Running is one of the best ways for a person to lose weight. Not everyone is a natural athlete. Many people cannot run that fast especially if they have no ran in a long time. There are some tips on how to run faster and run for weight loss. The faster a person runs the more calories they are able to burn.
Before a person can increase their current speed they need to figure out how faster they are running to begin with. A person should use a stopwatch and monitor the time it takes them to run a mile. Over the course of the time a person should monitor the progress that they are making. If a person knows how fast they are running they can set a number of short time goals for improvement. For example if a person runs a mile in 10 minutes a short term goal would be to run the same mile in 8 minutes. Once they reach this goal they can aim for 6 minutes. This will allow a person to track the progress they are making. If they known what they are starting out at they will notice the progress they make as they train the body to run faster.
