"If your knee is killing you every day after you run, you're probably not doing the right sport."

Dr. Steven Haas of the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City says people shouldn't abandon exercise because it has many health benefits. But, they should make sure they're well-conditioned and listen to their bodies.Hans says switching to less rigorous activities is sometimes the answer.

This quote is pretty funny. I find it very disheartening that people will usually just quit exercising because it's too hard or it hurts. They should just switch to a different workout or just take it easier. You have to start somewhere - it's not usually at the top.

I completely agree with this. I remember in P.E. that I always had to run, and it would leave me feeling dizzy and out of breath (obviously), especially after I got asthma (from allergies) and couldn't run in the cold without my lungs wanting to explode. Basically, it hurt a whole lot and I didn't like it. However, doing pilates or dance has a whole number of health benifits and it doesn't hurt me at all. Also, doing exercises that you enjoy gives you more motivation to do them and not put them off.

Isn't it only obvious? If you hurt every time you exercise either, there's something wrong with you or your not exercising right.
