  • Brit Mk 2
    Brit Mk 2 7 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.

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. 😇😏

    Let Go 2 weeks 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 👍
  • Peter Nhieu
    Peter Nhieu 2 weeks 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.
  • Peter Nhieu
    Peter Nhieu 2 weeks 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.

    like a light 1 month 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.

  • dumplin '
    dumplin ' 7 months ago i run cross country and honestly running is such a mental sport. it’s insane. i run 8:30-8:15 on regular runs and one time i tried keeping up w someone on my team and my first mile was a 7:50 (i run w a garmin). with this i wanted to stay consistent for the next three miles and i did, bc i told my mind that i could do it. i heard this from someone at a race “i can, i will, i must” running is one of the hardest sports because it’s all about how strong your mind is. your body will listen to whatever your mind says, so pump those arms, have a good kick, and open up those strides!
  • dumplin '
    dumplin ' 7 months ago also remember to stay on your toes for uphills w shorter strides and let gravity and longer strides take you down hills. stick w it, it may suck, but running is so good for you. i have really bad tendinitis in both my knees but i still run LOL you can do it !! mind over your body !!
  • Caty Culp
    Caty Culp 7 months ago You're 100% right on all of this! Totally a mind game!
  • Preet Singh
    Preet Singh 4 months ago @dumplin ' ; yes ,you're absolutely right for the fact that your body will listen to whatever your mind says because the early humans used to run for more than 300km everyday; and we possess similar(if not same) body and we are designed to run much longer. Watch the movie Forrest Gump for an inspiration. =)

  • Laureen Berger
    Laureen Berger 2 months ago I'm glad to know that because I've tried to run regularly for a while. It seems like such a great sport since I love going and doing things outside and I also enjoy listening to music and shutting myself away from the world. However every time I try I always end up being defeated and I feel like shit because it seems so easy. You don't need a lot of material and it seems like everyone can do it. But it's seriously fucking hard. People make it look easy while it's really not. I'm a fairly active person. I do a lot of dance, spin, yoga, hiking and a lot of different workout but I was never able to run. It seriously reassure me to see that it is indeed a mental sport and that's why it's really hard for me. It's not because I lack the physical strength it's because I lack the mental strength and like that's okay. I'll try again when I'll feel in a better head-space that will allow me to do that.
  • Gracie;
    Gracie; 2 months ago @dumplin ' I'm a short sprinter now, But I used to run cross country. And after you pass the 3rd or 4th mile its all mental, Cause your body has already given up. You aren't going to finish a race if your mindset isn't positive.
  • Muhammad Adi Putra
    Muhammad Adi Putra 2 months ago 1st of all, pls mind my language. I dont speak English that well. yup..I do agree with you..its all in our mind, but..,just wanna share something. as you grow older, especially 35 and above or even it is lower, pls do check your heart bpm from time to time. if you are not fit enough, slow down your pace for a bit..make sure the heart bpm is within your age level. be alert with the signs. unless we know that we're fit enough to do extra mile, then heart bpm is only a number..whatever it is, stay positive, stay safe, enjoy your run...

  • Hiro Valentine
    Hiro Valentine 1 month 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.

    Johnator45 2 months ago Stop telling yourself what you dont feel like. I can guarantee you will feel more fresh and ready to start the day after a quick jog in the morning. Put that positive achievement in the bank right off the bat and carry the wave forward. Better mood will follow. Might even improve your learning capacity. Just make sure you sleep enough.

  • Susana Jiménez
    Susana Jiménez 3 weeks 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.

  • Johnator45
    Johnator45 3 weeks 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.

    Johnator45 4 days ago @Susana Jiménez you were kinda dickish and high-horse about it in there and that term you highlighted souds as much BS positivism as anything. I did not catch onto your esoteric meaning of it in there. K. Thx. Bai. Not gonna respond to this anymore.

  • tinglis12
    tinglis12 2 weeks 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!

  • Caty Culp
    Caty Culp 2 weeks 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!"
  • Plushy
    Plushy 2 weeks 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!
