How Long Should I Play Sports In The Sun?

How Long Should I Play Sports In The Sun? Summer is a time that encourages us to relax, but also to improve our health and our physique, so we choose to play sports. However, there are some risks of playing sports in the sun that you should consider before thinking about how long you should play sports under those circumstances. Read the following note: Being able to reach temperatures above 30 °, it can be difficult to do sports outdoors. This entails certain risks that must be taken into account, such as: 1. Solar Radiation. There is a risk to do sports in the sun due to the high solar radiation that exists on these dates, especially between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm. Being exposed to solar radiation for a long time can increase the risk of developing skin cancer, especially when it creates injuries such as burns. It helps a lot to use sunscreen to reduce this risk, but it is recommended to do sports as far away as possible at noon. It is also advisable to look for alternativ

My running journey from 0 km to 5 km

                My running journey started in 2017, when I started facing minor health glitches. In 2016, I went for my medical check-up and I also want to have a medical certificate, which is mandatory for Schengen Visa processing as I had an official trip planned for Sweden. I gave a blood sample for tests and after the report came, I couldn't believe that I have high cholesterol and thyroid. I went to another hospital for my check-up and got the same report there also. Till then I was always thinking that I will never suffer with this kind of disease as I was a sports person during my school days. But I forgot one thing that after 2010 I stopped all my games and exercises.

            After that I was very much distressed and started thinking about my health. I started walking daily then one day I saw one person running, when I was walking on the road. I also tried to run but was not able to run even for 500 meters and stopped

            From the next day onward, I planned and decided to run slowly and after 2 weeks I was able to run for 1 km without any break. I continued my running and in 1 month able to run 2 km without any break from this I got confidence and continued my running and in 3 months of practice I was able to run for 5 km without any break.


            One day in the newspaper I saw one ad about a running event called 'Bhumi India Run' which was going to start from Jawaharlal Nehru stadium of Chennai. I registered for that event on 7th April 2017, just 2 days before that event. I was still thinking that I was able to complete the 5 km run or not. Running event was on 9th April 2017.

            On 9th April 2017 I woke up around 3 am and started from home at around 3:30 am with my family as they also want to come with me for a cheer-up. It took 1 hr for us to reach at event place and we reached around 4:30 am.

Finish Point

            After reaching I collected my t-shirt and bib from them, then I wore my t-shirt and tied Bib in front of the t-shirt. Around 5 am Jumba started, which was arranged to warm up all runners before running. I enjoyed Jumba and then started the 5 km run, the race started exactly at 5:30 am. As it was my first run, I started running slowly. I was still thinking I would be able to complete it or not. But finally, I was able to complete my first 5 Km run. It took around 45 - 50 minutes for me to complete. After reaching the finishing point, I got a medal and I was very happy with this. I spent some time there and took some photos, after spending some time I started for my home. After reaching home I took a rest.

Pic Post Run

            With this my regular running routine, my thyroid and cholesterol level also came down in 6 months. I was feeling healthier than early and able to concentrate more in my work.



            So, until we do not start anything, we are not able to reach the end point. I started and was able do it and now it's your turn. 

Guy's come on you can also do it; you are just away from the starting point.

Our bodies were designed to move 🚶‍♂️🏃‍♂️ If you want to live longer and better life, make a habit of going out for a daily walk, run or bike ride 🚶‍♂️🏃‍♂️🚴‍♂️


Stay Healthy, Stay Fit.
