As a runner, it is reassuring to read about the benefits of running.
As with all areas of human performance, there are more and more studies available that should nudge us towards being regular exercisers. See the article below - it pulls together quite a few recent studies.
I strongly encourage the leaders I work with to become habitual exercisers; it’s good for them, and it’s good for the people they work with.
I’ve always enjoyed running above most other forms of exercise - but there’s something about the simplicity, speed (well, that’s a relative term…) and sense of exploration.
