re: Why are runners such douchebags?


Bad form can cause injuries, but even at very low mileage. Take a look at your stride and see if you are overstriding. DOn't concentrate so much on the heel or forefoot strike, but rather keeping your landing area right under or right in front of your chest.

Think a forward lean like a baby learnign to walk who takes a step only so they don't fall down.

So, if you were running circles around me, wouldnt you then be a runner?


Other than that bit of semantics, bring it bud.

I just use minimus shoes. Running on the balls of your feet with a shorter stride will keep your joints from hurting as bad.

What I used to use.

FYI, if you run on the balls of your feet you have a longer stride.. not a shorter stride.

Frisby golfers? I 100 percent agree with crossfit, but frisby golfers?

I don't have a problem with mountain bikers because they aren't on the road like cyclers with their asses up in the air in front of your car slowing you down. I enjoy mountain/trail biking.

Here's my list:

1) Cyclers
2) Crossfitters
3) Marathon Runners (much different than regular exercise runners)

Actually, let me revise:

1) Marathon Runners
1) Cyclers
1) Crossfitters

I assign them all a (1) because they are equally douchey!

Yes, because black people, hispanics, or Asians, are never semi-competitive and elitist. Thinking their DUBS or their fuzzy dice are acheiving greatness.

Right?

You racist frick.

Well, you have to change your stride completely. I assure me stride is shorter now than when I was running heel toe.

Keeping your feet under chest, as someone else pointed out already, is the real key.

Yea, but my knees would actually hurt more with a shorter stride.

I always had to plant right in front of my body, that way it would feel more natural.

Everyone is different.

Read a science book or research into the double blind studies that have been done.
