    "Thank you for a tremendous job. Through all three parts of the work I've had done this year, Reilly has come across as total classy organization. I appreciated the professionalism and courtesy of your entire crew, and of course your good humor added to the enjoyment of what could have been a real inconvenience. My neighbors are the kind of people who ask, and I'll tell them all--with a plethora of rapturous and ecstatic enthusiasm--that I couldn't have been more pleased."

    Are you starting to run more? Why wouldn't you? Save money by not going to the gym, and get more outdoors time! Take a look at what Zen Fitness has to offer. Some great tips and advice for new time runners!

    At the moment I am keeping things simple, I keep runs short and only run when I feel like it. Thats it two simple rules. So in terms of keeping runs short I normally have them hover around 20-30 minutes, this seems to be the optimum time in which I enjoy the run and still get in a flow and feel a benefit from it.In terms of running when I feel like it, this makes things irregular – sometimes I can feel like running once a week, other times twice. To be honest though it is rarely more than that.

    Try these two rules yourself, listen to your body – see when and for how long you really feel like running. Never run for the sake of it, or because you feel like you should run in order to make up for something. Try to take nice routes and enjoy the scenery. I believe one of the biggest benefits of running is getting outdoors, taking in the world and flushing your lungs with fresh air. Running is also an excellent simulator of the lymphatic system due to the rhythmic movement which stimulates the immune system.

    How to Run

    Start slow. Take things at your own pace. This guide to running 5K is a great place for any runner to start, it will give you a plan to start running and build up to a level which allows you to run 5K without stopping or at a good pace.

    Don’t be afraid to mix walks into your runs. In fact I recommend people who are just starting up to run for 5 minutes then walk for 5 minutes and repeat this cycle twice. It is a good beginners 20 minute workout. Run at your own pace and in comfortable clothing

    No fancy equipment required. I like to run to music and use a simple device which just allows me to listen to a small selection of tracks and can be clipped on clothing. Listening to music while running is a great thing for those of us living in a more urban environment– people who have the luxury of jogging in peace and quiet can enjoy the sounds of nature while running.
