Exercise is fun (in theory), and has too many benefits to list. But do things wrong, and you could find yourself injured and frustrated. So many injuries are caused by the same mistakes, year in and year out. So to give you a heads-up, here are the most common. 1. Skipping the warm-up. Muscles need time to adjust to the demands of exercise. Before you jump into your workout, you should take a few minutes to gently walk, cycle or whatever you choose to prepare the body for heavier activity.

Pre-dawn time at the gym is an acquired taste My morning workout begins with the reach-over-my-husband stretch. Laying on my side, I lift my torso and contort to the left, reaching my right arm over his head to quiet the alarm clock. It's 4:30 a.m. He still has hours of sleep ahead, but I am off to the gym for my pre-work sweat regimen. I throw on my shorts, T-shirt, socks and sneaks and cover my bed head with a baseball cap. I toss the lunch I made the night before into my carry-all bag, then throw it over my shoulder, along with my purse and gym bag, which holds my "grown-up" clothes for work.

After completing five JFK 50 Mile races, traversing the same route through the Appalachian Trail and running the same monotonous stretch of the C&O Canal towpath, what could possibly be different about a sixth trip? As it turns out, plenty. Starting at 5 a.m. for the first time accounted for much of the difference. The first three miles were no sweat. I had driven to the top of South Mountain on the National Pike after dark many times. But entering the Appalachian Trail in the dark - OK, I had a small halogen lamp strapped to my head - was a unique experience.

David Wilson has an idea for Saturday's Maryland State Cross Country Championships at Hereford High School. "I sort of wish they'd take all the top people and just run them together," the Smithsburg senior said. Since that's not going to happen, Wilson can at least try to win the Class 1A boys race with the day's top time of all four classes. "That would be really cool," he said. Expectations are justifiably high for Wilson, who is undefeated this season through 10 races.

Learning to manage money can make it go further. In fact, even a little effort can seem like a raise. Managing money is a skill that almost everyone can learn and benefit from. For example, one of the most common money mistakes, making a major purchase impulsively, is one of the easiest to avoid. If you are thinking about a major purchase, it is recommended that you wait a day or two before making that nonessential purchase. Another financial mistake - buying an item on sale just because it's on sale - also can be hard on the checkbook.
