I know it's that time of year when lots of people ENJOY lovely run.
BUT a recuuring theme is "I've damaged my knees!" So as one of those whose exercise has been seriously disrupted by knee injury caused by over enthusiastic running, can I make a plea to the site organisers?
It would be nice to be able to block or put all posts by runners, at the end of the daily forum post, so that I do not get reminded of my pain every day.
I add that I am 73, could run a mile on grass in 4m 15secs in my early twenties without pain.
I love cycling, but for many years have found that high impact activity like running damages my feet and knees, so before it hits my hips as well, I DO NOT WANT TO RUN. Do you read that Laura?
I think it is bad to encourage overweight people to take up an activity that has so much potential for harm when there are so many safer ways to exercise that do not involve subjecting joints to high impact loads. And I read that you burn 100 calories a mile whether you walk or run.
End of rant.
