Running can kill you or not, just like lots of other things. You pay your money and you take your choice.
This is the first time I am reading this article, can't believe I am the only one. Also there are other articles that I have read from way back, and I have been on this site for 10 years at least. I never was fond of running, but 14 years ago I had a partial knee replacement, followed by a full knee replacement almost 4 years ago. So even if I wanted to run---no can do.
Why rerun an article from 2016? I'm sure there is a lot of new information out there
i think i read this before. No matter. Its a great reminder
My husband took up running in his early thirties and it wasn't too long before he decided he would like to train for a marathon. The short story is that over the total of his running career he ran 17 marathons and for his fortieth birthday he ran 40 miles. People used to tell him that he would ruin his knees but today his knees are still stronger than most 82 year old men. He was never fast, just steady.
I used to run a 5K every morning and then got out of the practice. I was my healthiest weight at that time. Trying to get back to it because I felt amazing after running. But I never over did it. You have to listen to your body and give it the rest it needs
If running is your exercise of choice, that's most prudent to take precautions to prevent injury . . . just like w/any other activity.
I run a lot. I'm not sure if it is worth it or not. It's hard on my body, but I want to challenge myself also.
Something to think about...Thx!
Joints protest running now. Arthritis, bah!
