For the past 2 years, there have been many reports of ple dying after completing a run or cases of ple collasping halfway thru a run.. Did they push their body too hard or they have some unknown hidden illness?? But if we wanna improve our timing, we have to push ourselves, but how much is the limit??

Well,those athletes who collapse are suffering I think from hidden illnesses and not due to over fatigue and suffocation. Because like you to know where your body get tired and you itself know when to stop, so it is no use to push yourself beyond the limit as myself observe my mind would not stop to do a certain things but my body would not cooperate. So no matter my interest to finish what I have started I could not push through so I need to rest for awhile while waiting to gain my energy active again before joining in strenuous activities..

YEah, but one will never know, when they are actually given clean bill of health, which makes it even more dangerous.. For most sportsmen, they tend to be pushing their own body limits in order to achieve better results and more.. Besides, it's their goal and responsibility.. BUt for normal ple like us, we wont know our own limits, and sometimes, without any warnings etc, we can collapse just like that, even while walking!! Luckily for me, nothing has happened to me yet, and the worst i have ever got was dehydration.. haha =D

that the problem right there when the athletes have been wrongly diagnosed by a physician so the athletes stay upbeat that he indeed thrives well never defer from his training... yeah..many athletes are driven to push themselves to the limit would eventually worn out... and that is what we call as sunstroke being collapse from extreme heat brought by too much exposure to the heat of the sun... well being dehydrated means you are exhausted, so you have to do is to rest in a shade, smell the fresh air, drink a lots of water after you have rest, then you could continue your routines... so you been running everyday or every weekends? and about joining in running competition,Have you done it before?

Well, when it's the doctor's fault, then nobody can blame the athletes, for they trust the doctors and its diagnosis.. hehe ^_^ BUt even if doctos do ahve the right diagnosis, it still does not mean, we wont collapsed that easily.. Just for example, in the recent 2-3 years, there are so many soccer players dying while in a game, when they are really healthy.. YEah, i'm running evey other day.. haha =D Be it short or long distance, i have done them all.. BUt i have not really joined any competitions as it's always held early in the morning about 7-8am.. lol =D BUt i do take part in some relays and distance running when i'm in the army.. haha =D

I think we need sports, but should never push ourselves too hard. There is some kind of standards like heart beating rate or a certain distance for jogging. I think we human developed sports just for fun and health, and it should never go too far.

Sports is meant to be competitive in order to improve.. but i too agree with u that one should never push oneself too hard.. Always try to stay within our limits whenever we can :)
