“Embrace Difficulty and Discomfort for Personal Growth.”
Beautiful! Thanks Benjamin Hardy for writing this. I never tried fasting, but I’ve been doing long-distance running for a while and I can tell it works.
Last year I managed to run a marathon despite having contracted pneumonia 6 weeks before the race, which kept me in hospital and in bed for 2 weeks, leaving me 4 weeks to re-train from scratch.
Having trained for difficulty and discomfort before getting ill, I decided I could do it. My first run after recovering was barely 1 kilometer - it felt like 100! - and after 4 weeks of daily suffering I managed run the marathon anyway.
I didn’t do the time I was aiming for, nevertheless I completed the race in a rather decent time (5:03' for the records).
If you can go through this, you can do things that look superhuman!
Fasting or running (or both), do it and discover a new you!
