Becoming Buff: Running took a running class in college and really enjoyed it.  Here are some things I learned:

-There are 3500 calories in one pound of fat.
-Jogging builds bone density in the hips and spine.
-You burn 100 calories from running 1 mile.
-You can improve your metabolism.
-5 miles on a bike is equal to 1 mile of jogging

Interesting, right?  Here are some of my running tips.

-The last 5 minutes are the hardest.  Repeat in your mind that you can do ANYTHING for 5 minutes.
-Pick a point/time/mileage that you want to achieve.  As soon as you get there, convince yourself that you're not tired and go further.
-Repeat in your mind that you're not tired, and you could run forever.

What are your running/exercising tips?


  1. Hey those are the things I tell myself in the last five min. !! haha. awesome! that woulda been my tip too! You can do anything for 5 min.!
    Running is great.. its even greater when you make a habit and your body just goes ! I'm training for Robie so I could use some 1/2 marathon tippers :)
