  • 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 to stop getting shin splints when running?

    I keep getting shin splints when running then waiting a long time to start running and then I just get them again...they're so painful. Also my ankle/outer shins hurt so bad too. It's so frustrating. I was watching the Buzzfeed video where she did a marathon in under 10 weeks of training and she wasn't... show more

It's so frustrating. 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.

  • Where should I keep my phone while running?

    I run a lot and I prefer to have my phone for music while doing so. Thing is, I'm a bit confused as to where I should keep it. My leggings don't have any pockets, so in the meantime, I just stick it in my sports bra.

  • At a track meet, if a runner has uncontrollable diarrhea, should he leave the race and get disqualified, or should he mess himself?

    I'm on my high school track team and this happened to me. I ran off the track during a meet and I was disqualified. The coach was angry and said I should just go in my pants and finish the race. Is he right?

  • How do I get rid of my shin splints!!?

    I developed shin splints in Army Basic training. They went away for a bit and just recently came back. I stopped running for a while and rested for about a month.

    I developed shin splints in Army Basic training. They went away for a bit and just recently came back. I stopped running for a while and rested for about a month. They went away for the most part but then I failed my PT test! So, I cant NOT run. I HAVE to keep my PT up. I use Brooks running shoes and recently got insoles for shin splints that absorb the shock (Dr. Scholls). When I started running again, they came back. They arent excruciating thankfully, just annoying at this point. I also bought myself shin compression sleeves to help with running. I have heard different advise going both ways. Ive heard to rest, and then I have heard to run through them so the shin can get used to the stress. What should I do? Thank you!

  • Is a 5:05 mile good for a sophomore in high school?

    Best answer: I think that is great! Running has profound effects on the human body. I would aim for improvement, so I could run on the Olympic team, but I would be on the look out for signs of any injury, being careful, especially with my shoes, which should fit properly and have good heels. Some high school people need arch... show more

    heels. Some high school people need arch supports or other aids which do a great deal to prevent injury by helping them land properly on their toes and heels. You really need a competent trainer who knows what he is doing.

  • Why did my friend skip the track meet?

    Best answer: You ask a lot of vague and pretty pointless questions. Do you have a mental illness, or do you just like to troll?

  • Should I join the cross country team?

    So basically it’s currently may and I’m doing my first year of track. I really liked it even though I am slow. I started with a 9:30 mile and got to a 8:30 (what I’m currently at). Keep in mind I have a breathing problem that stops me from breathing through my nose which makes running harder but that will be solved... show more
    So basically it’s currently may and I’m doing my first year of track. I really liked it even though I am slow. I started with a 9:30 mile and got to a 8:30 (what I’m currently at). Keep in mind I have a breathing problem that stops me from breathing through my nose which makes running harder but that will be solved this Friday when I get surgery. I want to go to high school Xc even tho I’ve never done it before. I’m scared I will still be the slowest. They have 4 hour optional summer practices everyday starting June. I know that i could drop my mile to 7min before xc really starts but I’m still scared that I’m going to be the slowest at the summer practice.

  • Are these running times hard?

    Best answer: if you train (run on a treadmill for 30-60 minutes a day) then these times will not be hard, especially for a guy. however, if you do no preparation and never run, these times may be very challenging.
