Running Myths!

Periodically I scan the World Famous Message Boards on the popular running website  Recently one titled "What are some of the biggest running myths" caught my interest.

My favorite running myths:

You should always breath in through your nose and out through your mouth.

Runners with longer legs have an advantage.

Electrolyte replacement during a marathon somehow eliminates cramps, prevents hyponatremia, and improves performance.

You can freeze your lungs running in winter.

You'll catch a cold running in wet, cold weather.

Expensive shoes will reduce injuries.

Stretching prevents soreness.

Running will ruin your knees.

Your body switches over to burning fat after 30 minutes.
