Do you think is healthy go jogging everyday? Or can it be dangerous cos you put too much pressure on the heart? (and rish sudden death, like some athletes)

I go jogging around once a month, and I was wondering about going daily for a few weeks to get fit for the summer, but i am not sure if its a good idea.

Thanks.

I think it depends on what kind of physical conditioning you are in with regards to heart issues.
It's excellent cardio, but I'd say start very slowly and gradually increase if you aren't used to it.

One thing to consider though.. its quite a lot of stress for the knee joints, so that's definitely something to be aware of.

I've had 2 operations on my knees already (more from dancing injuries than from running), but its definitely something that factored into cutting down on my running.

If you're just looking for fitness and want low-impact, the elliptical trainers are great for this... but I do agree, there is something really enjoyable about being outside and pounding the pavement... Invest in some good running shoes too. That will help minimize impact.

Have fun!

I have recently started to run again (after many, many years). I decided to run a 5k in June. I found a program called c25k (couch to 5K). It gradually works you up to longer runs, over a 9 week program. They do stress, not to run every day. Your body needs to recover. The importance of stretching before and after cannont be overstated, if you want to enjoy your runs, and remain injury free. The training is 3 days a week. Cross training is recommended. I believe the website is: www.coolrunning.com Hope I was helpful. hello2

Javier if in doubt about heart risks etc speak to your doctor before starting...The one person who I knew who had a heart attack while training for a cycling race had a congenital heart problem which was compounded by the exercise

and if you have joint issues swimming is an all around good cardio exercise with less impact on the joints

Jogging everyday? Well I do it nearly everyday. There is no danger to the heart! Please? It's great cardiovascular exercise. If there is any danger it's to the knees and ankles or from getting hit by cars while crossing the road while running.

Maybe yes, maybe no.

EVERYTHING, in moderation.

Jogging is great if -- like eviotis says -- in moderation. For the average over 20 adult not grossly overweight, 3-4 miles 3 times a week is great for you. Otherwise, try bicycling.

Oh please! Sex can be more strenuous than jogging, but i dont see any men worried about heart attacks when it comes to that!
Your body is made of muscle, and it can do anything you train it to do! Going for a quick jog every day would be hard at first because your body isnt used to it, but you will get used to it and then you'll love it! If anything it will strengthen your heart!

You must give up the life that you had planned, in order to live the life that is waiting for you..

People I've known over the years who have had problems related to jogging it always seems to be joint issues...and swimming is great, because it's "less impact" as they say...your feet constantly pounding the pavement can take a toll over time...

Never known anyone to have any heart related issues from jogging...

Yeah, I never even thought about potential heart problems from having sex,
But I was well aware of the little joint issue I had causing quite a disturbance between my legs there.

Swimming, biking, and sex are all great exercises, with sex being the most productive, in my opinion.
Biking, you have to make the decision; should I wear a lame ass helmet for safety, or not?
Swimming would be: should I always use the buddy system, even tho I'm alone?

I can't find any faults with having sex yet.....(:

You should use the buddy system when having sex as well, Scooter...

And wear a helmet...for your own protection...icon_smile

Unless your heart has abnormal medical issues jogging is not a problem.

The most dangerous thing about jogging is avoiding 2 ton metal vehicles on roads. Stay on the back streets, neighborhoods. etc.

Bicycling? Why is it necessary to dress like Lance Armstrong just to bicycle? If you do that you just look silly!

My idea on that is the required level of exercise may depend on the physical condition of the people...

Some strenous exercises may be needed for some people,while that unsuitable for some other people ...for ex: heart patients, disables and pregnant mothers etc...book

It's probably more dangerous to never jog.

When I was a kid, I ran everywhere. When I was a teen, I was an athlete and many of those sports required a lot of running around. But I started to hate sustained running for any distance over 400 meters in duration.

I found it exhilarating to run as fast as I could over a 400 meter stretch, but I was not a sprinter by any means and I was and am not a miler nor a marathoner.

For cardio...I walk a great deal, swim whenever possible and ride my bike or elliptical @ the gym. It is a lot easier on my shins, feet and knees. Both my parents had bad knees and while I never have, I didn't want to push it.

Also, since my work hasn't required me to suit up since the mid 1990s...I have avoided elevators like they're the plague, (unless I needed to ride up over 15 flights). A little extra muscle burn in my legs and ass has always been good for me, I thought.

If ya can't beat 'em... pay someone to do it for you.

Actually, jogging can be very, very dangerous...with hazards one doesn't think about...

The last time I went out for a jog, some girls passed me by on bicycles...I turned me head to catch a glimpse of the "rear view" and crashed into a tree...isjda

So yeah...jogging is actually very hazardous...

Jogging once a month is counter productive as it will likely lead to injury..a regular 3 -4 times per week is better...I used to run 80 miles per week, wore out my knees and now I cycle instead....whatever you do make it part of te weekly routine...even walking is good...

I find a daily brisk walk to be nice. You don't have to invest in expensive trainers and you can do it in your normal clothes. No offence to joggers, but done at the wrong speed, it can make you look pretentious.

The fact is jogging and any other so called "cardio" activity erroneously believed to be EXERCISE is not only bad for your heart but is anything but EXERCISE.
Should anyone care to respond, do so without any personal insults or moronic vitriol if you expect me to respond. It took me awhile to let go of my stubbornly held, yet unquestioned beliefs before I learned the truth too.

I have been running most of my life, on and off, first to be shape for sports and later for physical fitness. Besides that, I just enjoy running, especially outdoors along woodland trails. The last 4 or 5 years I've had to basically stop because of problems with muscles and tendons in my legs. Turns out I was doing some things wrong all those years. A physical therapist, a female marathoner, recommended a book, "Slow Burn", by Stu Mittleman. Now I am in shape and enjoying my runs again. His training methods are different than most, but very effective. Check it out if you want to run and enjoy it! He says you should feel better at the end of a workout than at the beginning. If you do it his ways you do. It has a lot to do with heart rates and slowing down to go farther and faster. All I can say is, it works! Stu was a world class distant runner who set the record by running a thousand miles in nine days. Give it a chance, you may be pleasantly surprised!

I jog 5-6 times a week, 3-5 miles at a time. It helps me to stay in good shape. It definitely works and shows results.

I don't believe jogging everyday is dangerous. But running (intense aka cross country) is probably detrimental for your health in the long run. If you jog a nice easy 3 miles everyday, you will definitely see improved stamina and higher levels of energy! Plus, it is good for your cardiovascular and you'll be nice and toned :)

My former cross country coach used to do these 100 mile marathons, and we all thought him crazy for doing so! 100 miles is not fun! Especially if you have to do it in a certain amount of time.
