Dose of Jogging and Long-term Mortality
How much running do you need to do, in order to gain the maximum benefit by way of lowest mortality risk?
In the Copenhagen City Heart Study, just published, 1,098 healthy joggers and 3,950 healthy non-joggers have been prospectively followed up since 2001 regression back analysis was done and it was found that those with the least risk were those who ran at an easy pace, 2-3 times a week for about 2.5 hours per week.
Our Sofa to 5K program and book is designed to do just that. Get a sedentary non runners out from the sofa and teach him to run a 5K distance at an easy pace in a 8 week plan.
If a non runner takes up our plan he will start reaping all the beneficial effects of running in a easy structured manner.
Our mission is ‘to promote running for good health’ and having the lowest mortality rate is the best way to reap the health benefits of running.
