what the heck is wrong with this guy? He think beginners are running for the Olympics or something?! 35min!! More like 1hr 35min for beginners!

Stopped the video after 35secs…..what a co-incidence….

Peter Kristoffersen says:

wow. what a “beginners guide”…

Real Strategy Gamer says:

I was trying to help someone that might of been mislead

plytagalvis says:

Beginners won’t even make the distance, not even talking about measuring the time 😉

Jason Travis says:

I run 10K in 1 hour and I’m a Smoker I can run 1 mile in 10 minutes no problems I periodically walk to control my heart rate I use a wrist watch that monitors my HR and even though I can keep running I let it dictate when a walk and once it gets lower I start running again.

Gen Walsh says:

what do you recommend if we are training partly on treadmill due to weather?

BlueBerry says:

hahaha @Nezmundo00 good point!!!

cainster says:

I keep backing away but this guy keeps coming toward me!

chronofish says:

Seriously? 6 min miles for a beginner’s guide? 35 min finish time? Most beginners I know are suffering at 8 min/miles and would struggle to finish under 50 minutes. Marathon pace? This is clearly not a “beginners” guide.

Solid advice otherwise….

Beginners guide?

Rab McCauley says:

good guide is to enjoy running no matter how fast or how far 🙂

Taavit Cit-Ananda says:

Or…you could just clutch it like me today. Ottawa Race Weekend here we go.

Daniel Woodley says:

good advice however his math is off. I beginner would be at least 1 hour to 1.5 hour range and thats a fairly fit person

Mexicano President says:

PLEASE DON’T USE ALL CAPS! It’s the first rule of the interwebz

Real Strategy Gamer says:

Hoped I helped someone because guys giving advice that is so short and a few minutes might mislead you and confuse you while he is giving g ood advice hes not explaining what type of training this is and when to do it. Short Cycle Long Cycle
Endurance 3-6 weeks 6-12 weeks
Strength 2-4 weeks 4-6 weeks
Speed 1-3 weeks 3-4 weeks
Tapering 1 week 2-3 weeks
Racing 3-4 weeks 4-8 weeks
Recovery 3-4 weeks 4-8 weeks

See he is only explaining the third phase the speed phase.

Peekingduck says:

LOL A few things don’t make any sense in this vid… like the ‘shades’ (It’s bloody raining) and the ‘math’ (I’ll let you figure that one out yourself)…

Andrew Taylor says:

I switched off when he said a beginner should do it vetween 35 mins to 55 mins.

Quixmith says:

Thanks for the tips! I ran my First 10k today… I haven’t ran for 16 years and got 1 hour 16 minutes. Good place to start I feel. It was a nice slow one to start me out. cheers!

Mexicano President says:

All caps means that you’re angry, screaming, or both. Helping someone is not an exception to the rule.

Weather says:

very good advice, thanks

Nezmundo00 says:

I’m glad to see this guy is protecting his eyes from the strong UV rays

Real Strategy Gamer says:

HE IS GIVING AN EXAMPLE OF THE THIRD PHASE OF TRAINING CALLED SHARPENING, PEAKING, OR SPEED/INTERVAL PHASE. YOU MUST! DO BASE TRAINING FOR WEEKS OR MONTHS BEFORE YOU DO THIS TYPE OF TRAINING HE IS EXPLAINING. PHASE1 BASE TRAINING(MOST IMPORTANT BUILD MILES) PHASE 2 START RUNNING A LITTLE FASTER ON SOME RUNS . PHASE 3 WHAT HE IS EXPLAINING HERE. PHASE 4 TAPERING (CUT BACK AND/OR REST BEFORE RACE TO BE 100% NOT AS IMPORTANT IN JUST A 10K) PHASE 5 RACE PHASE 6 RECOVERY. but recover n every phase
