Back from my run this morning. Thought the blossoms reflecting in the water were so pretty. During my run I was thinking although most people take up running for physical reasons like getting fit or losing weight the benefit I notice the most is how much happier I am.
I've been wondering why that is. During the c25k I think it has a lot to do with a sense of achievement but post grad you're not constantly making noticable improvement yet it still makes you happier. For me I know I love the peace and quiet of running in the early mornings. I switch my music off after about 10 min and enjoy the quiet. It is nice to be out in nature and when the air is a bit fresher. I am wondering if it is having this quiet me time which is the main thing or if it is more the result of exercise. I have always done some exercise class or other and walked alot but since taking up running I do really notice a change for the better. Running make you happy too?😊
