I much prefer road running. I've read in running mags that the risk on your knees of road running is really urban myth and is not supported by medical evidence. I read about a very long term medical trial that showed no difference between the knees of marathoners who run on roads, XC runners and people who don't run at all. I've looked for this report online but can't find it. You can find it in the last issue of Canadian Running mag.

There's not much that you can do about the foot injury but the hammy and calf injuries can be avoided by proper stretching and not overextending yourself.

Yeah they are. I usually pretty much am zoned out when i run and the trails near our school has a lot of roots that stick out, and some uneven parts that have been washed out.
The calf/hamstring problems are from stretching. We do stretch out well but usually our coach doesnt start our workout until about 5 minutes after the stretch usually for one reason or another. I usually I try to keep stretching until we start. I prefer running on the road most of the time too. I usually try to run through these injuries and that is when the real problems start. :-/

10 years ago:
Home to First --> 3.8 sec
100m --> 11.0 sec
200m --> 21.9 sec

It'd probably take me double that now. The things baseball (catching in particular) do with your body.
He once hit a ball between my legs so hard that my center-fielder caught it on the fly backing up against the wall.

If Satch (Paige) and I were pitching on the same team, we would clinch the pennant by July fourth and go fishing until World Series time.

This weekend, we had our biggest race of the year. Basically every team in the state goes. There were 60+ teams, and 1000+ runners, split into 6 races. Everyone went out insanely fast trying not to get boxed in. It is basically a 100 meter sprint across a football field then a huge bottleneck. It was insane. About 300 meters in some kid ahead of me tried to sneak into the woods to pass someone and he dragged a branch out with him, and I tripped on it and went down straight on my thigh and shoulder. I almost got trampled , had to spin around and get up and finish the 5k. It sucked :-P

Reading the golf thread I thought that I would dig up this old thread. I have a dislocated shoulder so I have to give up golf for the summer and all I'm doing is running.

I ran a big race on the weekend - Acura 10 mile in Toront0. Did it in 1hour 18. I'm doing at least 40m up to 50 miles per week and I'm running 2 marathons in Sept and Oct. I've found out that the more you run the more you want to run more. I have to get out every night now. :-°

That's not what I found out when I was running more frequently. I'd run, get done, and wonder why the hell do I do this to myself? :-b !+)

I hate running. Gave it up a while ago for biking. It's much easier on the joints, and I enjoy it a whole lot more.

I agree 100% - you couldn't get me off my bike to run at this point, no matter how hard you tried! And, I like being able to cover 22-25 miles in the same time it takes to run 8-9 :-D

I love running. Nothing comes close in terms of cardio for me. I do about 4-5 miles around Balboa Park and La Costa Ave, 4 times a week.

I average about 9 min/mi so I'm not running super fast or anything. I just like to get nice and sweaty especially after a long night of drinking.

I'm completly addicted to running at Runyon Canyon in the Hollywood Hills. It's trail running, you can take your dog but she/he better be in good shape. I've had to practically drag mine out of the canyon a couple times. Aside from getting a fantastic workout, you can see the entire city of LA from Glendale to Santa Monica Beach from up top. Last weeks episode of Entourage featured a scene where some hot chick was running the canyon. Speaking of which, the fact that tons of pr0n stars and other assorted beauties go there regularly really helps you keep up the pace.

Yeah, I'll get to the point where I have no idea where I am sometimes, which is actually a lot of fun. I live in the northwest corner of Rhode Island, so oftentimes I'll make it into 3 states in one bike ride. B-)

Totally agree. There is nothing more effective in working off a hangover than a nice sweaty workout. As painful as it might be to get started, you feel like a million bucks when you're done... ;-D
