Minerals

  Running for an hour several times a week can cause mineral deficiencies severe enough to impair your immune system. What's an Immune system you ask? Ok, the immune system is the body's defense against infectious organisms and other invaders. It attacks the organisms and other substances that invade the body and cause disease.Taking a multivitamin can help prevent deficiencies. Your local GNC can help you with your choice. If you are short on dough, just pick some up at any drugstore or super market.

Nutrition 101

Runners need to fuel their bodies properly.There are things you can do to get a good start to your day.
The most important thing is never skip breakfast.You've heard that a thousand times before.Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Here's why, if you skip breakfast,you are likely to concentrate less effectively in the morning.You may become irritable and short tempered.Moveover,your energy level will be depleted for your afternoon run.If you're pressed for time in the morning,try these-
Bran muffin with jam added, a bagel with low fat cream cheese and a can of V-8 juice, a large banana with a glass of milk or try yogurt with a bowl of cereal.Try any combination of these items, or choose your own. Remember it should be easy to prepare.
See Ya!

Balance

      Running after fifty turned out to be fun, right? Long, peaceful ,early morning journeys are delightful. Just you the road and an occasional car . A time to loose yourself in thought, to relish in your latest accomplishments.Remembering your first road race, how exciting. Thinking about the time you finished your first half marathon, splendid. Be careful not to loose yourself to running. Balance is the key. Never forget those walks in the park, your favorite author or the volunteer work that's dear to your heart.

Stay Balanced!

First, be clear on what it is you want to accomplish. Next, train, train and train somemore. ( Remember to have fun). Finally, have a clear picture of your goal in your mind and never to quit. Make health and fitness a life long goal. Go on challenge yourself!
