WELLBEING RUNNING

BEAUTY // April 15th 2014

So recently I started running. Previously I use to do it a lot but in the recent years I’ve primarily been going to the gym. But after getting a dog and having a fulltime job, I just finder it harder and harder to spare those extra hours for the gym. And therefore I felt like running was the right exercise to go for – especially since I most often can run home from work. But I didn’t know how to get started - fortunately running coach ANNE HVIID (she's is freaking cool - check out her Instagram, username below) was there to help – and now I signed up for Copenhagen's Women's Race in June. Fortunately the great Anne is here for you too. Here are her tips and pointers for getting those legs going.

 

How do I start? To get the best start, I think you should set up a goal. The goal can be a specific race, a faster time or just to get out and run 2-3 times weekly. And then of course a training program that commits.

 

How often and how long should I run?Be careful in the beginning. The risks of injuries are high if you push your body too much. The body must be built to run. 2-4 times a week, depending on whether you are a new or a more experienced runner.

 

How do I keep myself motivated?Specific goals are always motivational. Meeting up in a running club and sharing your experience with others is always a good idea. Or signing up for a race is always a way to keep you going.  

 

How do I beat the boredom? Socialize on the run or listen to your favourite music. I've even heard of some who like to listen to books while they run.

 

Is it better to run in the morning or at night? You should definitely test and figure out what works for you. Some feel most comfortable running in the morning, while others have the best feeling at night. So figure it and fit it into your everyday life.

 

 Is it better to run alone or with others? It varies. I like to run with others. Because of the social element and that you are able to push yourself even further while running with others.

 

Can I lose weight? Yes, but it often requires more than just running. If you combine it with a healthy lifestyle, then you can easily lose weight. Running is a very effective way to burn calories. When you activate the major muscle groups of the body, you use loads of energy.

 

Is it enough to run – or should I lift some weights too?
Lifting weights are always a good idea as it makes the body more responsive to running. Do it a couple of times weekly.

 

Any greats run I should participate in this summer?There are loads of great races in Copenhagen, but if you want to try a 10k run, the Copenhagen 10 K Women's Run on June 15th is a must. It’s so much fun.

 

Five essentials for running?

& OTHER STORIES BODY SCRUB

BEAUTY // April 14th 2014

Hands down one of the best body scrubs I ever tried. Why you might ask? I simply love the almost whipped-cream-like-texture that really polishes the skin but in a delicate way. Also it leaves your skin with the most amazing scent of tiger orchid and lotus flower. Yours for only 9 euros. Such a bargain.

 

Buy the Punk Bouquet Body Scrub from & Other Stories here.

 

Helt ærligt en af de bedste body scrubs jeg nogensinde har prøvet. Hvorfor spørger du så nu? Jamen, fordi den har en næsten flødeskumslignende tekstur, der virkelig skrubber huden på en meget forsigtig måde plus den efterlader din hud med den mest fantastiske duft af orkide og lotusblomst. Og så koster den kun 75 kr.
