    I wear a regular workout tshirt and dark workout leggings so I'm not naked. I can't help but be creeped out by these men giving me attention while I'm running. I had a guy flirt with me near a stoplight and someone just stalked me recently. I don't get it I'm slim built so I don't have large breasts or butt. I carry mace with me at all times but I'm still scared however I try not to act scared and I'm thinking of carrying a knife on my runs.

  • Runners: I'm getting chills, body aches, and headache after long runs. Help?

    Best answer: I used to experience this a bit. I suspect you are either running too fast (not at a conversational pace), eating/taking a supplement of something that your body may not agree with ingesting before exercise, or you may be deficient of a substance such as Vitamin B12 or Iron. I personally think ALL runners... show more
    Best answer: I used to experience this a bit. I suspect you are either running too fast (not at a conversational pace), eating/taking a supplement of something that your body may not agree with ingesting before exercise, or you may be deficient of a substance such as Vitamin B12 or Iron. I personally think ALL runners (especially females) should take an iron supplement. I take 2 everyday. I also take a Vitamin B12 gummy vitamin everyday at night.

    Also, I suggest running more frequently than twice a week because your body really doesn't benefit from running any less than 3 times per week. With practice, the uncomfortable, sick feeling will go away like it did for me when I recently began training again after injury.

  • Will I die if I run 2 times a day everyday?

    Best answer: I like the answer from Steven S. Here is my version: You will die if you run twice a day, every day. You will die if you don't turn twice a day, every day. If you train properly, running may prolong your life. Whether it does or does not, you will have better health in the meantime. But, if you exercise too... show more

    If you train properly, running may prolong your life. Whether it does or does not, you will have better health in the meantime. But, if you exercise too much, or try to increase your exercise load too rapidly, you will increase the risk of injury or illness. You might want to find information about overtraining syndrome.

  • Which burns more calories/helps lose weight: Running for time or distance? Proper way to train for PT tests?

    Best answer: To burn calories, go for the distance. A runners' rule of thumb is we burn about 100 calories per mile when we run. The actual amount will depend on the runner's weight. But, differences in speed won't make much of a difference in calories consumed. If you ran a mile in 6 minutes, and then, on a... show more
    Best answer: To burn calories, go for the distance. A runners' rule of thumb is we burn about 100 calories per mile when we run. The actual amount will depend on the runner's weight. But, differences in speed won't make much of a difference in calories consumed. If you ran a mile in 6 minutes, and then, on a recovery run, you ran the same mile in 9 minutes, each run will have used almost the same amount of energy.

    In your two years, I would recommend starting with building up a conditioning base. Start easy, and gradually increase your weekly miles. After about 6 months, do some hill workouts for several weeks. Then, throw in some workouts that include higher intensity, such as intervals, tempo runs, fartlek.

    The word "shinsplints" can cover several types of injuries. It's hard for us to give you advice on that without knowing more. I advise you to consult health care professionals about your shinsplints. You can start with your family doctor, who may refer you to a sports medicine clinic.

    By the way, a common cause of shinsplints is running in shoes that don't match your biomechanics.

  • How to deal with bad shin splint pain? I can't miss any more of the season and I've been resting, icing, & using compression?

    Best answer: I agree with the previous answers. Showing no recovery after resting a month calls for some medical attention. Start with your family doctor, who should refer you to sports medicine. It will be important to find the cause, and the specific injury. ("Shinsplints" is a word that covers several injuries.) ... show more

    It will be important to find the cause, and the specific injury. ("Shinsplints" is a word that covers several injuries.) Often, injuries are caused by running in shoes that are a poor match for your biomechanics. You also want to confirm it is shinsplints, and not some other injury, such as a stress fracture.

  • Does running in different temperatures (morning vs evening) affect running speed?

    Best answer: running in the morning is highly recommend due to the plain and simple fact there are less harmful particulates in the air - at least in any city!

  • How can you train your body to not go to bathroom while running?

    Each time I go on my daily 10 mile run, I have to stop 3-4 times to use the bathroom (mostly #1). I always go before the run but it doesn't seem to matter. I want to run a marathon but I'm worried I'll be stopping like 10 times.

  • How can a female teenager run a mile faster than her current average time?

    Best answer: To run a faster mile you need to practice using a distance of about 700 yards. Run that distance 4 to 6 times a day at full speed, six days a week (take 1 day off). This is similar to marathoners that practice by running 10 miles a day. They run hard, full speed, and that gets them in shape for a 26.2 mile run. ... show more

The competition distance is about 2.5 the training distance. Thus the 700 yards. Have a great day!

I was watching the Buzzfeed video where she did a marathon in under 10 weeks of training and she wasn't a runner and I was puzzled at how she started doing 45+ mile weeks and didn't get shin splints.

  • Have the human feet become this fragile?

    Best answer: The human foot evolved for running with the impact coming sort of on the side and then rolling to the inside. The foot more or less comes down flat with a lot of ankle action. When we started wearing shoes we started coming down on the heel. When we run with shoes we have a lot of impact at the heel. This... show more
    Best answer: The human foot evolved for running with the impact coming sort of on the side and then rolling to the inside. The foot more or less comes down flat with a lot of ankle action. When we started wearing shoes we started coming down on the heel. When we run with shoes we have a lot of impact at the heel. This causes all kinds of foot, ankle, leg and knee problems. We actually have less injuries if we do not wear shoes. Look up bare foot running to see all the logic of it.
