The Mommy Milkshake Run 2016 by Mommy Mundo

The last race I ran was probably six or seven years ago. At my age now (going 42 in a few months), I feel that I need to get back into some form of fitness routine. Then I got the email inviting me to join this year’s Mommy Milkshake Run. I felt that it will be perfect to ease me back into running.

Running and weight loss

Running is probably the most ‘in’ sport these days, with running events held almost every Sunday for the next two months. Yep, running calendars are full!

Running not only makes you ‘in’ (if that’s the reason why you do certain things). It’s also a great way to lose weight. In fact, running at 9 kph (5 mph) for an hour will burn about 560 calories.

Studies have shown that high-intensity exercises such as interval sprinting burn fat more than aerobic exercise. It’s how I lost five pounds last year! Read my blog entry on interval sprints here.

There is no quick weight loss – I’ve learned that the hard way. If you want to lose weight and keep it off for good, it’s going to take a bit of hard work. 😉
