In a recent viral video, YouTube fitness star Kyle Nutt tried running one mile every day for 30 days in a row, and he was pretty surprised by the results.
“We all understand that running helps your health, but what else can it do?” he asks at the start of the video. Nutt begins the challenge by running at a steady 9:19 pace. By day 13, he made great progress, finally reaching below a 7:30 mile pace.
“I’m getting to where I can run a couple of miles without heavy breathing,” he says. “For my next runs, I will really push myself to see how fast I can get a mile done.”
But he also says he is not trying to get insanely fast timing.
“This is not about running as fast as I can, it is more about seeing if running makes me feel better,” he says. “I was feeling pretty lethargic today. And now I feel ready for my day.”
Nutt also says he wants to do every run in the morning. “I always try to get these runs done because I feel like it is the best way to start my day. And I feel like if I don’t do it, then I just do not feel as good during the rest of the day,” he says.
“The only bad thing I found about running every single day was your body not getting a rest day.” he says. Overall, though, the YouTuber says the pros greatly outweighed the cons.
“The concept of running on a regular basis and using that in your routine can be very helpful for a lot of folks,” he says. “There was no denying that my runs made me feel more motivated and overall, I just really enjoyed the way I felt when I was running everyday.”
