What If You Run for 24 Hours Without Stopping?

What If You Run for 24 Hours Without Stopping?

They say that a brisk walk a few times a week can do wonders for your body. Maybe you’ve tried to boost the cardio factor by turning your walks into runs. With some work, you’d be able to build up some serious endurance. But what if you ran for an entire day?

In 2015, Camille Herron set a world record by running 50 miles in about 5 and a half hours. Well, humans were built to run from an evolutionary standpoint (think of our ancestors chasing after their food) but does it mean that excessive running is healthy?

– Within the first 30 minutes, you’ll start burning any “bad” fat, since your body uses this and glucose from food for additional energy. While glucose is getting absorbed by your body, you’ll really start to “feel the burn” in your muscles.
– If you’re running for 3 hours, you’re probably training for a marathon. An extremely fit person could complete a marathon in 3 hours (which is about 26 miles.)
– If you’re training for a marathon, running 5 hours a day is a reasonable goal! A “fitness runner” could definitely finish a marathon in 5 hours.
– If you ran or worked out for 8 hours a day, you would so-to-speak “hit the wall” if you aren’t getting enough calories and protein from your diet.
– Unless you’ve been an experienced marathon runner for years, running 10 hours at a time is definitely excessive. If a non-runner just took off willy-nilly, we probably wouldn’t have enough endurance or muscle mass built up—we’d be very prone to injury.
– Abnormal lactic acid amounts in your body can cause an imbalance in your pH levels, which tell you how acidic your blood is. Too much acid in the blood can cause serious problems, including cardiovascular issues.
– A 15 hour run can seriously damage the cardiovascular and skeletal systems. When we burn all of our energy too quickly, it can cause plaque buildup in our arteries, and something called oxidative stress; this is essentially damage to your body’s cells.
– After a long race, experienced runners often feel a wide range of emotions: pure exhaustion down to the soul, tears, happiness, a break in the iron-clad willpower, or a tangled-up mix of emotions.
– If you run for 24 hours, all the benefits of a normal running session—increased bone density, muscle tone, increased lung capacity and endurance, elevated mood — will likely disappear.
– Keep in mind, only very experienced runners that are in optimum shape can run in extreme intervals of time like these (such as an Olympian or marathon runner).
