I had a kid in college, Anatoly, we were all 17, he weighed 120kg (illness) and he always did 100% of his best in all the campaigns. We asked him why, because it's hard for you! He said, himself to prove it!!! .... Respect.

I ran a few years ago a half-marathon in Norway, the Arctic Circle, the winter; I managed to run there, went to a hotel, took a shower, had a rest, and then went shopping with my wife. The finish line was being dismantled next door, the fences were already in place.

I heard applause: I saw a guy, half-running and half-running, overweight, barely breathing, but stubbornly making his way to the finish line. It must have been five hours since the start...

And I was standing there, applauding, too. He was smiling and waving, too.

Leaving his health issue out of the equation, it was 10 or 20 times harder for him than those who ran twice as fast. Put myself in his shoes, could I do that? I'm not sure... He wanted to prove something to himself and he did.

Not a marathon, of course, but when I was at university, in my first year we had physical training.

So while we were running lazily around the field, Grandpa overtook us three times at full speed. After that, he calmly went to the bar, pulled up, threw his legs over his knees on the tube of the bar, and started rocking his abs, he did not get off for 20 minutes.

To this day, I still have a memory of it. Huge abs, no body fat, not big muscles, but obviously muscles of stone, and very much sunburned because he regularly ran in the sun in short shorts.

When I went up to him to ask him how old he was, if it's no secret.

He laughed and said something like, "Son, he's 88 years old."

And that's when I fell out. Good motivation to start taking care of myself.

Once my dad and I were sitting on a bench in Petrovsky Park, chatting. It was late summer or early autumn, I do not remember, but the weather was great - just a classic Moscow beauty - not hot, not cold yet, the sun was warm, the breeze was light. It was 15 years ago, then there was the old Dynamo stadium and small sports arena nearby. And there were kids in the park, probably from the children's team, they must have been 10 years old.

The activity was that they were running laps around the park. It's a big park, so they'd run past us every 20 minutes or so.

And here's the picture: a bunch of boys running by briskly. Laughing, talking, someone pushes someone, immediately on the run to find out the relationship. In general, having fun. A minute or two goes by, and a chubby kid runs by, maybe even fat. He's running and you can see how hard it is for him - all red, sweaty, fists clenched, eyebrows furrowed, legs can hardly move. But he runs. As he ran along, I could even hear him whimpering softly as he exhaled.

And with each lap, the break between the jolly boys and this kid got longer and longer.

I had such mixed feelings when I looked at him that it's been a long time, but I remember seeing him like it was yesterday. And pity, and even laughter somewhere, and embarrassment for being funny. But most of all - respect. Yes, he ran the longest, but ran the same number of laps in the end. All red in the face, in tears, through the roof, but he ran.

And I wouldn't have been surprised to hear that he was the one who ended up being one of those boys who went on to become a professional athlete.

If you're not ready to run at least 6 minutes per kilometer, forget about long distances and competitions. It's clear that it doesn't apply to the guy with the CPU, but to the average guy, 100%. Anybody can get into a fight once, especially if you're in a crowd. And the sense is to train for half a year, lose weight, improve health and run normally. And from such self-overcoming much more harm than benefit.

Bought myself a ticket to participate in the mega-march in August this year, where I have to walk 100 km in 24 hours. Decided to test myself, too.

Hide Show +303 Author avatar Sandello33 13 May 2021

Been there. First time I did 50, cracked the skin on my foot, no more. Then I waddled around the house for another week. Sneakers let me down, though.

The second time I did the whole 100 in 22 hours. You need old, time-tested sneakers. More socks and snacks for the road. It's important to keep your pace and not break in the beginning or your legs will quickly get hammered. Any scuffs, chafes on your feet immediately glue with a Band-Aid. If you score - after 10-20 km it will be impossible to walk.

If you really want to walk, I advise you to take this event seriously. Read how people walk, all sorts of gimmicks there and laifkaki, so to speak. It seems like just a walk, but after 70 km for me began to overpower myself. All that I have not paid attention to in the beginning or not fully eliminated. After 90 km I was walking solely on the moral will, reflecting on life and the futility of being...

In general, I sincerely wish you good luck!

Is it even possible to run sometimes in this activity? The thing is, I get my lower back clogged up by walking. I don't know what it is. Of course, I have to go to the doctors. And how do I know. My battery died in a remote village of three houses. No cell phone service. The nearest stick on the antenna is 10 kilometers away. So me and my partner went. That's when I noticed that after a mile and a half my lower back was a bone. My legs were going but I could not bend or straighten up. My partner told me to go for a run. I went for a run. After a run I felt some relief, but then I was walking again and my back was a knot.

Hide Show +6 Author avatar Sandello33 14 May 2021

Well, you need to see a doctor, that's for sure. At the very least, we should find out what's causing it.

And about the event... how does it go? "If you wanna go, go." If you want to run - run) To make you understand, such events are usually held on rough terrain, because walking on the asphalt such distances are not kamilfo. But even on the ground from running calf muscles clogged pretty quickly (of course, much depends on fitness, shoes and running style), and in general, at some point, the muscles are also "stump", and your feet will refuse to carry you further or anywhere. Surely someone has walked such distances (alternating walking and running). You have to try it.

By the way, if you have a desire to run/walk cross-country, I suggest you consider a discipline such as rogaining. It is a multi-hour (formats range from 4 to 24 hours) orienteering on the ground. These events are usually well organized. Fees for participation there are minimal. They give you a map with marked checkpoints and walk/run to collect. The only thing you need to learn how to use a compass first, but it's not difficult.

And now it's time to talk about justice. I do not believe in its existence, but as a concept, justice is present. What do we usually mean by justice? That someone got what they deserved? Alternatively. Also, justice is that the person who works hard will get more benefits than the person who does nothing at all. And now imagine that we are all different, that each of us has a unique variation of genes and behavioral traits, in some cases, some of us, like the guy in the video has a brain disease, and some of us have an endocrine system disorder and with an outwardly quite prosperous image have serious endocrine or neurological abnormalities. And sometimes even small deviations from the "norm" are enough to consider a person lazy or stupid. Here we come to the question, is it fair that a lazy person gets less than a hard-working person? Of course you will say "yes, it is fair, because a lazy person cannot overcome his nature, show willpower and become industrious" and you will be wrong in most cases. Nature, or rather the evolutionary mechanisms have arranged our life in such a way that lazy individuals are just as necessary to society as hardworking ones, these things are strongly interrelated. And nature has made sure that hormonal disruption occurs more often in some people than in others, which, in turn, ensures evolution. But back to justice. A guy with cerebral palsy walked 5 kilometers in 23 hours, he spent 23 times more energy, perseverance, and time than all of his teammates. Is it fair that he gets an award for last place because he put in so much more effort? No, of course it's not fair. So is it fair that a hard-working person (and my neuroscientist friends and I now know that hard-working is not trained, but is a genetic factor) gets more? No, of course not, a hard worker has in his arsenal of excellent hormones and energy, a benchmark enthusiasm, an inexhaustible motivation that drives his genius forward. The same applies to smart people, they are smart by nature, they grasp any subject on the fly, many answers to complex questions arise by themselves in their head. Would it be objective to compare a lazy person with a workaholic and a smart person with a fool? I am sure that no, a lazy person needs much more inner strength and willpower to perform a simple task, just as a fool needs to spend more time and energy to solve a simple example. For this reason, although all people are different, we are all equal. You cannot blame a person for being lazy or stupid or, for example, making a lot of mistakes in words or putting a lot of unnecessary commas, because we were born with this, these are our inborn characteristics. Is it possible to train them? In some cases it is possible, but in most cases it is doubtful. Just answer , is it possible to train a person with an intelligence level of standard 120 units to understand Perelman's solution of Poincarie's hypothesis?

Hide Show +7 Author avatar CNHNY 14 May 2021

Seems right, but imho and achievements are valuable by their result, and not by the effort invested for quite understandable reasons - people who could do something, benefited. I'm not saying that's a good thing, but any work is valued by its result, not by how hard you tried. If I come to work tomorrow and suddenly do a designer's job, I'm probably terribly tired and won't do anything good. And clients don't pay for the fact that the employee is fucked up, but for the outcome of the labor itself, so no one will praise me.

I understand your point of view, but imho this view is harmful and counterproductive. Success always involves working on oneself, if one takes one's laziness or stupidity as a given, one may just put one's hands down and not try to correct it further.

Hide Show +3 Author avatar GrafVecher 14 May 2021

I thought about it, but that is the paradox of our existence. People with a well-functioning hormonal system don't need extra motivation, they have a natural drive and desire to fight boredom. Have you ever seen a buddy-aholic who watched a motivational movie? And I have not, because they are motivated by themselves, boredom is their best motivator. and now a more complicated question, have you seen a person who is essentially lazy, who thanks to some magic inner mantra, repeating them several times a day, suddenly became a druggie? I haven't seen it. But in general, not to give up is our natural mechanism, a motivation as a belief in God, there is a popular misconception that if all become atheists, then all will begin to commit crimes, that man needs a psychological barrier that would stop at the sin. As practice shows, they do not need it, normal people's normal functioning brains do not allow them to commit crimes, because it is simply unacceptable for someone, as dictated by their hormones, their genetic memory, their "biology". So in motivation, the motivator for people will be "biology", not mythical willpower and motivational verse in the morning.

And in general, our history shows that people worked 100 and 200 and 1000 years ago, when no science had been developed and people worked not for "I'm strong and can do everything" but simply because that's how they are built.

Hide Show +1 Author avatar qanto 14 May 2021

Totally agree with this and the comments above, except for the motive to commit crimes. It's a lot more complicated than that.

Hide Show 0 Author avatar CNHNY 14 May 2021

But then why do we sometimes have to force ourselves to do something? If motivation is inherent, then is there any point in working on yourself? I see that after some effort I can do more than I can do without making any effort. That is, "natural" motivation certainly exists, but we can manually move its limits.

And to what extent we can move it - here imho and the truth everyone has his maximum. But I think that this maximum is high enough for all of us.

I'm just lazy, some things are interesting to me, but it can be hard to work 7 hours, I get tired of concentrating. However, if you say to yourself "I have to", then, in principle, everything works out. If I viewed laziness as some kind of constant natural constant as a trait of my character, I would achieve a lot less. Many people, without fantastic motivation, simply cultivate discipline and get quite good at it. You can look at the ability to follow discipline as some predetermined number too, of course, but I think most people are capable of it. Otherwise, what are the options? To tell a lazy kid that here's a failure, there's no reason to try and exert yourself?

P.s. I do not consider workaholics, as this is not the healthiest option and the motivation for workaholism, as well as many other "-isms" is often unhealthy and comes from avoidance of real life, for example.

Mom will soon be 82 years old, my brother is in his 50s. When my mom is at home (almost 365 days a year), he does not even heat up the soup, he waits until my mom puts it on the table, and then cuts the bread. When my mother leaves for a week or two, she warms it up first, and then she buys food, at least dumplings, at least stewed meat, but she cooks pasta and eats it with stewed meat. And he even eats clean plates when his mother comes home, i.e. he washes something.

So what? Genetic laziness succumbs to survival? I, seriously, I'm not being facetious, I don't get it.

Oh, just don't now, to all the other commenters, swear at your mother. What grew up is what grew up. My dad died when he was 12, I was 5. But somehow we're different, even though we have the same family. My mother swears at him and I swear at my mother for letting me do that, but it's been like that for a long time.

It's adaptation, that is, no unnecessary movements, according to the situation. I'm like that myself. In the army, I used to move around a lot, whether you wanted to or not. Personally, I need a kick in the ass.

This is a learned helplessness, if I may say so (don't throw your boots at the experts, please). If they give you, take it, if they beat you, run. But as you yourself write, really, it all comes from childhood(

And what else is a mother to do what? On the contrary, it's good that she has some responsibilities. Old people live as long as they feel useful.

On the one hand yes, on the other hand, she is always on edge about what will happen to him when she's gone. Well, my mom is very active, in winter (from November to March) she walks, in summer she goes to the vegetable garden alone (if I'm not there), potatoes, tomatoes, etc. I do not mind, as it is easier for her in the air. But the fact that my brother does not want to take her there in the car my mother bought, because he is lazy. That's where it burns me up. He lives his whole life on her money, cars (they have changed several times) on her money. (I also provided for me, I who-mu not to be written off as envy). Man, I do not give a shit about the money, I do not give a shit that she walks to the place where the buses stop going there, and then still walks from that stop, when there is a car under the house that she bought ...

If you believe modern scientists neurobiologists and geneticists, then your brother's disease or hormonal malfunction is to blame for this situation, possibly a brain disorder, and in some cases, stresses suffered in childhood greatly alter the endocrine system of a person. I am sorry for your loss, I do not really want to bring up the subject, but still at the age of 5 the loss of a father is perceived much easier than at 12, maybe it was the reason for your brother's change of behavior. Once again I apologize if I hurt his feelings. Unfortunately, at our stage of medical development, there is no way to fix the situation, except to try to pass tests by an endocrinologist. For example, I have felt the most dreadful apathy and fatigue, as well as the strongest laziness, when my testosterone has drastically decreased. Every day with taking this medicine was like a new life, it was an incredible feeling, from lazy and phlegmatic I turned into a workaholic and optimist. Just think, 1 hormone and how much its proportion in the body can change a life.

But the main idea is different, don't blame your brother, accept him as he is, it's nobody's fault that he behaves this way, let alone his own. You either have to help him or accept him.

You know, I can believe that it's not his fault. Like my mom says, he was stabbed when he was a kid. I mean, he was a sickly child, unlike me. And then he had 2 C.M.T.'s and he had a plate in his skull. But, how do you understand the differences in behavior when there's someone to take care of him and when there isn't? You can just do nothing, and when she is gone, you can even cook and do the dishes? Is it just laziness on a basic domestic level to not wash a spoon if there is someone to do it?

That's a pretty controversial statement. Would it be fair if a person who came to a running competition and was the last to run would get a gold medal for perseverance? And whoever ran first gets a silver medal, just because he didn't have to put as much effort into it?

Hide Show +4 Author avatar gayarsenic 14 May 2021

To be fair to that guy, I'd personally give him a separate award for perseverance in that case.

At one event in my presence, they gave a medal to a man of 70+ years, who had no chance to be the first, but he made it to the finish line. And they awarded him just out of respect, not a gold or silver medal, but just this.

After all, gold and silver are given for the best time, not for the greatest will to win. I'd say they're different categories. So don't even compare the fastest runner and the guy with cerebral palsy. They won in different categories.

Is it fair that a runner with short legs will never come in first, even though he will train much harder than the first? Our system of value judgments is flawed, thinking in categories is self-defeating.

It is fair that a person with short legs will not be a runner, but will do something he is good at. All people are not initially equal. Fairness is the equality


opportunities, not equality in general. That is, anyone should have the opportunity

to become something. If you can do it, good for you, if you can't do it, sorry. Otherwise we'll come to exactly what we have in the West, when trans people win in women's sports - it's not their fault they weren't born female, right?

I worked 12-hour shifts in a bakery as a dough maker. But while the batch was being baked and the dough was ready, I could sit down for 20-40 minutes. Then I found myself in a bakery, where the shift was 24 hours, and as a baker, and even more functions were thrown on. I worked twenty-four hours a day in two, but I survived for a month. Tears came out of my eyes until I found another job. The end of the '90s, I had to put up with all kinds of work.
