routine will require that you select three days per week on your calendar where you will be spending approximately forty five to sixty minutes on physical training. Ensure that you pick the days on your calendar that will not conflict with your work schedule or study schedule because it is very important for you to maintain this routine consistently to see long term results

During your first few weeks of beginning this new routine, I will need you to spend that forty five to sixty minutes walking as your physical exercise for two days per week. This walking should be done briskly and you can choose a place that best suits you to go and get it done. Of you would like, take a friend with you because this will make it much easier for you during the process. You will spend the third day of exercising using your bicycle for physical workout.

For beginners, be sure to carry a bottle of water with you when out on your training because your body can get dehydrated really fast and this can hinder your workout.

As you continue to follow this routine for about two months consistently, your body will adapt and you will see that your physical endurance increases. Thus, I will need you to modify your workout schedule so that it will be a challenge and also help you to see the best results.

Change your first two days routines from walking to running and jogging. It will be extremely hard at the beginning to make this adaptation but if you persevere, you will be running miles in no time. Do not push yourself too far, however, try intermittent walking as you begin to transition into this new method of physical exercise. You can continue your third day of exercise with the same thing you have been doing, cycling and you should be fine.

Follow this basic routine for a few months and you will see results and live a much more healthier life. The key thing to remember is that your maintaining your physical health should be a long term process that does not last for just a couple of mornings, it is something you should strive to maintain throughout your lifetime. That is why this routine is so great, because it is not too excessive, it does not pressure you too much or invade on your personal life so you have a good balance.
