Thank yo so much! It really helped! You give great advice! Wanna be friends/workout buddies? I'm watching The Biggest Loser right now, it kinda motivates me.

Thanks for the awesome advice! It really helped! I'm going swimming on Saturday and have tennis on Friday. There's just two probs: I tell myself I'll eat healthy but when I see junk I eat it, even when I'm not hungry. I eat when I'm bored. Also, it's really cold and snowy outside where I live so I can't do outside activity. But I'm really looking forward to summer! I'm gonna walk my dog everyday then. If you have an answer to my two probs above, please post it on gogreen7487's profile. I'm her, and have been getting on gogreen more often than tygirlz. Thx!

Hi! I read your comment...and you're just what I need! I'm overweight and was wondering how to stay motivated and lose weight. What's tough is I don't have a lot of equipment at home, and my fam doesn't have the money to join a gym or the YMCA. I have some workout DVDs, but when I have the time to do them, I tell myself I'll do them later, but never do. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance! oh and please comment your answer on my profile!
tygirlz on 1/31/2009 7:56:41 PM

That workout sounds good for now, but over time, as your body adjusts to running, try jogging in between your running intervals. There's a German name for this type of workout: Vartliks (Fart-licks) It's were you run fast then run slow and you keep doing that for the whole workout. The best way to build endurance is to try running longer distances. If you keep running longer mileage, your body will get used to it and you won't have such a hard time when the 10km race starts up. You'll do great girlie, just believe!
Do what you love and love what you do!

i am just starting running and I have built up to four times a week. You seemed to be really interested in running, and I have a question. Okay, what I do is intervals, I do like 5 minute warm up walk and then run for around 15 minutes then stop then walk for 5 minutes then keep doing that. I am aiming for a 10km run in May, do you think if I keep doing this, I will be able to run the 10km run without stopping? Also, do you know anyother running tips that could help increase my endurance?
rainbowsandtuna on 1/28/2009 5:16:17 PM
I use my stair master during the winter, but i play field hockey and softball and am going to do lacrosse. i cant wait for winter to be over so I can start running again
fieldhockjock on 1/28/2009 2:39:25 PM

You've got time, girlie! If in 2 or 3 years you are going to start running on a team, you have plenty of time to decide what path to take. Don't worry too much! The right decision will come and I'm sure what ever it is you'll enjoy it!Just think about all the pros and cons(ups and downs) of each activity and I'm sure you'll be able to find the best way of being involved.
Do what you love and love what you do!
trackattack on 1/27/2009 6:27:12 PM
i like to run(for fun) and hope to join cross country or track in the next two or three years(when i start junior high).
i would prolly do hurdles, cuz i also like to jump lolz.
but, id more than likely have to give up dance or band or my Spanish lessons...
idk what to do!!!
purplecrazed on 1/26/2009 11:27:53 PM
Hey hockeychick19! We all do, don't we? Don't stress about it too much, though. It happens. Life happens. But if you truely want to make for it, try running extra hard the next day. Say you miss a day that you were suppose to run 3 miles. Just run 3 miles the next day with an awesome pace and I'm sure your bod won't turn against you.
Just don't push yourself too hard, but don't get too lazy either! Like I said earlier, STRETCH, STRETCH, STRETCH!!! I injured myself by not doing so and I'll regret it the rest of my life! Eat healthy, and stay fully hydrated. I'm talking about bringing a jug of water to school! This should help, a lot. Have fun running!
Do what you love and love what you do!
trackattack on 1/26/2009 9:39:59 PM
heey! nice workout sched! u sound just like one of my bff's! she's a crazy runner! she's the one that got me into it! got any running tips, bc, i miss a day of running sometimes, and i dont know what to do to make up for it.
hockeychick19 on 1/26/2009 9:19:12 PM
Hey girlies! Ok here's my schedule:
Monday: Track workout. @ least five 200 meters. 1 mile warm-up before and after workout.
Tuesday: 3 miles at a nice pace (8-9 min per mile)
Wednesday: 4 miles, nice n' easy
Thursday: 2 miles, faster than normal
Friday: at least 3 miles, slower
Saturday: at least five miles, don't rush!
If there's a weight room at your school you should take advantage of it. Remember to strecth before and after each workout! Very important!

It's just something you get better at the longer you do it. You have to build up determination and endurance. I've been competing in races since first grade so I'm pretty much used to the whole breathing hard and legs hurting part! Nobody sucks at running. Just keep pushing yourself and I'm sure you'll grow stronger day by day.
trackattack on 1/25/2009 4:06:42 PM
CoolI suck at running.How do you do it?
bleachanime/mangaluver on 1/25/2009 2:05:54 PM
Hey! Thx for checking my profile out! I used to play volleyball, tennis, and basketball but now I just spend all my time running! I'll probably play soccer next year cause all my friends say it's an awesome sport and there's a lot of running involved. I'll think about it....

Hey! That's awesome you do cross country (too bad about the snow situation)! Where I live it's always sunny even when it's raining! This is my first year of high school track so I think I'm gonna try everything until I figure out which ones I like best. I'll probably do 800 meters and up. 2 miles sound fun! How about you?
trackattack on 1/23/2009 8:37:45 AM
Hey! I love the profile!
I run cross country too! i'm really sad though, bc where i live winter is extremely cold and it snows so much so i can't run outside!
What do you do in track? distance? or throw or what lol
