Running makes for great exercise and keeps your heart healthy, but overdoing it by running more than an hour per day, or running multiple marathons, can actually shorten your life, according to a recent editorial in the journal Heart.
This article points out that we should never take our workouts too extremes. Although running is great exercise, running too much can actually hurt your health rather than help it. However, running too much can have just as negative health effects as not running at all. Doctors say that it becomes unhealthy when you run more than an hour a day or when you run multiple marathons. Like a glass of wine can be good for your heart, everything is good in moderation. We must be careful not to overdo it.
