Does running shorten your life? This topic really GRINDS MY GEARS! Don't fall for this BS you may have read/heard. Here is what you really need to know.
Can Excessive Running Or Doing Too Much Endurance Exercise Shorten Your Lifespan?
What's The Basis Behind Running Shortening Lifespan?
There Is No Hard Research Demonstrating Running May Shorten Lifespan
The Copenhagen And Masters Running Studies
So the good news for us is even though some of these researchers in the headlines are saying running causes premature death or doing too much intensive, excessive endurance exercise leads to premature death, it's not really true because there's not a ton of evidence behind all these statements yet. We're not totally discounting it, but we just need to wait for more evidence to come out to find maybe what that threshold is.
So really, there's a lot of main points here. One, again, the media likes to sensationalize stuff all over the place. Don't buy into it without getting 100 percent of the facts. And here's the really the three main take home points. I'm an endurance athlete at heart. I love to train hard. I love to compete. I'm not gonna stop doing endurance exercise if it takes two years off my life. I'm really not built like that. It's more about quantity...no, more about quality over quantity for me.
