Running Just 5 Minutes A Day Adds Years To Your Life


Do you love to run? Even just for 10 minutes at a time? Well keep it up, because for any type of runner (from the most recreational jogger to the ultra-endurance athlete) it could be adding years to your life.



In new study published online in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, researchers reviewed 15 years of data from more than 55,000 adults, ages 18 to 100. What they found was truly amazing: runners were a whopping 45% less likely to die from cardiovascular disease. And they were at 30% reduced risk for any cause of death. Runners were also found to live three years longer than non-runners on average.

What’s even more amazing is that these benefits seemed to hold true even for those who only were running 51 minutes a week (or roughly five to 10 minutes a day). In fact, those running only an hour a week experienced the same health benefits as those running three times as much. And the running benefits seemed to exist even when other health factors, such as age, sex, weight, smoking and alcohol use were taken into account.

So when it comes to running, no matter what you're eating, how much you drink, and how old you are: just getting out there for five minutes a day could make a huge difference to your health.

So keep it up, and don't sweat making it through a marathon!
