Ep.69 From Point A To Point B (Jia - Running)
4:10AM Dec 21, 2019
Good day everyone you're listening to Time For Your Hobby and this is episode 69 from point A to point B. I'm your host Alex and today I have the honor to have jeah as my guest on the show how you doing today?
I'm doing really well. Yeah, it's quite rainy here but yeah, I'm doing well How you doing?
I'm doing fantastic. It is not rainy here. It's the leaves are changing colors. It's fall season. So hopefully the rain that we do not have here goes over to us so you don't have rain, but I can't control the weather, but I hope it doesn't last too long. So today we're going to be talking about GS past which we will introduce shortly. But before we do that, who is Yeah?
Hi. Yeah, my name is Jia. I'm 20. I'm currently a second year student at uni. And I'm from the south of England originally, but and I live in the north for the university. So yeah, that's perfect.
It's just short and sweet. And then you're very passionate about studies and learning. And that is basically what I could say. But yesterday is not about the education system today is about your passion, which is running. Now before we go into running. Do you have any social media links that you'd like to share with the audience?
Yeah, I have an Instagram which you will very welcome to follow. It's at gf 5886. That's j i a 5886.
Perfect. I'll put that in the description below. So people can go click and follow and just follow your adventure. Speaking about following I guess running could be part of following. Today we're going to be talking about running so how did you get introduced to running
well, I guess it was started like last year in July when I saw this online challenge, which was to run and walk 100 miles in July. And so I ran some of it, and I watched some of it. And that was my kind of real introduction to running, basically.
Yeah, that's pretty cool. Did you So what was the average of running compared to walking for that hundred mile?
Well, at that point, I was. I was new to running. So I think I mostly worked and I ran about maybe 30 or 40 miles about,
that's pretty impressive. Still, yeah. I'd suffer as well, so so we're in the same boat. But I'm sure your writing skills are a lot better than mine. And what would you say is the best part about running on let's say, in a personal or emotional level, what does it bring to you?
Well, I think it brings like a lot, a lot of different stuff. You know, it's really kind of changed my life in some ways. I think one of the things that kind of adds to my life is discipline and motivation, because I think I had that before, but not to the same extent that I have now because you really have to be good at managing your time. Because you know, as a student, like you have quite a busy life and be able to fit in like a run most days, like it really adds to your discipline. And I think also, you notice more like what your body needs. So for example, if you're going to run a longer run that day, you know that you need to eat a little bit more, or if you really want a shorter run, like a little bit less. And it kind of forces you to have a good sleep schedule as well, which I think is really useful for anyone. And emotionally I'd say, Well, I'm sure like lots of you've heard of the runner's high, which is like a feeling of like happiness or contentment after a run. And it's like a really big stress reliever, because I think, for like lots of people, the lifestyle that we have these days of like working for hours and hours a day and thinking and maybe sitting at a desk for a long time is kind of unnatural. Humans. So I think running kind of just just doing something physical, which is really good. For anyone really
know, this might be a weird question. But does it ever happened to you that say you're studying for an exam or doing a project? And in the middle of that you take a break, go for a run, come back and complete it?
Yeah, definitely. I think just because of the stress relief factor, like that's really it. Yeah, really helps. Definitely.
And for you, do you prefer doing long distance running? Or do you enjoy a short distance?
Um, personally for me, like I prefer longer distance, just because when you're doing a short, a short run, it's usually you do it really quickly. And it's like you're focusing on speed. But when you're running like a longer distance, you can kind of relax more in a way and focus on pushing yourself to the finish without kind of having to worry about how fast you're going. Obviously, you're trying to keep a good pace, but you're not trying to run as fast as you can.
And do you prefer to run alone or do you like company to join you as well, like that one friend that helps you push to the limit
I have run with, like a friend in the past and they've run with other people. But personally, I think I prefer running alone, just because I can kind of choose how long I run and set my own pace because I think I'm not the fastest runner. But it's like, and it's also time for me to be in my own head, if that makes sense. I don't think I'd really like to have a conversation with people when I'm running like a longest.
Yeah, I could imagine that people would run out of breath while running. Yeah, that's why most phone calls are not done while people are running. That makes sense. And so what would you say? You said you did the 100 mile run, but that was at the beginning. Have you done anything longer than that?
Well, I haven't done anything longer than that. And the 100 miles was kind of spread out over a whole month that the longest distance I've kind of run at one time is 13.1 miles, which is a half marathon, and that was this last July and it was my longest Whenever my first talk, yeah,
and if you don't mind me asking how long did it take you to complete it? It took me quite a while. Just over three hours, which is like it's quite a long time. It's quite a slow time but I'm really happy that I just completed it in order managing that staying hydrated. I know it's a cliche thing to say but staying hydrated is very important while you're running, right? Yeah, so do you have like a let's say a belt with water bottles around you or do you have the got one big water bottle that you just carry around while you're running?
Well, I I do I recently got like a belt that you can attach like two little water bottles and then it has it's basically a phone as well, but I usually don't drink too much. Actually, while I'm running. I usually drink like beforehand and afterwards just just like what I prefer to do.
Yeah, good to see you conserve your like a camel that can retain the water and then save it for later. I'm not calling you a camel. I'm saying that. The possibility of retaining water I like that. So speaking about the water bottles and the belts and everything else, what else do you tend to bring with you or You go running,
so yeah, I usually take my phone with me and headphones. Sometimes I take a windproof jacket with me when it's like cold and windy. I yeah, that's pretty much I always take my house giving me that's very important.
You know what I sometimes left the house but forgetting the house keys. So that is an important note for everybody whether you're running or not to always bring your house key. Now you didn't mention music. I have to ask What kind of music do you listen to to get yourself motivated to run or keep you in the zone?
Well, I have a I have a playlist on my music app. And it's it's kind of all kind of genres of music, but the thing that they all have in common is that they're very fast paced, upbeat, and just keep you high energy, I think Yeah.
Do you have a one specific song you like listening to right now or I don't know about you but up myself. I go through like one song. I listened to it over and over again. Do you have one like that?
Yeah, definitely. So there's this one song called Run boy run and it's by word kid and it doesn't like the lyrics are about basically about running
titles perfect for us like here run boy run. Hi, I got this. Let's go. Like what kind of areas do you prefer to run in? Let's say do you like running on treadmills? In the city in the beach or not in the beach, on the beach in the woods, what's your preferred terrain,
I really don't like treadmills because I find that they tend to go at one specific pace and I like running kind of at different paces all throughout my run. So my favorite place to go running is back home this field near my house, there's like there's like a park near my house. And there's this field in the park, which has a specific path marked on it for a mile which is really useful. Like before I had things that kind of tell me how far I'm running. I use that to kind of tell me how far was running and that was really useful and it was just a really nice area was green. It was away from the words and yeah, it was really nice, but now that I'm at uni I run like on the roads like on the pavement. afterwards. And that's most too but but my favorite place was definitely in the field near my house back.
So compared to the field and cement in the city, do you feel a difference on your feet and how you land or how you run?
Yeah, definitely. I think there's less pressure on a nice and less pressure on your feet, basically.
Yeah. So you're, you're comfortable in every environment, but you do prefer the one where there's more scenic views, I would imagine, right?
Yeah, I think it's nicer. And it's kind of it keeps you more encouraged, I think,
no, I don't know about you. But are you the type of person where you let's say you want to reach a certain point and you say, I'm not gonna stop running until I reach that point. Even though you're exhausted and tired. You're like, I have to reach this point before I can start walking.
Yeah, definitely. So I usually have an idea of how far I'm gonna run. Before I start running. I definitely have, say like, I'm going to run like four miles today or specific things like that. Yeah. And it's That really keeps you going. Because even you know, you might want to stop day stop two miles in but you know, you have to keep going and keep pushing yourself to reach your goals.
The motivation to keep on going and run boy run like the song. Now, this is something that I like using but I don't know how other people feel. But what kind of shoes do you have? I have the tote shoes and I love using those for running but what is your shoe that you like to use?
Yeah, that's good question. Well, as a student, like I don't have that much money to spend on shoes. So I think my favorite shoe does a shop and I don't know if it's a worldwide shop, but there's this shop in the UK called decathlon and I just used the cheapest route from that and I covered the name of them but it's just the 10 pound shoe, which sounds really cheap but the shoes are really good and they last quite a while as well.
Now is there a shoe that you would like to have?
Does a shoe that like in my kind of wildest dreams? I would like to have the night vapor fly? I don't know if you've heard about but yeah,
well okay. In that case for people who are listening that would like to donate a pair of shoes to God. I'm just saying if Joe and rejected, would you? You wouldn't. But that will keep her motivated to keep running. Of course you don't have to donate. But if you do, Hey, you got the geos Instagram so you do what you need to do get in contact. She's very friendly. I'm not your father, you do what you need to do. So back to running. Is there a place in space but a place on earth that you'd really like to go for a run? I don't know somewhere in Australia or Canada or Russia anywhere around the world? Is there anywhere you'd like to go for a run?
Well, I didn't have like a specific location, but I think it would be really cool, interesting and challenging to run in a desert just because the environments so different that sound, it's hot, and I think it'd be really cool challenge. I know that I know that there are races in the desert. So I think that would be a really cool thing to do.
I would imagine you'd have to bring a little bit more than just two bottles of water if you're going running in the desert. It might get a little hot and some sunscreen. Now, I don't know if you have this, but do you have a watch or a smartwatch that would track your heartbeat or the distance for you to keep a record of how you're doing your progress.
Yeah. So I use a Garmin watch, which I got for my birthday. And it does tell you how far you've grown. It tells you your heart rate, it also tells you your stress levels, but I'm not really sure how it works that up. And that connects to this app that I have called, where it connects. A lot of it can connect to lots of different apps, but I use the night running app, which is really useful because it gives you plans, it tells you how far you've run, it sets the challenges for each month, and each week and stuff like that. And yeah, I think that's really useful. And it's kind of added another layer to my running as well.
So it actually added more motivation for you to keep up with this application.
Yeah, definitely. Because you'll compete on the app, you're competing against other people. So there's like maybe a monthly challenge that says Like, can you run 100 k in a month, and then there's leaderboards of people from all over? Wild and it's really great.
Oh, that's interesting. I like the idea that it's competitive. But it's not like a competitive like, Oh, can you run a kilometer within 10 seconds? Impossible. But I mean, the idea that they're not putting the standards at an unrealistic level, they're putting it at a realistic level where everybody can do it. And it's enjoyable. It's that friendly competition aspect. I like that.
Yeah, it's good. But then you always see like, the top of the leaderboard, people have run like 1000 kilometers in like a week. And it's like, how did you manage to do that? But yeah, they got
in their car. Just took their hand with a watch outside the window just shook it while they drove the car. No for you, or just in general, what are some common injuries that could occur while running?
Well, I've actually been really lucky in that I haven't had any kind of major injuries. I did kind of have my new ones. I'm not really sure what happened, but I had to take a few days off but then after that, it was fine. But they do say that running is kind of like the one sport where you're guaranteed to get injuries. So I guess it's just a matter of time. I think the most common injuries or the your ankles and your knees, because that's where you're the real pressure is when you're running and this amount of pressure, especially on the road does, there's a lot of pressure on your knees. Yep, I've once sprained my ankle twice within a week, the same ankle because they're running and it is not pleasant. And I was young, I was stubborn. So let's
move on from that. So you said you participated in a marathon? Are you planning to participate in a new marathon anytime soon?
So yeah, I participate in the half marathon for and this time, I'm participating in a full marathon in March. And it's, yeah, I'm gonna hopefully run that quite well. I'm a lot faster.
And I know this might be a stupid question, but what are you doing to prepare for this marathon? Are you mentally putting some goals that you want to achieve before the marathon or anything else?
Yes. So I have a training plan which I got from the tap that I told you about before then like running up. I put Kinda like when the race was, and so they, and like how many times a week I could run, and they kind of made a personalized, like it's a program that makes a person as Prime for you. And so I'm running six days a week at the moment. So there's like a long run each week their recovery runs each week, this temporary runs and speed run sometimes as well.
Well, and if you don't mind me asking, what is the objective time you're aiming for, for this marathon?
To be honest, like, my goal is just to finish because I'm quite slow. I don't really have a time in mind, I just have the goal of like getting across the finish line.
Hey, that's that's the spirit you just got to finish it is not how fast you finish it or how slow you finish it is the idea that you completed it and you went at your own pace, which is good. Yeah. You don't have to compete against anybody. That's fantastic. And now Do you have any inspirations when it comes to running, whether it's, let's say family members who support you for running or, let's say another athlete, they said, Wow, I want to be like This athlete the very inspirational.
Yeah, I definitely have people who, who inspire me like on a daily basis or Well, yeah, you know, and one person is definitely my younger brother because his school he runs a mile every day, which I think is, you know, super impressive, because that's the program that they have at their school. They like most days, the kids, you know, he's 11 years old, and they run a mile every day, which is like 1010 laps around their field, which is really cool. And in terms of runners, I do have a few inspirations as well, and does this runner called David Goggins. And he has had, like, kind of a tough time in life from when he was a young child, but he's really kind of persevered through that. And he is an ultra marathoner. And as we speak, like at the time of recording, he's in an ultra race right now. And the kind of, for people who don't know ultra marathons are races which are longer than American so it could be 50 miles, 100 miles, but the race that he's in right now Is 240 miles long, which is just insane to think about. The race is called the Murph to 40. And another runner who did that race was, here's another inspiration of mine. It is Courtney do alter. She's, she ran that race a couple of years ago. I think it was last year, she won the race, like outright should be everyone else by 10 hours. And I just think that's amazing. And she has a really good attitude towards running. And yeah, there are loads of people in running, who are really inspirational.
Wow, that's, that's incredible. The distance is amazing. I can't imagine myself doing that my grandmother does actually came back from a walk from the Camino de Santiago, which was an 800 kilometers and she's 80.
that's amazing. So yeah, she did that. 800 kilometers in 20 4040 days, I believe. So I don't have her energy, that's for sure. And now it's for this. Those celebrities you talked to are about, are they older or younger? If you don't mind me asking
David Goggins is 44 I think and Courtney is in her 30s I'm not sure exactly how she is. So
that's, that's inspiration. Even at that age, you can make amazing progress in your 20s. So you have a lot of time to improve. You're gonna outrun me, I, I'm sitting in the chair right now. So I'm sure you're probably jogging. I can't even hear it. Now, what are some misconceptions about people who are runners?
Yeah, that's really good question. I think some misconceptions are that some things are different, like there's something special, but I think the thing that they have that is special is their determination to succeed. I don't think they were born with anything different, other than the fact that they can, when they're trying, they just don't give up. And also you don't have to be a specific type of person to start running. Like anyone can start running.
And I heard this and not necessarily misconception, but I heard this when you do a long marathon. It is not recommended that you just stop. After you finish the race. You just walk off so you don't suddenly stop. It could be pretty bad for the body. That's what I've heard I could be wrong, but you're the expert or am I wrong?
I think nothing. That's right. I think you should keep working because yeah, and also just in the days following people may think you to take time you should definitely take time off to recover, but you shouldn't stop running complete, like in the few days afterwards, you should definitely go for like, maybe like even if it's just like one kilometer or like one mile you should definitely run in the following days after a marathon
so keep that body moving that muscle memory It's enough forget because the body I forget. This might be a weird question. But do you have like a go to food because he said you use the app is the app also show you a diet like what to eat and what's good to eat to recover, let's say after a run, this is a good food to recover your energy.
And the app doesn't tell me but I think good like good foods to eat as lots of proteins definitely you can eat that. If you need that. I think the best time to that is just after a run. So chicken, fish, eggs, things like that. And just make sure you're eating enough because otherwise you can really run out of energy really quickly.
So you do eat a little bit before the race or the run and then a lot after, right?
Yeah, I usually don't eat immediately before a run. But just because I think it wouldn't really sit well in my stomach. But afterwards, it's definitely a good time
afterwards is a free for all. It's the body running after you went for running. And now How did running have an impact on your perspective on life?
I think it gave me a dominium a different perspective on life because it just teaches you that you're not already limited in what you can achieve and what you can do. I think it shows you that if you're capable of running, you can kind of apply that to your to other things in your life as well. Like, you might think you're not going to pass like a test or something. But it just kind of gives you the mindset of you can definitely achieve anything if you work hard enough.
And I would imagine it also keeps you very focused, which is good.
Yeah, yeah, it's definitely improved my focus. Yeah.
Have you ever seen anything weird while you went for your run? Or are you the type of person that has? Was it the horse vision where you just focus or Eagle Eye or tunnel vision that's the word tunnel vision where you focus on one spot or you are very observant of the environment around you. I think I'm not necessarily observant of everything around me I'm just kind of focused on two feet in front of me basically, just focusing on keeping going keeping like my feet moving and stuff like that. And what time of year do you prefer to go running as it like or not even just year but also time of day like both of them into factor? Which ones do you prefer? Night evening, winter, fall, summer spring?
I think I prefer like, the autumn and spring because those are times of year where it's not too hot, but at least in this country, like it's not it's not too hot. And it's not too cold. So yeah.
And do you prefer running a night or during the day or what let's say evening,
definitely during the day because at night, it's kind of like dark and scary, especially Yeah,
that's fair. That's completely fair. And I would imagine if you do choose to do it at night, you would probably go running with some friends or company to make it safer. Yeah, no, you know what Same here, I, nighttime I'm good, I'll run during the day. You know, do you want to present this hobby to the world or use it more as an escape from reality? So in other words, if somebody came up to you and said, Hey, gee, I'd love to learn more about the running rituals or running in general, or Where's a good place to go running? Would you be open to that or more? Just, you'll figure out you have to fit you can figure how to run,
I think, like part of it is quite intuitive. But also, yeah, definitely, always be happy to like, talk to someone about running. Like I'm probably not the best person to give advice to people but definitely to like new runners. I definitely talk to them about it. But also, I think it's not necessarily an escape from reality because I think it's more of an enhancement of of the reality that you're living in, if that makes sense because it's it kind of adds something new and exciting to your life.
Economists feel more alive? It just brings out that energy. Okay,
Yeah, of course. Yeah, running is basically the body just going in full motion. Everything's awake and active so I can see how it's just enhancing everything. Yeah, no speaking about, well, that's not Nope, this is a bad segue. But has running ever stressed you out just the idea that maybe you weren't able to achieve a certain distance by a certain time or the train was bad, or you hadn't hit a lot of traffic lights, which avoided or screwed up your time, anything like that.
I think the only time it's kind of stressed me out is when I'm not learning if that makes sense. Like thinking about the goals that I'm trying to achieve in running. But when I'm actually running, I think it's a time where my mind is completely clear. And I'm only thinking about running and not really too stressed about the goals.
Other than that, it's all fun games, right?
And what was your biggest challenge when you first started running?
I think the biggest challenge I had when I first started running was just being able to run like good Distance because when I first started, I did struggle to keep running past the pain because when you go for a run, it's not always easy it there's times where it is easy, but there's also times where where your whole body feels like uncomfortable. And it's really difficult to push past that, that you need to learn that when you're in that kind of uncomfortable feeling like if you keep running it will become comfortable again, it's kind of like a wave so you feel uncomfortable and then you feel comfortable. I think when I first started my challenge was pushing past that uncomfortable feeling.
Yeah, I don't know if you guys have that over there. But do you have a product called Tiger Balm? It's a kind of like a cream that you put a play on the skin, it would numb the skin?
Um, I haven't heard of that.
Yeah, so basically, sometimes I put it before playing sports activity, let's say football, or go for a run. So if you already have like an injury or muscle swollen up, you would put that cream on, it would numb the feeling and helps you helps you push through. Actually this leads up to my next question. Let's See, because it I would imagine it does happen during running sometimes body parts as well like the knees or the ankles while you're running. do you how do you treat that afterwards? Do you take like a really cold bath or cold shower to reduce the swelling? Or do you massage it? What's your process?
I do take cold showers after running. I think it's really it kind of helps you to Yeah, as you said, reduce the swelling in your knees and also to kind of cool down your muscles as well. But I don't have any specific like
creams or anything that I use. I don't know about you, but if I do have swelling, like a swollen leg or anything like that, and I'm going to take a cold shower, I always have to pump myself up before running into the cold shower.
just go just like a skipping rope. You have to like find the right time to go in.
Definitely it can be very like it makes you feel awake if you're not.
And speaking about awake, he said when you run during the day, but is it early morning that you like to run or just midday? I should have put this in with the other question, but I'm curious.
So I don't When you run in the morning, I usually run in the early afternoon when I don't have lectures and stuff. So yeah, it kind of varies day to day, but it's always it's usually in the afternoon.
No, do you do leg exercises while you're sitting on a chair like the bicycle effect, where you just pretend you're on a bicycle while you're in chair just to have that body moving going?
I don't, but maybe I should, because sometimes, like when I'm sitting down, my legs kind of feel a bit numb, like they should be moving, but they're not.
Well, there's an idea for people who are enjoying running. If you want to keep running while you're sitting on a seat. Just move your legs but the best option is definitely to get up and go for a run. Yeah. So what is your current biggest challenge? So we talked about your first challenge. So what is your current one?
I think my current challenge is probably staying motivated to run like nearly every single day because even though it's a hobby, and I enjoy it, and it's it's fun, like some parts of it aren't fun. Like say I'm working on something else in my life, like a They say that I'm doing or studying for exams or stuff like that. It's keeping the motivation to keep on running, like at the moment, six days a week, it's kind of challenging. Because I think once you're running, it's good and it's fun, but just kind of getting out the door and going for a run.
But I feel like if you're doing it six days a week, your fight, you found the key thing to motivate you to do it. I could be wrong, but I feel like you have a pretty good system going on for yourself right now.
Maybe, but I think it's a day by day thing. I think it's, you have to like each day, you have to keep the motivation. You can't rely on what you've done before. It's an everyday thing. You just have to just reset yourself up for it. I think that's pretty much it.
No, it's raining there right now. Would it be something that you'd like to go running? Or you said, oh, wait till the rain stops?
Yeah. Well, sometimes, like on a really busy day, it's raining. I just don't have the option to not go for a run but it can be it can be fun to run into Sometimes as long as take your feet don't get too wet and uncomfortable.
See, nothing scares you. That's good.
No, do you have any word of advice for anybody who might be interested in this hobby?
Yeah, I have quite a quite a lot of advice. So just like in terms of men like mental preparing for I'd say, don't give up like, like, say the first time you go for a run, you might want to try and run for a mile like, and if you don't like it, there's no shame in stopping if you can run for a mile but just I'd say, like, go back out again the next day, or maybe like in two days, and try again. And there are also loads of programs on online like apps and things called couch to five K, if you're a complete beginner, that teaches you how to run go. Like, if you're a complete couch potato, it teaches you how to run five K and in a certain number of weeks, you can build up to that. And also, if you're like stretching stretch after you go for a run and not before I mean obviously you can do like little warm ups and stuff. But if you stretch before that can lead to like tiny little muscle fractures, apparently which something I've read. And also, a one big one is to get a foam roller, which is this kind of plastic tube covered in foam and spike will not spikes, the spikes that kind of also made up. But you can kind of roll your legs and your back over that after you go for a run. And that increases the blood circulation. And it's it's really good for your muscles.
I have one of those and I love it so much. I don't run as much as you but I do use it because I play football and it feels amazing. Yeah, I did have a guest on a few episodes ago about how he goes for runs. But he films videos, so virtual running videos to be used on treadmills. Would that be something you'd be interested in just to film one of your runs?
That would be really cool. I don't know if anyone would want to see like, just the running streets that I get running on. But if people were interested in then yeah, that would be really cool.
There you go. And I guess you can see like, Oh, yeah, I ran there. I remember that. There was that weird squirrel that was just jumping around everywhere. No And not to move on to something more normal. Once again, at the beginning, we asked for your social media links. Do you have any social media links that you like to share again?
Yeah, sure. Um, so I have an Instagram, which is gf 58865886.
Perfect. I'll put that in the description below so people can click it follow and once again, see your journey. Now, of course, the last question is the one that doesn't really matter, because it's a question for me. But do you have any questions for me about running? Because once again, you're I'm not the center of attention. You're here. It's you. So the question you ask is important, but my answer will be ridiculous because I'm not an expert.
Okay. Okay. I'll think of like an interesting question. How do you think it would be to run on the moon compared to running on the
Oh, that's it? That's a really good question. I feel like this kind of maybe like the effect of like how you try to run under water except there's some gravity and you're brought down I can kind of like float in the middle. But on the moon, we'd be pretty cool. I feel like it'd be more like strides like long strides instead of running. So like a bouncing motion. Okay, I would definitely love to give that a try. I don't think I'll ever have the chance in my lifetime. But would you like to give that a try?
Yeah, I think you'll be really cool. I just wonder how like your body would react differently and and what would happen?
I honestly feel like my center of gravity would just be thrown off I started flipping around and end up on my head somehow that's, that's that's basically my life story where I try to do something it looks beautiful. And then it rotates and rotates and goes miserably wrong. And then I land in a weird position that humans should not bend and that's that's the story of my life. But have you ever tried like running in water just for fun just to motion all that. Water just holding you back?
Yeah, like in the swimming pool and stuff. It's definitely like really difficult to run. I think the best thing for sure is swimming because like running maybe that could be Interesting spot one day and people could kind of find a way to overcome it, but at the moment, yeah, it's definitely something that we need to work on.
Could you just imagine that they have giant scuba tanks and then weights on their feet and there's an under water marathon? That very interesting for sure.
It's like It's like the triathlon. Like if you had a bicycle as well, it's like the triathlon all combined into one thing, you just like ride a bicycle underwater world, right? And they're like, well running.
Going into the fictional world right now. So if anybody's interested, you know, scoop, marathon triathlon, you know, what would you and I came up with this idea, so give us some credit if you ever do decide to do this. I'd love to watch it. It probably be a lot slower than a normal marathon because it's underwater but yeah, interesting. None the least. So yeah, there you have it, another body with a hobby.
