Running is an easy sport, and a pair of running shoes will allow you to do it on almost any surface.
But time is limited in one day, when is the best time to run? In fact, each time period has its own advantages. The following will tell you the advantages and disadvantages of morning running, afternoon running and night running.
1. Run in the morning: wake up the organs and speed up the metabolism
When you wake up, your organs are in a relaxed state. Running can wake up your organs, speed up your metabolism, and maintain a good mental state throughout the day. At the same time, running in the morning is the best way to lose weight. If you want to achieve weight loss, you can choose to run for 80 minutes in the morning run to achieve the effect of aerobic exercise. However, if you run in the morning on an empty stomach or high-intensity, it is easy to induce hypoglycemia, so it is best to properly pad your stomach and add enough water before morning running.
Points to note: Morning jogging has a big disadvantage, that is, exercising when the organs are not "awake" will increase the heart rate and blood pressure faster than ever, which puts a heavy burden on the heart. Moreover, the morning is the "peak period" of heart attack, and the risk of sudden death is higher. If the heart and cardiovascular system are not good, it is best not to run too vigorously, or simply avoid running at this time.
2. Run in the afternoon: the best time for physical function
The human body reaches its best state almost between 4 and 6 in the afternoon, whether it is in terms of physical strength, mental state, or physical function, it is the best. This can not only improve the efficiency of running, but also reduce the risk of running The possibility of injury while running.
Precautions: The ultraviolet rays in the afternoon are relatively strong. When running outdoors, you must take sun protection measures. It is best to choose to run after 4 o'clock when the sun is about to set.
3. Run at night: relieve stress and help to relax
Now more and more people choose to run at night, because there is relatively plenty of time at night, which can also relieve the pressure of a busy day and keep them in a good mood to end the day. And contrary to morning running, the number of platelets decreased by 20% during night running, which greatly reduced the risk of vascular embolism. Therefore, it does not have such a high cardiovascular risk as morning running.
Note: Because running stimulates the central nervous system of the human body, it will activate the sympathetic nerves and even promote the secretion of dopamine in the brain. As a result, it may cause difficulty falling asleep at night or insomnia. The best way is not to exercise 1-2 hours before going to bed, so as not to affect the normal work and rest. If it is easy to fall asleep due to night running, you may wish to run in the afternoon or evening.
