Runners are the room-temp IQ people of the fitness community. Do literally anything else. Doing nothing would be far better than running.

Runners are the room-temp IQ people of the fitness community.

Running has the highest ratio of body wear to actual benefits of any exercise resulting in an overall net-negative for fitness. Not to mention that elevated breathing outdoors in cities is equivelant to smoking many cigarettes.

People run because they think that's what it takes to be healthy, but if they were to do any actual thinking for themselves they would realize that running is actually retarded and they're retarded for doing it. Do literally anything else. Doing nothing would be far better than running.

Seriously, every time I pass by a runner I want to ask them where their carers are because they're obviously mentally disabled and should be under supervision 100% of the time.

      Ultramarathon running is arguably the only kind of running that can be justified, as it's both interesting enough as a hobby to justify itself and the slower paces seem to really put a limit on the downsides. Marathon runners are spooky wrecks, while ultramarathoners seem to turn out pretty well.

    What other form of cardio is as convenient tl as running?
    > Swimming, need to travel out to a pool, pay a fee, get changed, shower afterwards. Overall you're losing at least 1 hour.
    > Cycling, solid option but if you live in a city you need to stay on roads and deal with asshole drivers who despise you. Out in the country it can be nice, but you need to have a longer journey planned.
    > Rowing machine, also solid but they're expensive so if you want to do this you'll need to go to the gym every time. Probably my favorite from the three.

    Is there any alternative cardio workout you can do in ~1 hour?

        at what weekly mileage can you reliably expect to lose your virginity? asking for a friend

          I met my first gf when I finished C25k (roughly 10 mi/week). It was a spoiled SJW art hoe and a lot of headache. Met a better one when I did 30 mi/week, but the circumstances weren't right, so we had to part ways.
          Met my current gf at peak marathon training (50 mi/week) and really happy with her.

          Non-meme answer is that it depends not on your mileage but on your dedication to a specific goal. That can be a marathon or a sub-20 5 k or whatever.
          Working towards being the best possible you in a specific field is something women can smell from miles away, don't ask me how. Do that and you increase your chances drastically. Also worth pointing out that finding the right girl is simply a numbers game. I have no idea why nobody ever mentions this, maybe because it's just an inconvenient truth and everyone wants to virtue signal. You likely won't find your dream gf on the first try and will inevitably face some let-downs. It sounds cliché, but keep putting yourself out there and you'll fuk eventually. Godspeed, bro.

    Cycling is much more time consuming than running to get the same training stimulus. Swimming requires specialized infrastructure. Imagine going to the gym to pretend to climb stairs?

    When I was a fatty running was hell, it hurt every joint in my being, I had to stop because of shin splints.
    Then I lost the weight and one day I decided to try running again. I wish I could share the feeling I got. Still felt pretty bad on pavement. Then I tried minimalist shoes that force you to forefoot run and the pavement started feeling as good as any other flooring. Now I run fully barefoot, slowly any pain I've ever had disappeared and it's really enjoyable to feel the different textures you run through.
    That being said I run once a week just for the calories and for the fun of it. I hike more than I run, but it takes more time.
    I guess what I wanted to say is that running can be safe if you aren't an autist minmaxer about fitness. Just do what you enjoy and stop bringing your bros down.

          I picked up some runners for 15$ and another another for 30$ respectively at Costco. You don't have to buy brooks, I am using fila and adidas right now. Brooks actually gave me shin splints. Rotating shoes is a good idea to prevent injury, I'd you're just getting into it remember to take every 3 week off for the first 4 months or so to prevent stress injuries and runners knee while your bones and muscles catch up. After about 6 months you can just run really fast for however long you want.

      Focus on rooning. Every time when your brain drifts off to any anxious, self conscious thoughts bring your focus back to rooning. Don't judge your thoughts/brain's choice of focus. Just bring it back to rooning. This way you condition your brain not to give a fuck about anything else but your personal choice of focus. The anxiety will lessen with time and vanish completely at some point.

    I would say boxing is worse in terms of wear-and-tear compared to actual benefits. People don't realize how fragile their hand bones really are, even with gloves on. Head trauma is also way more prevalent than people think, not to mention all kinds of other self-inflicted injuries.

    It can be fun to spar, and obviously there are ways to prevent injuries, but they're never 100% preventable and can be far worse than just worn out knees which are inevitable the older you get anyway.

    Movies really glorified the boxing and fist-fighting, and it's funny because it's actually the worst way to fight in terms of damage to yourself. Our ancestors invented clubs, and spears, for a reason.
