running on hard surface

if anybody does their cardio by running around on hard surfaces such as pavements dont do it because you will injure your cartliges over time and damage your kneecaps.try to stick to grass or softer surfaces that will cushion the blows as you run

    yes its not good mate there has been reaserch done by the mod .and now even soldiers dont run on hard surfaces because of the damage you are doing long term to your cartliges and knees.so if i were you i would find a softer landing to run on

    it can have very serious effects mate.and the trouble is when you are young you dont know or hear of it.but if we inform young people now it gives them the chance to make a decision on wether or not they want to take advise knowing the facts.if the mod stop squaddies trainning on hard ground we should listen

    i ran on roads for years as part of my boxing training . I still do but i avoid hard surfaces in the winter as the ground gets really hard on cold days and sometimes i can feel it in my shins aching

    yes mate it isnt just the knees ankles and shins can be affected.no worries short term but in the long term there is a chance of damage.dont want to be alarmist just inform people.cos i see them round here running on the pavements illinformed.sory mate but you say in the winter ?hope you dont go out running when the weather is 0 degrees as this too is damaging to your lungs and other internal parts

    as i say mate you can now make a decision informed.cant you find a field near you or canal pathways thats where i do my running.even if you have to drive to it i would say it is worth the trouble.then again you might never have problems and run on hard surfaces all your life.just thought i would let you know

    yes mate i do at the weekends when its light but try running on woodland or along a canal at 6pm on a winters night .. it can be tricky .
    TBH i dont really suffer personally with injuries anyway as i always buy good trainers and replace when need be . Also when i run on roads i dont sprint heavily on them . I do all my heavy work on football pitches

    On a more serious note i see where your coming from. I usually mix running outdoors and on treadmills, recently i've been hitting up to 60 km per week, and i can already feel my knees aching (im 24). I think running volume as well as the surface affect the condition of your knees.

    I'd also like to add that having decent trainers is important. There are many specialist runners shops around, and contrary to what the majority would, actually sell specialist running shoes for much cheaper than one would expect.

    That sucks, I live in a very urban area and the only place where I can do my morning cardio on grass or a soft surface is about 20+ mins drive. Thats not good as I have to jog max 5-10 mins after I wake up, jog for half hour and then get home to get a protein shake.

    So, in my position, what trainers would you recommend best for running pavement?

    Heard Mizuno and Asics are the best, is that true? Might get a pair on ebay after I get some recommendations from you guys!

    i use trainners from tesco thats what i can afford.but i will look out for brands of good road trainers for u and post up.i run on grass all the time so i can get away with cheep trainers but if i were running on pavements all the time i would buy a proper pair of runners at the very least.as i say mate will post up when i get to know
