Here’s What Happens To You If You Run For 30 Minutes!
From the beginning of the time, man have run and walked. These activities are most natural in genes. Unfortunately, running and walking are replaced by various forms of transportation (cars, public transport).
Scientists have proved that running lowers the levels of bad cholesterol, fat, triglycerides and blood sugar. Reduces the risk of various diseases, such as heart and blood vessels and type 2 diabetes.
Apart from the body, running also has a good effect on the mind. Running reduces the risk of depression, and alleviate the symptoms of depression. It reduces the level of stress, anxiety and encourages good mood. Running and other physical activities, promote the release of the hormone of happiness.
Run is free, affordable and all you need are good sneakers and a strong will. Remember that every beginning is difficult. Your body will need a few weeks to get used to running, especially if you are not in good shape. Every day, it will be easier for you. There is a high probability that you will be addicted to running. Namely, scientists have found in a research that running stimulates so much positive brain activity that people after some time become addicted.
Discover what is happening to your body in just 30 minutes of running, do your body a favor and start running!
The first few seconds
Your muscles begin to use adenosine triphosphate, which is the main source of energy inside the cell. The cell can only work normally when there is sufficient amount of adenosine trifosctate available.
The first 90 seconds
To release as much adenosine triphosphate as possible, the cells begin to break down glycogen, a form of glucose that builds the muscles. The cells will use glucose in your bloodstream, which is why exercise is good for lowering your blood sugar levels.
Your body starts to use more and more glucose. The muscles begin to release lactic acid, which sends signals to the brain that you are under physical stress.
The next few minutes
Your heart starts to pump blood faster and directs it to the muscles. Much less blood directs in the parts of the body that are not needed at the moment, such as the digestive system.
To get the most out of glucose, muscles require increased oxygen levels, resulting in fast and painful breathing.
Running activates the largest muscle of the body – gluteus maximus (your butt). It also activates the leg and abdominal muscles that help you with upright posture and movement control. You are starting to lose calories and fat stores.
The consumption of glycogen and increased oxygen intake will raise the body temperature. To cool down, the body begins to direct the blood towards your skin, which is why redness occurs. There is sweating that effectively cools the body.
Next 10 minutes
If you are in a decent form, your muscles and their supply with adenosine triphosphate are enough to keep running. Your body can effectively transmit oxygen and consume fat and sugar.
If you are weak in body condition, supply with adenosine triphosphate is not enough to keep your muscles safe. The muscles can not get oxygen quickly enough, and lactic acid is getting more and more free. Every minute will be more difficult.
After 30 minutes
It’s finally over. With the running switch to walking, the energy starts to drop, and breathing gradually becomes normal.
You probably feel great and have a great energy level. Your brain releases hormone dopamine. You are very likely to eat something sweet. Do not worry because glycogen consumes glucose molecules, so the intake of calories will not turn into fat, but into a source of energy.
