This is a great video by one of my favourite running vloggers - ThisMessyHappy:
'What school never taught you about running' - Couch to 5K

Great inspirational video John_W Thanks for posting 👍
That puts it all in perspective, thanks
Oh but the snooze button just five more minutes. Getting better but still don’t get up as soon as the alarm goes
Excellent vid John. I needed this, thank you
Wow that was really good, so inspirational, thanks for sharing that! Love that philosophy
That was so good to watch and listen too. And running on sand is brutal as I recently found out and running on shingle is even more brutal.
It's quite inspirational isn't it? Very different to what he normally does.Yours
What a great video. Don't hit the snooze button on life. Love it John.
Hi John. Thanks for sharing... brilliant video and now a subscriber.
Everything he says is common knowledge here. It's just packaged up differently and in one place.
- If you don't start, you'll never do it. (Snooze button)
- You can't push yourself hard all the time.
- You need a meaningful reason to be doing this that will keep you doing it.
- Life often gets in the way.
- There will be good runs and bad runs but they're still runs.
- The act of running is only part of the experience. Your interaction with other things (and people) while you're out is at least as important.
- And running on a soft surface which saps the energy out of your strides is very draining.
And I know why some folks won't like his voice. He's trained himself to speak at the very lower end of his natural register, causing a grating "vocal fry" effect. It's the same as the trend for many female speakers from the USA to have croaky voices.
Fair points nowster - however, you must know how many beginners *don't* know the above.
We do have the excellently curated FAQ, though.
Of course! But I'm now experienced enough with t'internet to know how often they're ignored - they have to be explicity posted as reminders. Folks simply don't go looking for them. Similar behaviour in FB groups and other forums - the same questions repeated over and over, when a simply search of that group would provide the answer.
Don't get me wrong, Ben is obviously looking to build his online community and therefore needs to put out good and compelling content.
What a great video, thanks
Not what you're looking for?

Tesco after a run, en route to school, still a bit sweaty and obviously still in my running kit....

Personally I find that I run better and for longer if I am...
tough run is 100% better than no run however much it hurts at the time, there is always a good one...
some sob story, no!
So I'm out running and who should I come across but one of the school bullys!...
