I almost passed out today at practice because I didn't drink enough water but I don't even really know how much water I should drink before a hard practice. I just drink when I feel thirsty. I also can't stand the feeling of water in my stomach while I'm sprinting, it makes my side hurt and makes me wanna throw up. Please help.

  • What should I do about shin splints?

    Best answer: Pain is your body's way of telling you something is wrong. Shinsplints are a type of injury, and has a cause. If you keep repeating the activities that cause the injury, the injury will not heal, it will get worse. Eventually, it will become bad enough to force you to avoid those activities. It may be that if... show more
    Best answer: Pain is your body's way of telling you something is wrong. Shinsplints are a type of injury, and has a cause. If you keep repeating the activities that cause the injury, the injury will not heal, it will get worse. Eventually, it will become bad enough to force you to avoid those activities.

    It may be that if you rest, the injury will heal, and the injured area will become stronger, so the injury will not reoccur. But, don't count on it. It may heal, but become re-injured when the activities that caused the injury resume.

    Some people's use of the word "shinsplints" is vague, and refers to any pain in or near the tibia. You could have a stress fracture or some other specific injury causing pain in the shins.

    Here is my advice: 1) Bring this to the attention of your coach. 2) Get a consultation with a sports medicine specialist.

  • Could I run the NYC half marathon with almost no prep?

    I'm overall a very fit person, I wake up at 4:30 to either run or do some sort of cardio and then weights. I have run several 10K races and have run almost 20k on my own. I also do a lot of biking etc.. However, I haven't been doing a lot for the past 3 weeks because of exams. To give you an idea, this past... show more
    I'm overall a very fit person, I wake up at 4:30 to either run or do some sort of cardio and then weights. I have run several 10K races and have run almost 20k on my own. I also do a lot of biking etc.. However, I haven't been doing a lot for the past 3 weeks because of exams. To give you an idea, this past week I only ran abt 15K and did an hour of biking. I'd start a training routine on monday (tomorrow)... I live in Mexico, so the altitude is a lot higher than in NYC which I guess helps. I'm going to visit NYC from the 8th to the 15th and thought it'd be fun to sign up for the half marathon. Do you think it's going to be way too hard for me to accomplish or do you think I have a chance? Also, as reference, I am 18, female and generally finish a 10K in abt 52 mins. THX!

  • Is 19 mph fast enough to outrun someone sprinting?

    Best answer: "Is 19 mph fast enough to outrun someone sprinting?" Only if they are slow. The fastest sprinters can go over 25 miles an hour. I may still be able, at 67, go 19 miles an hour.

    Best answer: "Is 19 mph fast enough to outrun someone sprinting?"

    Only if they are slow. The fastest sprinters can go over 25 miles an hour.

    I may still be able, at 67, go 19 miles an hour.

    "However, my question is if I were in a situation where I got chased by an angry guy/girl, would 19 mph be fast enough to outrun a person?"

    Perhaps, lots of people are slow and it depends on your lead at the start. I cannot sustain that sort of speed for long and even when I was younger more a few hundred yards would have been my limit.

    "Also, it drivinh at full speed bad for the motor?"

    Depends on the cooling and of course it will wear out the motor faster. IF it is brushless motor that will not be as much of an issue.

    "Will it wear my scooter out prematurely?"

    The battery will likely die from aging first. It also depends on your weight, the amount of dust it picks up, water, maintenance and and how well it was built.

  • Should I do track & field even if I’m not a good runner?

    I’m a freshman and I want to do track & field for my high school this year, however I’m afraid I’m going to lag behind the rest of the team. I ran a 8 minute 30 second mile and I think that is not very good. Should I still try it? Am I going to be kicked off the team?

  • Should I still run even though my right calf is sore?

    I really like to run it helps me stay in shape and relieves my anxiety and overall feel good. But my calf is really sore I can still sort of run on it but I run when i try bc of the pain so my form might be kind of off. Should I wait until the pain goes away and just walk until I can do more running?

    I get it, running is a high impact sport that may cause your lower back to become sore but, is it normal to happen after every run? I could just be doing a light jogging warm up or a few sprints and my lower back will ache (usually at night when I'm laying down). Even on days when I don't run, i can still feel small aches in my back at night. It is bearable but, is it normal for these aches to occur as much as they do? Even when i do little to no running?
