Too Much Running Linked to Shorter Lifespans
STUDY: Too Much Running Linked to Shorter Lifespans
Health officials have been preaching for years that we should exercise more.
Well, not all exercise is created equal – and you can definitely overdo it.
For example, a new study says that running too much can actually lead to a shorter lifespan.
Researchers found that the “sweet spot” for running is a slow to moderate pace for a total of about 2.5 hours each week – about two or three sessions each week.
Anything more than that creates too much wear and tear on the body and starts to do more harm than good. (CBS News)
