Running A Marathon

September 3rd, 2014 — 10:13am

People have developed the recent fad that running a marathon will actually help reduce weight while on the contrary more than half the number of people participating in their first race has reportedly gained weight.

Facts have revealed that only forty sic percent of the total competitors in their first ever marathon have actually lost some weight. The main reason for this might be that long distance runners do not pay very good attention to their diet and indulge in more drinking and eating more than their regular capacity hoping that they have ‘burnt enough calories’ and end up adding more pounds. The majority have revealed that even though they were better in shape physically, the scales revealed that they have put on more weight. This has made people disappointed as some of them reportedly expected more visible results. Good news from the rest forty two percent who exercise at least five to six times a week have reported of satisfying weight loss.

Also weight loss was more appreciable for those sections of the people who teamed up their marathon running participation and training with a religious visit to the gym, though bizarrely one runner put his weight loss down to a holiday doing yacht chartering in Largs

The main reason for this might be that long distance runners do not pay very good attention to their diet and indulge in more drinking and eating more than their regular capacity hoping that they have ‘burnt enough calories’ and end up adding more pounds. This is because they feel they have ‘earned’ their fast foods, snacks, and alcohol after their dose of exercising. “These people feel that they have done enough for the day and end up taking in more calories than they have burnt off,” researchers have revealed. This notion needs to change. Exercising teamed with proper diet is a necessity if one wants to check their pounds.

Longer Running Can Damage Heart

June 22nd, 2014 — 11:59pm

With so much hype around the world for marathon running, health experts have said that running for long period of time, especially marathon like races can cause serious cardiac ailments to people. Once cropped up, these maladies can sustain for a lifetime period, warn the physicians. Acceding to a recent survey, those who are eyeing to get a leaner look by taking part in several marathon race events often end up with having pacemakers when they start aging and the number of such people is increasing with each day, say the doctors. Funded by the British Heart Foundation, this study was initially tested on mice, it showed that excessive running may bring changes in body but also affects the electrical pulse rate of the heart, at the same time, it also causes the super fit to suffer from various abnormal heart rhythms. Athletes who have taken retirement after being involved in sports like marathon are often being diagnosed with either rapid or erratic heartbeat which is medically termed as arrhythmias.

According to scientists molecular changes in the heart due to excessive training cause such problems if not diagnosed in time, it can lead to serious heart ailments and even death. For normal adults the ideal heart beat should be around 60-100 per minute. But for the marathon athletes this calculation changes hugely and comes to around 30 per minute. Danger comes when this rate goes down further at night. Similar problems are often faced by the cyclists also. Famous cyclists like Miguel Indurain and Sir Chris Hoy, were diagnosed with really low heart beats. Both the athletes never had more than 28 heart beat per minute when they took retirement from their game. Scientists say that running affect the nervous system of the body and it is the nervous system which is responsible for control of heat’s pacemaker.
