  1. i occasionally experience knee pain and i find that stretching always helps. i just do a traditional quad stretch which stretches the knee out as well, before and after activity.
  2. and wasted a lot of energy.
  3. thanks Mr. Levi is very pleased to meet you all
  4. old pic, but this is him--> http://i404.photobucket.com/albums/pp126/anarchoblak/100_2522.jpg
  5. it's been a stressful 2 days. while at work i got a call from home telling me my dog had escaped the back yard. i rushed home and drove around for hours and hours, handed out my # to everyone i saw, called the surrounding area animal control depts, and was unable to find him. today i checked in with the pound and he had been picked up. i just got him home and he's ok, just a small cut on his nose. Levi is an australian shepherd mix, 5 years old in march. i love him very much and my heart was broken when i realized i probably wouldnt see him again. hes like my best friend. but, hes back now, just got him home and gave him a bath, and now hes sleeping. the poor guy was exhausted!
  6. absolutely. it all starts with the right shoes and proper technique. youtube has lots of great videos on form, and thats definitely the most important thing to focus on. if youre running improperly, you might eventually end up going some long distances, but you wont enjoy it as much, you'll put unnecessary stress on your body, and will probably end up injured. imho treadmills take the fun out of running, and if youre running properly, pavement shouldnt be a problem. of course running on a treadmill is better than not running at all!
  7. welcome to the community!
  8. everything bw mentioned, plus patience and determination.
  9. Did you see the SNL parody of Olbermann with Ben Affleck? It was pretty hilarious because it was so dead-on. I'm sure it's up on nbc.com somewhere. oreilly scares me, but he can be funny too. like in that inside edition video i saw on youtube...
  10. i agree. ive got to have some cardio, i guess its just that runners mentality.
  11. Thats a point in developed countries yes but how are the people of the third world countries where this campaign is targeted going to learn about Coke? its a fair point, consumer responsibility, etc. just look at the way they market these products in the us though. today may be different, but 10 years ago there was a coke machine in every school hallway, with fun ads featuring cool kids drinking coke and loving it. like tobacco, they get you hooked when youre young. by the time youre old enough to be considered a responsible consumer, youre probably already hooked. parental responisibility is obviously a factor there too, but the point is this company spends millions on adverts and their products are everywhere.
  12. even if they are helping people, it still doesnt change the fact that the poisons they produce and pander to the masses are completely devoid of any nutritional value. they are and have been undermining the health of millions, maybe billions of people for many years, and no amount of deceptive ad campaigns is going to make that go away.
  13. cool. youve come a very long way from that tshirt pic! and i thought i was making progress... its very inspiring to see how far youve come. try fitday if you want to use a calorie counter. i read in one of your older posts that you werent using anything, and FD is totally free. btw i do NOT have any affiliation with that site, i just really enjoy using and recommending it.
  14. very impressive! you're like, huge, dude. how long have you been vegan?

    welcome to the boards!!
  16. its good to see you've come out of the shadows two things id really like to get into: cycling and martial arts. lots of respect for being veg for as long as you have, thats really cool. and keeping tabs on your nutrion too, love that. what are you using to track everything? thats a pretty advanced schedule youre following, looks like i'll be learning more from you than you will from me. but no worries, bc there are quite a few very intelligent people here at vbbf. welcome!
  17. hello heidi, welcome to the boards!
  18. http://www.crossfitkids.com/images/uploads/Entry/img_2359_3.jpg You could also use an exercise ball for the extra challenge of stabilizing. Under the hands would be similar, but I'd guess not quite as challenging as ring pushups (correct me if I'm wrong). i want some! those look really effective...
