We give you five reasons why Chatty Sparkly Running works counting down to the most important of all.
Number 5 Chatty Running Lets Progress Happen

Number 3 Chatty Running is Enjoyable
It treats your body gently. It’s not about hard work as we have too much hard work and stress in our lives. Forget the ‘no pain no gain’ adage. Your body responds best to being treated gently. If you ‘bash’ it each time you go out for a run it will soon break down. You only need to do a little more running than you are used to in order to improve and because it’s enjoyable you will want to do more.
Number 2 Chatty Running Makes You Keep Running Gently
Chatty running allows you to keep it relaxed because you run at a comfortable conversational pace. If you can’t talk walk. It’s very important that you walk if you can’t run at a Chatty pace but don’t worry you will soon find that you can run if you keep up the walking. Make sure that your breathing is hardly perceptible. If you can feel a marked intake of breath at the end of a sentence you are working a little to hard. Slow the pace and make sure you run in a relaxed, fun way.
Ignore the idea that gentle running is nothing more than ‘junk miles’. Any extra exercise you do will get you fitter and is not ‘junk miles’. Run faster and you will get too tired and this can lead to illness and injury.
