    Default Running...

    How many runners and joggers are on here? If so what is your routine or habits? I used to run all the time when I was in the army and I think one of my biggest mistakes was letting my levels of running stop when I got home!

    It hurts my knee but I do it anyways. Not on a regular basis however. Biking is much more my thing and doesn't hurt my knee.

    Yeah I have a buddy who has shot knees and he really enjoys biking. It has always been hard for me to get into living in the middle of the city without access to long trails or paths.

    I used to run track until my knees didn't think it was a good idea anymore.

    (That was before my knee injury a couple of years ago)

    Too much pounding on the knees.

    I, like Jason, much prefer biking.

    I used to run, run, run...then my kness started to swell, swell, swell. The doctor said, "Keep this up and you won't have ANY cartiledge left." So now I run, run, run, on the the eliptical machine! LOL

    I prefer the elliptical machine as well

    I have never been a runner...ever...but my school has a running requirement for green belt and up. So...I'm starting slowly to get in to it.

    It's punishing. It's taken me about 6 months to get to where I can slog about a half mile. So I figure by the time I hit green I should be ready

    I'm a triathlete in my other life. Did my first IronMan last year at Lake Placid. Take about 2 time consuming hobbies.

    Usually swim, bike, and run 3xweek each. Occasional emphasis on one for a week.

    My class hates when I tell them we are going to do jumping jacks until I get tired.

    I am a avid cyclist, both road and mountain, but my preference is road. I run in 'offseason' to keep in shape. I will usually go out three time per week for about 5k.

    I have seen some mention of knee pain. I read an interesting article in the running room magazine about knee pain. The doc who wrote suggested that one of the causes could be the use of motion control shoes. I have quite a pronounced pronation and started experiencing knee pain AFTER I got my motion control shoes. Just an observation.

    Well as you all have pretty much almost have been saying, running is worse than biking. When you run you are sending shocks and pounds of pressure through your knees (I do not remember the exact number). After a while this starts to break down cartilage. I used to run until I had knee problems. My doctor said that it was from running. Since than I have been biking. I am no where near being a doctor but I would say especially for martial artists to ride a bike or do an eliptical machine rather than running or jogging. We all use our knees so much already by kicking or kneeing.

    That is just my own .02 on the subject.

    One thing I don't have to worry about when running is getting taken out by some a** in his SUV swhile gabs on the cellphone. When I do run I stay off the concrete sidewalk as much as possible, preferring to run on grass, or asphalt at worst.
