Are you trying to think of something romantic to do on Valentine's day? Something that will get you and your partner in the mood for LOVE? Something that will get your hearts beating fast, muscles twitching, palms sweating and give you both a feeling of euphoria?
GO FOR A RUN TOGETHER!!
Why is running so romantic?
It warms your body up for other romantic activities:
Running is a fantastic cardiovascular workout. It increases your blood flow, which carries oxygen, hormones, and nutrients to all tissues and cells. This increase in blood flow, to all parts of your body, helps to enhance sensations and aids muscles in performing at their best, during other activities.....
It is a natural mood enhancer:
Running decreases the stress related hormone cortisol and increases the feel good hormones called endorphins. This blissful feeling can last for hours after your run. So running together will put you in the mood better than a box of chocolate! And it burns calories too!
It increases self esteem :
Running helps you feel good about yourself. It makes you feel strong and confident in the way your body looks and moves.
It is a great bonding time:
Running together bonds you with your partner in a very special, intimate way. It is challenging and fun. It gives you an opportunity to support each other and share common goals and achievements.
Long slow runs are fantastic times to talk about important things that you might not have an opportunity to bring up during your daily routine. They are also perfect times for sharing some great laughs!
When you run together you create an intimate space and time for just the two of you. You can use it as a way to escape the world together, even if you just have a short time to spare!
So if you are looking for something romantic to do on Valentine's Day with your partner, why not go for a run together? You can always redeem your massage coupons when your done!
Id love to hear if you like to run with your significant other and how that enhances your relationship.
