  • Cool intro aside, I noticed that you don’t seem to be wearing your Whoop strap anymore. Out of curiosity, what has changed for you?

    (Non Whoop user here. I’m just curious)

  • Thanks for another awesome video, I run about 3 5k’s a week and it completely changes the workouts at the gym. You are 100% right about that. Question though, would you recommend doing abs everyday with Crossfit training? Or how much time should be dedicated to core exercises? Is there any where I can get a Kristi Eramo O’Connell shirt? Or a Pat O’Connell? He’s the man ��

  • can you please make me a video for my run for a forth grade grill thats 9 years old thats runs the ful feald of Glen Yermo Elementry school oh please oh please oh please

  • Hey I’m new to running just wondering why variety is so important? From my common sense view which is not backed up by sciencewouldn’t the body and brain get adapted to one specific type of running and get really good at it instead of getting better over all types of running?

  • This video really helped me because I’m a gymnast and I need a fast run for vault and I also do track! Thank you for making this video!❤️

  • Very helpful video! Thank you ������ I started to run last year and my pace went from 9:10 to 8:54… hoping to keep improving ����‍♀️

  • I gained 20 pounds during my time in Uni. Can I run behind you all day? I would lose the extra weight so fast, and would not even notice the pain.

  • Thanks Dani! I’ve been a decent runner most of my life, but I feel like I JUST learned how to breath correctly.

    I use to get cramps in my sides after running. I use to think it was from not drinking enough water or eating enough before hand, but it was the way I was breathing.
    I did some research and found out I breathed too much with my chest which caused my cramps. Now, I focus strictly on my breathing when I run and try slowing my breath down as much as I can as well.

    The tip: Breath in with your stomach and breath out by pushing your stomach out. I breath deep enough to see my stomach move in and out especially in the beginning of my run to get into that groove. I keep my lips in an O shape like I am blowing out candles and this helps a lot.
    I rarely get cramps after changing my breathing style! You really do improve quickly if you stick to a schedule. A “Runners high” is definitely real. I can feel those endorphins afterwards.

    If you are not a runner use C25k app. “Couch to 5k” My roommate used this app to train for a 5K and she is NOT a runner  at all. I used this app to get me motivated and back to running again. Its a gradual program (8 weeks). There is also a 10K version as well!

  • I have a question when I run all kids of things just flow through my mind and they make me I don’t know weird etc. how do I focused and run

  • I love this video!! I just wanted to say, running has changed my life so much! It’s honestly made me a better person and stronger both mentally and physically! I run Cross Country. I’ve been running for over a year and a half now, and I’m glad I started. It’s made my life so much better. Much love for running!! ��❤

  • It’s not actually good to stop and start walking unless you really can’t handle it. It creates a bad habit of falling back on it, and makes you adjust to running further slower, meaning less progress. Great video though.

  • Wow when i saw her blonde hair, i have a reason now to run, and im a big fan of dynamic streaching too. Have a good life white girl:)

  • How much do you normally run? And what advice/ how much would you suggest for running newbies? I have breathing difficulties and bad endurance while running, but I can run about a mile and walk the rest without hurting myself.

  • Question for Dani or any other runners out there: Do you typically eat anything before you run and if so, what do you eat? When I run immediately after eating a snack I feel sick but if I don’t eat anything I get dizzy… suggestions would be great! Thanks for the tips, they definitely helped! 

  • Dani you’re so awesome and well-rounded. Like you emphasize health and beauty. I really appreciate the variety in your videos, but mostly I like how you are always yourself. In a world where everyone is trying soooo hard to be cool and unique (which is fine, I suppose), you stay true to yourself and are effortlessly cool and unique. It’s definitely refreshing. You make me want to be a better person. Anyway, that was a really long comment. I just wanted to share that with you. YOU DA BEST and I love your channel!:)

  • Amazing information sir.

  • Thank you very much for the great content, I’m loving your channel. You have a really nice way of presenting and talking to camera and you are such a hard worker!

  • Ps. DONT STOMP YOUR FEET that put a lot of pressure on your knees and can really damage the joint. Use the balls of your feet to propel you

  • It took me years to get my breathing just right so that I could go a lot longer. The trick is to train yourself to start off inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth. Once you master that you can inhale and exhale through your nose but remember to keep your breathing steady!

  • I have a roadrun on Friday which is 5 kilometres and I’m 13 this year. what should I eat before the race for energy? I am a school Runner but I only do short distance like 100 meters and stuff

  • Ok guy we made it to number 1 but let’s have honestly mention
    There’s money in Easter egg and take them all and not go easy on siblings
    Ok time for number 1 when their is 1 slice of pizza left and you see someone walking towards it

  • SUMMARY of the video! (:

    1. Relax your shoulders and run tall. ( 1:03)
    2. Slow your breathing with 3:2 breathing ( 1:51)
    3. Run backwards, sideways, etc. to activate supporting muscles ( 2:30)
    4. Use first 15 minutes as steady warmup ( 3:44)
    5. Follow a training schedule, plan out your runs! ( 4:25)
    6. Do dynamic stretches before you run ( 5:24)

  • Top tips as always. Belated congrats on team GB. Hope you re-qualified this year. Love the new look shed and glad you are keeping the sheep out.

  • Hey man, I bought a pair of vivos and am now progressing into barefoot running, but, I was wondering if you also wear these (any kind of barefoot shoe) on non running related activities (walking, going to the market, around your house, etc). Do you also forefoot strike while walking?

    Thank you so much, your videos are pure gold.

  • Very true! I’ve been running way more cause I wanted to run a marathon in October(got postponed) and I find when I run more the cardio heavy WODs aren’t as hard. Great video☺

  • Fantastic to see you back, Steve Keep it rolling!! Currently doing 5k specific training, here. The aim is sub 19 before march. Congrats on the qualify for team gb!

  • Research suggests that the majority of recreational runners who heel strike do not suffer more injuries (they just move the strain from the ankle and achilles to the knee) or travel with less efficiency. Maybe a higher level runner with a certain biometric set up would naturally choose to strike with the fore foot, but it’s not absolutely necessary in order to enjoy running, right?

  • Love the pun at 9:37 “It won’t help you in the ‘long run’” (badum dishhhhhh) I would like to see your stretching routine. Welcome back! I bet FreeLee is wondering why you still have your hair/hairline. I’m having a blast joking about the vegan gestapo with a friend. Cheers!

  • Good vid Steve, I’m a coach at my local running club and so many people just want to run at the same pace day in day out usually quick but not fast if that makes sense? Like you I advocate polarising your training, mostly easy running with a good sprinkling of outright speed and some tempo intervals.
    Personally I’m transitioning into Vibrams but finding it tough, just wondering what shoes you are running in at the moment? I’ve got the V-Run, V-Trail and KSO Evo (£40 bargain) and prefer the KSOs. What are your current goto shoes and would you advocate running in more built up shoes to maintain mileage whilst transitioning?

  • What helps me (and I learned this from a Navy buddy when I was in the service) is for every quarter mile, inhale a deep breath, hold it for three seconds and force blow it out and repeat two more times. This relaxes your muscles which helps with endurance.

  • I really need to get prepared, I plan on joining the Army and I really want to get in. I need to pass the fitness test. In terms of running, I need to run 2km (1.2 Miles) in under 10 minutes and 45 seconds. How do I do this.

  • Maybe someone can relate to this, and give some advice or feedback. I am 54 years old, getting back to running, but now I find that instead of being able to run further, I feel heavy in the legs. I am not obese, only slightly overweight, about 5-7 lbs. I don’t feel tired necessarily, but have no energy and feel, well, just plain heavy-legged. Any idea what I am experiencing? I have tried upping the carbs, but this didn’t seem to make a difference.

  • This was great, I been tryin to find out about “how to accelerate faster while running” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across Ralebney Running Recoilless (do a google search )? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my brother in law got excellent success with it.

Thanks for the tips dude

  • As someone who has been self-taught in running and other areas of physical training, I appreciated finding tips like these to compensate for years of trial-and-error.

  • I’ve been running for abt a year and because of corona, the track season was cancelled. I ofc ran on my own, but I definitely have slacked and haven’t been consistent. The xc season is coming soon, and I hope this helps!

  • I currently suck at running and this guy is so positive and knowledgable, and because of that I am starting to run alot more. Any advice for someone with flat feet?

  • I was wondering I’m a 16 year old male runner who started about a month ago I I have been doing about 3 miles day, at about a 12 min mile and can’t seem to improve that time any tips?
