You have to watch this!

Christopher McDougall: Are we born to run?

For the past 8 weeks I have averaged 60 to 70kms a week, I am injury free... oh and can I add, on a calorie restricted diet and low body fat? Yep! We are born to move. I find distance running quiet primal, I also find it is mentally challenging, its not usually the body that wants to give up, its the mind, lucky I live by MindSweat, makes it so much easier!

My fav quotes from this video:
'imagine a world where everybody could engage in exercise'
'restore our natural ability'
'whole lotta fun'

Trust me, it is fun. We are born to do it, so why wouldn't you?

Thanks so much to fellow B Attack instructor Heath for sending me this video :)

  1. I loved this... thanks for posting!

    I would love to run but I suffer from shin splints so bad I usually end up requiring crutches after I have tried to run.

    I have considered in recent times, running barefoot on the beach. It looks like I just might be on the right track with that thinking. : )
