• “He ran each of the 3 marathon races in about 5 and a half hours”? Does that imply that he had run 3 marathon races in 5 and a half hours?

    Best answer: The use of "each" implies that every one of the marathons was run in approximately 5.5 hours; for a total time of 16.5 hours.

    If the 5.5 hours was referring to a combined time then the word "all" would have been used - assuming someone could somehow run that far in such a short time.

  • Where can i put my big *** phone when i go jogging?

    Best answer: Lol @ scratching screen (and ew).

    What about one of those armbands? They're made especially for that reason and are supposed to hold a phone and "easy" to use.

    Most sport stores will have them. Even better if there are specialty running stores (we have one in our city - the running room)

  • I am looking to start regular running. I will use a treadmill mainly. I am 44, unfit but well. Anybody have a suggested program to follow?

    Best answer: Start out slowly, and gradually add time or distance.

    Best answer: Start out slowly, and gradually add time or distance. In his book "Lore Of Running" (3rd edition), Dr. Tim Noakes cites a study that shows an increased chance of injury among beginning runners at about 9 weeks. He developed a training program designed to reduce injury risk among new runners training for a marathon. This starts with walking 20 minutes every other day. The walking is gradually replaced with running.

  • Running suddenly is difficult?

  • What are the best, affordable, and stylish sneakers for running on the treadmill and working out?

    Best answer: You don't want to go too cheap when it comes to running shoes or they will wear out quickly and possibly fall apart if you're doing a lot of running.

    Best answer: You don't want to go too cheap when it comes to running shoes or they will wear out quickly and possibly fall apart if you're doing a lot of running. A good shoe should last you at least 6 months to about year (depending on how often you're running), it shouldn't be too flexible, it should allow your feet to breath, also it should fit and feel comfortable to you.
    Personally I like Asics, they can be a bit pricey so wait until they go on sale, find an outlet store or see if they have any thing in the clearance area.
    If you're just starting running then would start with a pair like Rebocks which can be cheaper then Asics but they're still a good shoe and should last you at least a year. Once you start getting foot pain or shin splints it may be time to replace your shoes.

  • Is it ok to take my 7.5 year old daughter hiking for 12 KM (around 8 miles) ?

    Best answer: If she is not used to hiking that long distance, DON'T
    You need to work up to it and see if she likes it. I'd try a 3-5km hike first and see if that's too much for her. Do it on a path where you can always head back to the car if she gets tired along the way

  • Is it better to run on a treadmill or run on an indoor track?

    Best answer: Better to go outside if possible, but when not possible I like treadmills if they can vary the incline and speed. One can get a better workout with some diversity.
