FINALLY doing it

I've known of CrossFit for years and years and years and always wanted to try it, but never really had the right opportunity. Since then, CrossFit gyms have opened up all over the place, including...

Re: 400m time guidelines

the 400m and the 800m are the two worst races I've ever run. WAY worse than the mile, the 2 mile, even worse than the time I ran 15 miles. I hear the 400m hurdles are worse, but I've never tried...

Re: 400m time guidelines

god damn. Alright, I'll say it again since STILL no one has taken notice to the fact that I've already made it clear in all of my posts in this thread that the times I posted are for a runner, a...

Re: Abs

does anyone know the answer to this? There's a difference between working through pain like we all do, and ignoring pain when the body is trying to tell us not to do something (like when we're...

Re: 400m time guidelines

eh... I wasn't a even a good runner in high school, and I was in high school last year. My best mile was 5 minutes and my best 2 mile was 11:15. So I'm slower than you are. Not to mention I've said...

Re: Dips ???

what happens when you try to do them? I just started doing upper body stuff for the first time in my life a couple months ago, and I can't do them either, but with me it's not so much a triceps...

Re: 400m time guidelines

well when I say from a track athlete's perspective, I mean people who run 400s in a race. Like... my senior year we kicked someone off the 4x400m relay because he was running 58 - 60 second 400s,...

Re: 400m time guidelines

if you're doing multiple 400s, then obvioulsy the time will go up. At one point me and my 4x400m relay team (when I was a junior in high school) set the school record and went to the State Open meet....

Re: 400m time guidelines

Senior year of high school I ran a 53.5. By next Fall I need to be running 50 or lower. A male athlete that is untrained should be able to put in a 400 in less than 70 - 80 seconds. I guess an older...

Re: Abs

quick question.
my swingset sucks for doing much of anything on. the beams are wooden and very tall, so there's not much you can to get a grip on them. That being the case, I tried inverted situps on...

Re: Sprint Exercise

aye, you nailed it. And yes, it did describe them. I even gave up my quest to do 4 sets of them after I couldn't do the second one at proper intensity. I gave it up to do a hard 400 and a hard 800...

yes, you do. I guess I'm still a bit traumatized by college. I'm only a freshman and after spending over $600 on books for a single semester, I guess I'm just in the frame of mind that all books are...

Sprint Exercise

Here's a new discovery I made. Not sure what it's called (if it has a name), but if you live near a track, go take a look at it. On the last 100m stretch to the finish line, there should be dashed...

Re: someone broke in my apartment

this sounds like something that happened to my friend Dylan. Two people broke into his house, force him onto the floor, covered his head, kicked him in the face (shattered some molars), stole his TV...

Actually I've been a sprinter for the past year, and next year, as a sophomore in college, I'll be running the 400m and 800m on a Division 1 team.



I don't eat well because when it comes to food I...
