  • Running and talking = impressive

    Running backwards so you can film the person who’s running and talking = super skills

    Running backwards so you can film the person who’s running and talking without ever casting a shadow = ninja skills

  • Someone set up a squat and leg lunge/jumping jacks station in chalk in my neighborhood for if you’re running. They also drew positive affirmations like”Did you know you’re amazing?” &”Have a wonderful day” things like that. I actually stopped at the marks they drew on the sidewalk mid-run the other day, did the 20squats(mix of air and jumping)then the 20 leg lunges each side & lastly the jumping jacks. I did it at the tail end of my run and did notice a shift in my leg movement.

  • Short and fast is a blast! Trail running helps me keep running fun for sure. However, I like to just take off in town and “run around”. I see parts of town that I have never seen, even though I drive by them all the time. I like starting in town and ending up on some country road too. It reminds of cross country & track practice as a kid. If you have time, I have a video called “Running Motivation Why Do You Run?”, and I would like to hear your response. I would put a link, but sometimes that makes a comment go in the spam folder. Thanks for another video, especially on this topic. Now, I’m going to have to do a “fun-run” this weekend.

  • Wow Coach Holly has amazing Steady breathing-she is running and still talking so steadily!!! I just have had this video as the follow along run, and I admire so much of Coach Holly!!!

  • Could I get some tips, I can only run like 100+m before stopping (I reached 200m before stopping recently) and then I end up stopping because my calfs tighten like crazy. Been watching some of their videos and when I look at the foot strikes, it seems I’m using the forefoot to strike instead of the midfoot to strike and that gives my tendonitis pain as well. Most of the times I end up stopping is because of the exterior side of my calf, and I do stretch before I run too. So I would do like 4 sets of 200m runs and 200m walks and then 4 sets of 100m runs and 300m walks, but post-run I barely feel anything sore above my calf area, it feels like I’m just using my calfs to run. I really think something is weird since I’ve been struggling with this area for years, even when I was in the army.

  • A video that is only 3 minutes long and doesn’t stretch the watch time of the video, and also is useful and entertaining in 2020 on YouTube? Nah

  • How else keeps on getting kick on high round when it is not even laggy on Bloons td 6 I can not find out how to fix it if you now plz tell me

  • Jaiden this is wat the Japanese kid said My finger got cut and it hurt look there i blood coming out! Why don’t you understand what im saying you’re Japanese right?

  • 3-0-1 ninja
    4-2-0 alchemist
    2-0-3 super monkey
    Upgrade ninja to 4-0-2
    Upgrade super monkey to 2-0-4
    Upgrade ninja to 5-0-2
    2-3-0 Monkey village

  • Here is some advice
    Don’t be fat and don’t be a puss. and push thru the pain and eventually it gets easier and easier. But if you quit you will never be able to run long distance.

  • This is like right on time. My last few runs have been really crappy and these tips may help. Going to use them with tomorrow;s run!

  • Also holly I’v stated planking while running an push ups say 8 to 10 sets off 15 push ups I wondering should I start doin leg work outs instead

  • I was having trouble in football conditioning, an I did the tips in this video. The only problem is is that its fast paste so when I was running I reset my breathing and when I was waiting in line I did air squats. Thank you so much for making it easier and doing these tips got me back in shape in no time.

  • Tl:dr we need Apple patents

    Funny story about the red delicious, the ORIGINAL apple was really good but because it was so recognizable a bunch of copies appeared in the market because the demand was so high, these new apples focused on looks rather than flavor so they taste gross but a real red delicious is very good.

  • It works for me I just farm so I can get the dark knight faster for 63 round 63 is the only hard level if you playing a hard map other than that this does work and does work in alternate Bloon rounds thanks����

  • 1:08 Wait where Michigan’s Upper peninsula? I live in the U.P.:( Edit: I dont like how maiden said she hopes that all breaburns burn because breaburns to me are really sweet and good.

  • Good advice, but people are different. What resets my breathing is breathing deep, and holding it in for a few seconds, several times. Your method makes it worse. I think it people who inhale too much vs. People who exhale too much.
    You learned what works for you, not what works for everyone.

  • Please help me by giving me a tips. I am from INDIA and liked your all videos. How to run 1600 meter within 6.5 minutes. Needs best tips from you on how to prepare.. please help. ��

  • My run bud talks a LOT while we run, that it tires me sometimes. I always would tell her, “don’t talk to me” since i cannot talk back easily (catching my breath). I guess she IS doing something right.. will have to learn to slow down!

  • Don’t you think it’s easier to inhale through the mouth when you’re catching your breath since you get more oxygen than inhaling through the nose?

  • Thank you for this strategy, it is super easy now, i just need to add a few more monkeys because of so much extra money, probably make a new one??

  • I did this strat and I had to have 5 of the tier 2-3 super monkeys to get to round 95+a grandmaster ninja and a alchemist 4-2,This strat ain’t that far fetched because I beat everything on medium but I don’t have enough monkey knowledge to do hard as I die because I can’t get the upgrades.

  • I definitely need to try out the 10 air squats, My legs start getting fatigued halfway thru my long run days and it’s hard to push thru those last miles

  • First time watching one of your videos. Very interesting. ���� I like to run and fast walk. Question: do I roll my feet from heel to toe? I feel like I kinda stump my feet. I notice my shoes get worn out from the heel first. Thank you

  • Wow, these are (were) all the reasons I “hate(d)” running! Thanks for the tips, hopefully this will get me back on the pavement:)

  • Awesome tips! Explained really nicely. Also props to the camera person:) two things I’m struggling with currently are side stitches and burning shins/ankles. These make me slow down or have to stop completely. Would love to hear your suggestions on how to overcome these.

  • It’s not supposed to be hard. The more I run the lazier I get so the best tip to keep running is to keep running and then it will get easier and easier.

  • Works perfectly, i always try to get fancy and change the strat for hard mode and end up losing, but this works perfectlyevery time! liked yoyr video

  • Thanks coach Holly, will give those tips a go, have bit of heal pain at the moment, probably because I’ve been doing heal striking but not really aware that I heal strike, or can a sore heal be caused by other things, ����

  • In the Marines I was a horrible runner and my platoon sgt made me start doing our PT runs breathing through two straws. Worked but now I get traumatic flashbacks when I fill up my soft drink.

  • I am seriously impressed that you can run and hold a conversation at the same time. For my videos, I had to mute the footage and go back and voice it over! I love your channel and would be thrilled to collab with you on some videos in the future! Great job!

  • I had a rather serious bike crash about 7weeks ago. Besides having my race bike destroyed, I got some good concussion, and now post concussion syndrome. So can’t ride outside till the brain is “better” in that time, been riding sole on Zwift and loving it. Doing their 4week FTP Booster. Not feeling unmotivated by it. And I actually am riding my bike more often then before.

  • The Japanese boy is saying…..
    “My finger got cut and it hurts. Look there is blood coming out! Why don’t you understand what I’m saying? Your Japanese, Right?
    ��Lol
    All you need to do is turn on captions!

  • Thank you for putting these VLOG’s out. It takes a lot of time to just get my workout in. You do that PLUS you have to setup camera, lights etc., be the director, camera man and make-up (stylin in that one piece ;-)). That has got to be distracting (if I don’t focus on my workout, I soon lose interest and quit), and you do it everyday. You da Man.

  • First video for me here and subscribed u are amazing I was runner 400m one time ago befor the injury running make u body go to the next lvl sorry for my bad English

  • I wish I wasn’t a worthless pile of trash. I wanna be like you but I know that I’ll never be able to be like the amazing person you are

  • Regarding the 2nd tip; there is a cycling drill to focus on smooth and equal pedalling which I incorporate in my esp long runs/races without stopping (keep running): 6 high skips/butt kicks on the right side, then 6 on the left side, 5R/5L, 4R/4L until 1R/1L for a couple of steps, (then restart the whole pattern again 6/6..)once or a couple of sets in a while

  • Personally, difficulty breathing drained me so much, since breathing in/out through nose only my runs have improved. Thanks for the advice.

  • I’ve gone from only being able to run 5 mins at a time, to 20 mins straight running:D Working to get that up to 30 mins, and that’s my whole workout time:)

  • The fact that you can run and talk at the same time. You are on a different level. I jog like that I’m already at 160 beats per min

  • I notice when I run, I feel my right leg is stronger than my left leg. Is there a drill I can do to fix this issues? Or does it has to do with my form?

  • Who else is watching all of Jaiden’s vids over and over during 2020?

    (Also notice that in the animated version of the Jazz Apple sign Jaiden put “ya like Jazz?” under the name. Do it for the Memes!)

  • Look I don’t know what Jazz apples you had but Where I buy them they are amazing. they are crunchy and not too sweet and the skin isn’t to thick. (moste of the time there is bound to be a few bad apples)

  • I’ve been back running for about 6 years, after a 28 year layoff (I’m now 61) and I’ve recently discovered that if I introduce 30sec walks about every 1km to 2km for the first half of my long runs, I always finish much stronger and my overal pace doesn’t really suffer at all. For example, I ran 24km on Sunday, with 30sec walks at 2km, 4km, 6km, 8km, 10km and 13km (the last 30sec walk is delayed as there is a long down hill section from 11.5km to 13km and then I walk at the start of the long run back up this hill). I then don’t need anymore walk breaks after that. I heard about this on this channel a while back, it’s based on Jeff Galloway’s method, although modified to suit my level of fitness. Before this, I would tend to suffer at the back end of my long runs. I averaged 5:05 min per km ( 8:10 per mile) on Sunday, and no I don’t stop my watch when I walk, they are included in that average pace. It works well for me. I started this while coming back from an injury, and for the first month or so every run had walks in them, now it is just the Sunday long run, but that took a couple of months to get to that point.
