Guest pointequeen Posted July 30, 2003 Report Share Posted July 30, 2003 I know that running is bad for dancers and I noticed after I learned that that I do run kinda funny...my legs were slightly turned out. I used to get a slight pain on my knees and ankles after I ran but I didn't know back then that it was because of the way I ran. This upcoming year in PE they make you run 800 meters daily around a hard mud/dirt track and 1 mile once a month. We have a long period of soccer and a long quarter of track and field. I'm afraid that I will seriously hurt myself. We are graded on our time too. 1 lap(400 meters) has to be under 1:30 to recieve an A and 1:45 to get a B. Before I started really working on my turnout and making my turnout better in ballet class, I was a really fast runner. If you don't keep a consistent time you get marked down. How can I get out of running and soccer in PE? Not one person in my middle school is excused from running. Should I get a doctor's note? What should I tell my doctor? What about my parents? What reasons should I give them? What about my PE coach and my school principal? I'm afraid that they will just tell me to "fix" my legs and feet and run turned in or parrallel. I don't even realize I'm running turned out until I feel the pain afterwards. Quote Link to comment
