Tuvizo Cautions Runners To Start Slowly
Tuvizo, reflective vest company, recently pointed out in a blog article that runners will have a greater chance to sustain their enthusiasm and get the most health benefits from it if they pace their run slowly, in the first few days or weeks of doing the
The Tuvizo Reflective Running Vest provides high visibility in the day and excellent reflective qualities at night for running, cycling, walking and other outdoor pursuits.
Jo Parker from Tuvizo advises, "One of the key reason people fail when starting a running program is that they start too fast. You muscles and tendons, as well as your heart need to get stronger and fitter slowly. "
The article strongly suggests that people who are past 40 years of age or who have led a mostly sedentary lifestyle prior to deciding to start running should consult with their doctors first.
Walking for 15 minutes during the first few days or weeks to get the body gradually accustomed to the heightened level of physical activity was identified as an effective initial activity. A casual survey of fitness and motivational literature on this subject shows that most training experts also favour the slow approach.
Famous author and personal effectiveness guru Leo Babauta at Zen Habits calls for people to "rein in their enthusiasm" and start really small. Running is not a one-time activity – to get the most out of it, it must become a lifestyle choice, something that a person should choose to do for life. If the runner spends all that enthusiasm in the first week, there will be nothing to sustain him or her over the long haul ahead.
Safety is also a consideration, the Tuvizo article urged readers to equip themselves with safety gear like reflective running vest to avoid any untoward incidents on the road. Proper techniques in warming up prior to exercise and cooling down afterwards should also be observed.
The important thing is to enjoy the run. Runners would do well to remember that they're out there improving their health and not punishing their bodies. It's hard to stick to an activity if there's no enjoyment involved in doing it, according to Zen Habits.
"Take your time and you will progress steadily, if you don't you can risk injury and disappointment. Good luck!" remarked Tuvizo's Jo Parker.
Tuvizo is a newly emerging company specializing in high visibility clothing primarily designed for use in outdoor fitness and leisure pursuits.
The company believes safety combined with user friendly design and functionality is paramount.
Tuvizo's newest product is a reflective vest.
