  •   Exercise is good for us to build our bodies. It helps coordinate the different parts of our bodies when we have sports. For example, we must try our best to coordinate the movements of the arms and legs when we play basketball, or we won’t be able to shoot the basket. Exercise also benefits our organs. It lets the heart beat faster than usual, and then helps enlarge the blood vessels to protect us from heart attacks.
  •   Exercise can also contribute to the development of our ability to response agilely. For instance, when you play table- tennis, you must try to reflect as quickly as you can so that you may fight back at the right position at the fight moment.
  •   Exercise can also contribute to improving our mood. When you do exercise, you move a lot, and you have to be more active. It helps you become more optimistic.
  •   Exercise will fill your life with various contents and make it more colorful.
  •   What’s more, exercise will help you get rid of your inertia. If you keep doing exercise regularly, you will never be a lazy person. Therefore, exercise has great effect on one’s character.
  •  In a word, exercise is helpful, important and absolutely necessary.


  •   Running is a popular kind of exercise. Because it can bring us many advantages. First it can build up our strength and make us healthy. Second it can get rid of our pressure and make us relaxed. Third it can prevent diseases and make us keep fit. Finally it can also exercise our patience. In a word ,running is a wonderful form of exercise. If you are involved in it ,you can get more pleasure.


  •   Drizzle, coupled with the mood is not very good, don’t want to do any game.
  •   Took a friend running around the playground, a circle, a circle, and, without knowing it, have good mood.
  •   Cry in the heart, the rain ah, right, bottom, again big point, again big point!
  •   Seems god heard my expectations, the rain gradually big, raindrops pat in the body, soon, the hair has been impregnated with rain, but my friends and I all felt is very exciting, we look at one another, is very happy. Then began to play.
  •  In this way, we dozen, alarm, laughing and running in the rain for 45 minutes.


  •    Every morning, I will wake up early and then do some exercise. I like running very much, so I will run around my house. Running on the street and park, I can see the city in its morning face, the street is so quiet, some people are dancing, some are walking. I enjoy running in the morning, I feel so comfortable, I feel life is easy and happy.


  •          Exercise is a good pastime. When we are bored, we can use the motion to myself and make happy eliminate stress. And, with movement of the interest, also can avoid all other improper entertainment. Exercise can make the body stronger with each passing day, spirit, cultivate good fitness, also can improve the body’s resistance, make our health has the vigor. Someone said: “healthy beggar, rather than sick king”. So I’m going to exercise everyday, persistence not by fits and starts.
      A good variety of campaign: play, running, climbing, hiking… , I like riding a bicycle – can improve bone, muscle development; Swimming – can help the blood circulation, enhance the cardiopulmonary function.

  •   Whether you already have a regular running routine or you’ve been meaning to start one, consider these 5 benefits of running in the morning. While running is widely considered to be one of the best ways lose weight and stay healthy, very few people talk about when to do it. Here are five ways in which running in the morning can benefit you:
  •   1.Weight-loss: One of the primary reasons regular runners pound the pavement is to burn calories and to lose weight. Some experts, however, believe that running on an empty stomach in the morning burns more calories than any other time of the day. This has to do with two things: if your body’s metabolism gets turned on early, it keeps going longer, thus burning off more fat. Secondly, if you run on an empty stomach, your body is forced to use the energy that is most available to it at the time, which on an empty stomach is your body’s store of fat. Make running your first activity of the day if you want to amp up those weight-loss benefits.
  •   2.Peace of mind: Most runners will agree that running helps clear the mind and get those creative juices flowing. Problems are solved and ideas are born as the road glides along under your feet. This probably has to do with the release of hormones called endorphins, which have a peaceful, calming, and refreshing effect on your mind and body. So why not kick in those powerful endorphins early in the day? If you know you’re going to have a rough day ahead of you, a good way to preemptively combat those stresses is to run in the morning. Try it out; you might just find that your work day seems a lot less stressful than it usually is.
  •   3.No excuses: By running in the morning, all of the typical excuses for not exercising (e.g. a lack of time, being too tired after work, or missing happy hour with your buddies) can be put to rest. Now those after-work hours can be used to take care of errands or loaf on your sofa, completely guilt-free. Getting your exercise done first thing in the morning also gives you that jump start you need to keep moving throughout the day, which helps rid you of excuses for other important tasks that you would normally not feel like doing.
  •   4.Less pollution: Among the many benefits of running in the morning is getting out on the road before the cars and busses beat you to it. The exhaust left behind from vehicles can increase the risk of heart disease and cancer, so slip on your jogging shoes in the early morning if you want to breathe in the cleanest air possible.
  •   5.Go farther: There is no doubt about it; the air is not only cleaner, but also much cooler before the sun’s rays have begun to bake the road under your feet. Running in the morning is the best way to avoid hot weather, heat stroke, and stifling humidity. Runners that exercise in a cool climate can often run longer and go farther than those who work out in the heat.
  •   Now set your alarm clocks tonight because these benefits of running in the morning are worth waking up early for.

  •    The first time I ran, like really ran, was during middle school gym class. It took me 11 minutes and 47 seconds to finish a mile. I’ve been running ever since.
  •   Running is the kind of thing where you put in the time and expect to see results, and let me be the first to tell you: It is supremely discouraging when you don’t. It’s discouraging when you run a five-mile race with your entire family and come in a solid 15 minutes behind everyone else, and it’s discouraging when that time is no faster or slower than your five-mile time five years ago.
  •   And yet, my alarm is already set for 6 a.m. tomorrow, even though it’s probably going to be rainy and definitely going to be cold and even though most of the time, I really hate running.
  •   Don’t ask me why. All I know is this: As much as I hate running, I love being a runner.
  •   There’s some kind of camaraderie between people who spend more money each year on running shoes than on all their other shoes combined, and there’s some fundamental similarity between people who can cross 10 miles without pausing.
  •   On days that I run, I exert myself purely for exertion’s sake. If you run too, you get why.
  •   When you’re a runner, your people are the girls with hair elastics on their wrists and the boys with shorts shorter than yours. They might be better, faster or stronger than you, but you belong with them.
  •   It took me almost 10 years of plodding along at an 11-minute mile before I realized that I could call myself a runner, no matter how slow I go or how many races I lose.
  •   I’ve laced up my shoes at least once a week since the first day I stepped foot on a track in middle school. Some weeks it’s every day, some weeks it’s not. Some days, I’ll barely go more than a mile, and some days, I’ll walk more than I jog. I may not have medals, but I have fresh air, time alone, and creaky knees and tight quads.
  •  For me, that’s enough. I run, so I am a runner.

Running and health

  •     Jogging for just an hour a week can increase your life expectancy by around six years, reveal scientists.
  •     Even better news is that a gentle jog is better for you than any sort of extreme workout, the study concludes.
  •  The results challenge previous studies into jogging which questioned whether it is healthy or hazardous, with the debate kicking off in the 70s when middle aged men began taking an interest in the exercise. However, following the death of a few men who died while out on a run, the media suggested jogging might be too strenuous for middle aged people, casting doubts over the past-time.
  •     As part of the Copenhagen City Heart study, a cardiovascular study of around 20,000 men and women aged 20 to 93, researchers set about quashing previous suggestions that jogging is bad for people’s health. The study has so far resulted in over 750 papers, and has previously explored associations for longevity with different forms of exercise and other factors. Researchers believe jogging delivers multiple health benefits, improving oxygen uptake, lowering blood pressure, preventing obesity, improving cardiac function and improving psychological function, as well as many more benefits.

  •         THE runner’s high: Every athlete has heard of it, most seem to believe in it and many say they have experienced it. But for years scientists have reserved judgment because no rigorous test confirmed its existence.
  •   Yes, some people reported that they felt so good when they exercised that it was as if they had taken mood-altering drugs. But was that feeling real or just a delusion? And even if it was real, what was the feeling supposed to be, and what caused it?
  •   Some who said they had experienced a runner’s high said it was uncommon. They might feel relaxed or at peace after exercising, but only occasionally did they feel euphoric. Was the calmness itself a runner’s high?
  •   Often, those who said they experienced an intense euphoria reported that it came after an endurance event.
  •   My friend Marian Westley said her runner’s high came at the end of a marathon, and it was paired with such volatile emotions that the sight of a puppy had the power to make her weep.
  •   Others said they experienced a high when pushing themselves almost to the point of collapse in a short, intense effort, such as running a five-kilometer race.
  •   But then there are those like my friend Annie Hiniker, who says that when she finishes a 5-k race, the last thing she feels is euphoric. “I feel like I want to throw up,” she said.
  •   The runner’s-high hypothesis proposed that there were real biochemical effects of exercise on the brain. Chemicals were released that could change an athlete’s mood, and those chemicals were endorphins, the brain’s naturally occurring opiates. Running was not the only way to get the feeling; it could also occur with most intense or endurance exercise.
  •   The problem with the hypothesis was that it was not feasible to do a spinal tap before and after someone exercised to look for a flood of endorphins in the brain. Researchers could detect endorphins in people’s blood after a run, but those endorphins were part of the body’s stress response and could not travel from the blood to the brain. They were not responsible for elevating one’s mood. So for more than 30 years, the runner’s high remained an unproved hypothesis.
  •   But now medical technology has caught up with exercise lore. Researchers in Germany, using advances in neuroscience, report in the current issue of the journal Cerebral Cortex that the folk belief is true: Running does elicit a flood of endorphins in the brain. The endorphins are associated with mood changes, and the more endorphins a runner’s body pumps out, the greater the effect.
  •   Leading endorphin researchers not associated with the study said they accepted its findings.
  •   “Impressive,” said Dr. Solomon Snyder, a neuroscience professor at Johns Hopkins and a discoverer of endorphins in the 1970’s.
  •   “I like it,” said Huda Akil, a professor of neurosciences at the University of Michigan. “This is the first time someone took this head on. It wasn’t that the idea was not the right idea. It was that the evidence was not there.”
  •   For athletes, the study offers a sort of vindication that runner’s high is not just a New Agey excuse for their claims of feeling good after a hard workout.
  •   For athletes and nonathletes alike, the results are opening a new chapter in exercise science. They show that it is possible to define and measure the runner’s high and that it should be possible to figure out what brings it on. They even offer hope for those who do not enjoy exercise but do it anyway. These exercisers might learn techniques to elicit a feeling that makes working out positively addictive.
  •   The lead researcher for the new study, Dr. Henning Boecker of the University of Bonn, said he got the idea of testing the endorphin hypothesis when he realized that methods he and others were using to study pain were directly applicable.
  •   The idea was to use PET scans combined with recently available chemicals that reveal endorphins in the brain, to compare runners’ brains before and after a long run. If the scans showed that endorphins were being produced and were attaching themselves to areas of the brain involved with mood, that would be direct evidence for the endorphin hypothesis. And if the runners, who were not told what the study was looking for, also reported mood changes whose intensity correlated with the amount of endorphins produced, that would be another clincher for the argument.
  •   Dr. Boecker and colleagues recruited 10 distance runners and told them they were studying opioid receptors in the brain. But the runners did not realize that the investigators were studying the release of endorphins and the runner’s high. The athletes had a PET scan before and after a two-hour run. They also took a standard psychological test that indicated their mood before and after running.
  •   The data showed that, indeed, endorphins were produced during running and were attaching themselves to areas of the brain associated with emotions, in particular the limbic and prefrontal areas.
  •   The limbic and prefrontal areas, Dr. Boecker said, are activated when people are involved in romantic love affairs or, he said, “when you hear music that gives you a chill of euphoria, like Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3.” The greater the euphoria the runners reported, the more endorphins in their brain.
  •   “Some people have these really extreme experiences with very long or intensive training,” said Dr. Boecker, a casual runner and cyclist, who said he feels completely relaxed and his head is clearer after a run.
  •   That was also what happened to the study subjects, he said: “You could really see the difference after two hours of running. You could see it in their faces.”
  •   In a follow-up study, Dr. Boecker is investigating if running affects pain perception. “There are studies that showed enhanced pain tolerance in runners,” he said. “You have to give higher pain stimuli before they say, ‘O.K., this hurts.’ ”
  •   And, he said, there are stories of runners who had stress fractures, even heart attacks, and kept on running.
  •   Dr. Boecker and his colleagues have recruited 20 marathon runners and a similar number of nonathletes and are studying the perception of pain after a run, and whether there are related changes in brain scans. He is also having the subjects walk to see whether the effects, if any, are because of the intensity of the exercise.
  •   The nonathletes can help investigators assess whether untrained people experience the same effects. Maybe one reason some people love intense exercise and others do not is that some respond with a runner’s high or changed pain perception.
  •   Annie might question that. She loves to run, but wonders why. But her husband tells her that the look on her face when she is running is just blissful. So maybe even she gets a runner’s high.


  •        I like many kinds of sports, such as swimming, running, table-tennis and badminton. But I like running most. Running is a good activity for people to keep healthy and relieve pressures. Besides, it’s very easy for me to running. I can run in the morning or after class. And I can run alone. I don’t have to find a partner to run with me. After running, I always feel good and relaxed. It has become a part of my life.
