Health Care Articles Khalsa News Network
More and more People are joining the fitness bandwagon, with the increase in awareness levels as suggested by recent research studies. One may ask for the best ideas for being fit, but the fact is that there is no short cut and to be fit you have to be regular, take good and healthy meals, avoid oily foods, and take care of your body yourself. The weight loss pills and weight loss program show fast results, but they provide temporary remedy. Anyone who has lost several pounds in weight loss program in a week or a month, will put on weight very fast unless he/ she takes precautions afterwards.
Knowledge about how to exercise, has often and for how long is gathered from the net and from ones experience but it lacks the professionalism required to make a success out of workouts. Some only concentrate on building brawn, ignoring the other aspects of a balanced workout.

Health Care Guide Khalsa News Network
Cross-Country is a sport at many Junior and Senior High Schools. These athletes run between two and five miles per day, depending on the coach. In this article you will find many ideas for choosing equipment or gear, preventing injuries, helping stamina, and also many good food ideas that help to give the runner energy.
What kind of shoes should I buy for long distance running?
The best shoe for any long-distance sport is the lightest running shoe with the most support for the weight. Many coaches suggest Saucony running shoes, but there are many brands. You want a very light shoe that has built-in support for the arches. When you go shopping, check the weight of the shoes very carefully. Many runners also like to have spikes for rough terrain. There are both the screw-in kind and the permanent. This depends on the level and age of the runner. Again, check with your coach.

Answering all your running questions and needs
Mike Dove and Donald Buraglio
This column has been up and running, so to speak, for almost six months, so you can imagine how full our e-mailbox has become. We thank you for your interest and will always reply to individual e-mails, but we'll periodically use this column to answer some frequently asked questions.
The following are real questions from real runners.
Where can I find people to run with?
The most popular group runs on weekend mornings are at the foot of Ocean Avenue in Carmel, Saturdays at 7:15 a.m. and at the Fishwife Restaurant in Pacific Grove on Sundays at 8:30 a.m.
These groups are large enough that you will probably find somebody close to your speed. If you want a timed run, then go to the Races at Fort Ord held every Saturday at 8 a.m. just past the barriers at the end of Inter-Garrison Road. If you go to any of these you'll find people to run with and they can give you information about midweek runs as well.
Also be on time as these runs start precisely at the times listed.

Stay hydrated with the No. 1 Awesome Habit: Drinking water
March 19, 2005
The No. 1 Awesome Habit is drinking water. That sounds simple, and I know you've heard it before. Drinking water is key if you want to run longer and stronger and feel good doing it.
There are so many drink choices in schools and markets that claim to quench your thirst, but none of them will ever be able to compete with the healthy benefits of water. Sports drinks are somewhat useful for replacing fluid and nutrients. In fact, water is absorbed better when taken with a little carbohydrates after your workout.
Unfortunately, most people tend to overuse sports drinks. In addition, the high amount of sugars contained in sports drinks can cause stomach upset if taken during competitions or workouts. Diluting sports drinks with water can help reduce this risk. In most cases, however, water is the best fluid replacement.

Nutrition Important To Run Training
March 15, 2005
Like many sports, the food on the training table for a runner makes a difference in performance, and that process begins long before the carbo-loading spaghetti dinner the night before a race.
Noah Dankwardt, a physical trainer at Definition Fitness in San Marco, Fla., said nutrition is a big part of race preparation.
"Preparation is really the key," Dankwardt said. "The way you plan out what you're going to bring for the day will allow you to eat it. If you don't bring it, you won't have it, (and) you'll be forced to catch the local fast food or whatever's in the snack machine. And that's just not going to cut it."
