    I don't mind cardio, but running > me.

    Why is that?

    I can play 3 hours of ice hockey, ride a bike all day, hit the heavy bag like it's my job, but running 1 mile puts me on my face.

    My knees hurt, my shins are throbbing, my feet are swollen, and I feel like shit.

    Does this happen to anyone else?

    How do I fix this shit?

    Is running the benchmark for cardiovascular health? Am I in shitty shape?

    I'm the same way. I can play hockey for hours on end, but running a mile or two kills me so much more.

    i dragged myself into one of those arebic classes at the gym. I looked like an uncoordinated retard but it really got my heart pumping. after 30 mins I was drenched in sweat.

    And looking at all the bouncing tits and ass is nice to.

    :bigthumb: I won my division in a 5k race coming off a 9 month break. I did a 2 mile run just to make sure I could do it.


    BTW, you shins hurt probably because your shoes suck. Get some real shoes and run through fatigue until your second wind

    Try getting a good set of running shoes and make sure you are stretching correctly.

    do not let your foot "flop" down loosly. control it and build up the muscles. Do not land only on your heels. this will cause shin splints. you should be able to feet your weight on both the balls and heels of your feet.

    check your shoes, man. Thats what does it for me. I get issues with my calves if I havent run in a while, too. The more you run through the pain...the less it hurts the next time. Now I don't have any pains from it at all. I love to run, tho...so it's worth it for me to endure till my body catches up:hsd:

    Same here. I used to run outside, but my knees eventually couldn't do it anymore, so I started using the treadmill. Much better on the knees and helps with pacing.

    I suck ass at running but I force myself to do it 3 times a week in the mornings before I eat. I understand you burn the most cals throughout the day this way. At first i could not run a 1/4 mile without stopping. After two weeks I can now run 2-3 miles without stopping. Just keep at it and you will get better. I am still slow as hell but I put the time in.

    try swimming instead. I think people should split even time between running and swimming. If you get good at swimming, you can develope amazing control over your breathing.

    The most difficult part of running is breathing. Try to deep breath, push the air into your stomach, and when you exhale, every forth or fifth breath try to push all of the air out of your lungs.
