[EP82] - Don't stop running! Push past the discomfort.

by @ninjavideo

Hi everyone! Hope you're all well!

Running just isn't that much fun. It's definitely more fun if you've got friends to run with, and it's more fun if you've got a goal that you're scared of... but at the moment, apart from timing myself, I don't have a huge amount driving me to keep on running when I'm tired and just want to walk for a second...

I got my worst time in months today... I walked quite a bit. I walked because I was uncomfortable... but the thing is... when you're uncomfortable, when your lungs are on fire - that's when you're getting the most benefit. That's exactly the point when your body realises it needs to adapt to survive... and instead of driving that point home and improving, I backed off.

I'm disappointed, but that's okay, this realisation should push me harder on Friday to keep running up these crazy hills even when I really don't want to. That's how we grow.

Thanks for watching!

Hi Peter!

I do know actifit! I've used it quite a lot and really enjoy it. I can't tell you how many times it's got me up and out.... or doing an extra lap to try and hit that magical 9000 steps. I haven't used it lately because I'm trying to get more Dtube community backing on my videos, and didn't want to dilute my feed too much. I haven't been successful at all, so it might be time to come back to the Actifit fold...
