To no avail, I've googled how to fix this and I don't know how to unflag! I still selected "like" --but can someone help so the accidental flag does not affect this video?? (when you hit the flag button again it will not unflag - smh, so sorry.)

  • Brit Mk 2
    Brit Mk 2 8 months ago (edited) I've lost count of how many friends that have never come back for a 2nd run due to pushing too hard from the off, your advice to slow down was spot on. I grew up hating long distance running/cross country but with maturity came patience, and i feel that patience for distance runners is vital along with listening to your body. If something feels wrong or you have worsening pain anywhere do not ignore it, better to stop, walk home and get it checked/rest up for a few days and then go again. Your body IS boss.

    Peter Nhieu 2 months ago @Let Go that's exactly what I did the first month. Now I don't have cravings anymore but I still run everyday and each day I'm getting closer to reaching my goal of running 5k without rest.
  • Peter Nhieu
    Peter Nhieu 2 months ago @Fahad Mirza tbh it was because I had my heart broken. And I just didn't like the fact that a substance had so much control over me. It's really mind over matter. Everytime I had a craving I'd go for a run. I was pretty pathetic at first, running out of breath from only 100 meters. Everytime my lungs kept giving out it just reminded how much the cigarettes have messed up my lungs and it just motivated me to become better and better each day.
  • Let Go
    Let Go 2 months ago (edited) Peter Nhieu everytime u feel like a smoke go for a quick run , even sprint, then when you are breathing heavy just remember smoking restricts your breathing. That’s how I quit after 20 years of smoking. Good luck I hope you quit forever 👍

  • Little CinnamonRoll
    Little CinnamonRoll 3 weeks ago Fun fact to your tip. Actually. If you and your friends starts running from a dog, the first few who stop, the dog will run straight past. The dog will always chase the person or people still running. Try it if you ever run into a mad dog. Just stop and remain calm.
  • the gajuar
    the gajuar 1 month ago if you're being chased by a dog, start running and stop all together ... it'll confuse the dog and it'll probably go away. what i do is i just stop, turn around and start petting the dog: they love being pet those lovely creatures

    António Paixão 2 months ago @celtic knight , bruuh.. If the serial killer is psychopath with the same personality as mine, then the guy who is running more is the guy who is gonna die. Because if he values is life so much to live all friends behind, then it will be that much more pleasuring to see him notice he is actually the one who is being followed, and is death will be the more unenthusiastic. Of course I'm talking just whit the knowledge I read in a book. I would never actually do something similar. 😇😏

  • Amy Fox
    Amy Fox 3 days ago Interesting. As a beginner runner myself, my key tip is to never stop until I’m done. If I get tired, I slow to a very slow jog, but never to a walk. You have to have the mindset that your body can do it, because it can.
  • Underwood
    Underwood 1 week ago followed exactly this. increased speed slowly.
  • Stevie Wonder
    Stevie Wonder 1 week ago Black182heart well you don’t run a great deal, 2k. 10 minutes at most... ask pro runners, the best in the world... all train on trails. Not hard to use your eyes to avoid potential hazards
  • Stevie Wonder
    Stevie Wonder 1 week ago (edited) Black182heart, yes & no. Like you said more incompetent beginners however trail running is far better on the joints than what road running is, often trails are uneven in other areas. If you suffer joint pain and want to run then trail running offers you a platform to do so within some extent, or atleast far more friendly than road
  • Black182heart
    Black182heart 1 week ago Another beginner tip: Never run on an uneven surface. You can twist your ankle and tear ligament severely.

  • Rachel
    Rachel 1 week ago cross country is great, as it's mostly through woods and fields, so you hardly ever see anyone, and I personally feel more like I can walk if I need to, so there's no judgment from that, it really does help with the anxiety factor (I'm diagnosed with anxiety and totally feel you, I can barely stand to run on tracks due to it) and you often get so into your work out you then either don't notice people or are too tired to care
  • smilingrid
    smilingrid 2 weeks ago honestly, I've found running really helpful for my anxiety. I get so into Zombies, Run! or whatever music/podcast that I'm listening to that people don't matter so much. Plus, your running pace is likely a bit faster than others walking pace, so you get to leave them and their possible staring in your dust :)
  • Natsuki

  • L P
    L P 2 weeks ago funkaholiq xoxo Here’s how I think of it. If you’re staring at me from your yard or house, then you have time to do what I’m doing. If you’re staring at me while on your own run, you aren’t working hard enough. You shouldn’t even have the capacity to think about anything else if you’re on a run.

How many grannies can I pass before I have to break and walk? Or I should start jogging again because this granny sped up I think.

  • Plushy
    Plushy 2 months ago Same here. I just moved to a house with a big park in front and thought about jogging for the first time in my life. It helped to stake it out and watch a few other people doing it first. I've just started doing a few laps around it, as early as I can in the morning when there aren't too many people. My partner came with me, so that helped. We alternated between walking and running as I've realised it's much harder than I thought! I think in these situations, most people are just doing their own thing and it's only in our head that we think that people are watching - truth is, and this sounds harsh but it's helpful: we just aren't that interesting! ;-) As for the minority of people who might take an interest and feel the need to be mean - it's their problem and no decent person would ever want to give you a hard time for doing something to help yourself. It would speak volumes more about the naysayer than it would about you. Go for it!
  • Caty Culp
    Caty Culp 2 months ago Trust me on this: nobody cares. Truly. When you see runners on the road where you are, how much time do you dedicate to making fun of them in your head? Probably not at all (unless you're a pretty garbage person, at which case I would encourage you to reevaluate some personal stuff). That's how it is when people see you run too! Truly, nobody cares. In fact, people might be inspired seeing you out there. When I always see a runner when I'm driving somewhere, I just think "man, they're awesome, I wish I could be out there right now too!"

    tinglis12 2 months ago I felt the same way when I started so I chose a local trail to start where there were very little people around. Now I’m good and I don’t care what others think (I actually have caught myself singing out loud while I’m running) because I know I’m doing something to better myself and that’s good for me physically and emotionally. Nothing feels better than when you set a goal for yourself and complete it. Run girl run!

  • like a light
    like a light 2 months ago lol that used to happen to me but when i started working out, it stopped. i think its because when you exercise, your VO2 max increases which means you can run more efficiently, faster and for longer. the only problem im having so far while working out is muscle contractions in my stomach from breathing too fast for too long.

  • Hiro Valentine
    Hiro Valentine 3 months ago 10 year runner tip. Trainer Mileage - as soon as you see wear and tear in your Trainer which happens to me every 400 miles approx. buy a new pair. And make sure the soul is reasonably flexible without being thin. Empty stomach - don't believe everything you hear about eating carbs, eating before run, timing eating etc. Its all nonsense. Run on an empty stomach, I run up to 10 miles without any food that day. Caffiene - yes. This will be more than adequate to get to 10 miles with one cup of coffee. If you go past 10 miles then eat, but do not listen to beginner tips about smashing food before a run. Nonsense. Eat afterward. Run hard - if you struggle or feel like crap on a run. This is a win no matter what time you reached or how bad you did. It was good exercise if you felt tired during the run. If you didn't, didn't get anything out of it. Good days and bad days, irrelavent... as long as you ran, you win.

  • wildesthog
    wildesthog 4 weeks ago (edited) @Evita Blehmane Sounds like your tonsils are very sensitive to cold air or to the bacterial/fungal spores in it, or you might be alergic to polen too. Either way, talk to your doctor. He/she might advice you to cut them tonsils out, I bet if that's the case, after the operation you'll forget you ever had that problem. Ps. It might fix joint pain too if you're experiencing it regularly.
  • Stevie Wonder
    Stevie Wonder 1 month ago This advice is total garbage lol, you need to eat in order for your body to perform glycolysis and to enable the resynthesis of ATP, otherwise that’s what ‘hitting the wall’ is if you don’t eat, I feel pretty entitled to an opinion as I’m a pro ironman triathlete, running a 2:40 marathon in an Ironman... you can not eat however you can suffer the consequences...

  • Retro Workshop
    Retro Workshop 1 month ago Note: it is slightly subjective to body types, ability, and goals. If you want to lose fat/weight, say, then DO NOT eat before or directly afterwards. Run/lift a lot, with little food, this way you burn the fat already on your body. If you want to gain fat/muscle, then DO EAT before and afterwards. Run/lift and eat a lot, this way you don't burn your body fat, you only gain.

  • angelita jamito
    angelita jamito 2 days ago For beginners. -Get a good quality sleep -You must learn proper warm-up and stretches before and after your run for your body to avoid injuries and unnecessary pain... - before running i only drink half cup of coffee, it boost my energy and make me feel alive i guess. -before u run or jog make sure to start walking with maybe 10m walking or whenever u feel ir ready -dont lean ur body forward, keep it straight. -on ur first minute, try to breath only thru ur nose. -if ever ur exhausted dont open ur mouth too much while breathing.. -breath deep, and exhale slowly. -dont think that u are tired. Dont look down, always forward and keep motivating urself while running. -good music helps too. ...sorri im not quite confident on my english. These things helps me a lot avoiding injuries and running longer on the track. God bless. Keep healthy 🤘

  • Johnator45
    Johnator45 2 months ago @Susana Jiménez maybe a lie for you or maybe you are doing it wrong. A short, quick jog like 3k in 20 or so minutes should charge instead of drain you. If it drains you, you are running too fast or don't sleep enough. I mentioned enough sleep is necessary in my reply. I admit everyone is slightly different, so what is good for me may not be good for everyone. You should find out what works for you and stick to that.

    Susana Jiménez 2 months ago @Johnator45 THAT'S A BIG FAT LIE!!! Imani Maldonado don't lie to yourself with "I will feel more fresh for the rest of the day" bc its not true. I did that with spinning class, and I never felt amazing for the rest of the day: I got sleep deprived. Just be realistic and say the truth to yourself: I'm doing this for my longevity, mental and physical health, etc. I found out the hard way that I can't fake positivism, my brain identifies my bullshit right away and I end up falling back asleep. But when I say the truth in my mind (this is necessary for your mental health bc you don't like your reflection in the mirror, get up and run) I do get up.
