    Sometimes we forget what we learn by doing errors, it's not a fault it is part of the learning process

    Some advice from someone who is not quite old enough to be your mom:
    Start everything! Fail to finish the things that don't hold you. But don't be afraid to start and don't be the least bit afraid to let go of anything that doesn't work for you, or to change up your plan halfway through. Because somethings will genuinely be better for you in particular than others, and you just need to keep trying until you find them. (This is not to encourage you to quit as soon as something is hard, but that doesn't seem to be the problem.)

    I didn't find the martial art I do until I was in my 30s. That's okay. I learned a lot along the way.
    The first five or six times I started trying 100 Days of Practice, I failed miserably. That's okay. I learned some stuff along the way (including how high my ceilings were).

    In summary: You're doing great. Try and try again, until you learn how you can best succeed.

    I heard of a guy who tried the one punch man challenge... His doctor asked him to stop because it was really bad for the body !

    Yeah, I think "Average Fitness" sounds very approachable, likeable (damn, I wish there would be a proper English word for "sympathisch") and kind of humble. I would subscribe, but I don't have an account (well, technically I have, but it's pre-Google and not usable any more).
    And if you're shy but do those videos anyway, more kudos to you for leaving your comfort zone

    thanks, I'm actually a shy person to but I've always wanted to do YouTube. I might not be all that good but I'll improve over time.
    I used to just stalk channels on YouTube because I didn't know how to subscribe, but it's up to you if you want to subscribe or not.
    You like the name?

    Don't beat yourself up about it, Aether. To be honest, I find it very admirable that even though you might quit often, you always start something new and get yourself motivated about your new endeavors. And doing videos is quite brave (I think, but I'm a bit of a shy person), so I wish you many cool videos (and I really like the name of your channel!) I would subscribe to your channel, but I don't use youtube like that. I'll definitely check out your videos when you start posting, though.
    Just keep going, fallling and getting up every time is a rare trait

    Right I'm going to get straight to the point. I'm starting a YouTube channel doing darebee workouts and as such will probably delete this thread in a few days. I'm that I can't stick to any routine but I'll tag everyone who supported me here in a new thread that (I'm hoping) to share the videos on.
    Sorry again, it's a reoccurring theme that I start something and never finish.

    Kanary Fremen HellYeah thanks for the words of encouragement. I was going to give up last night but these helped a lot in keeping me going.
    Fremen I kinda enjoy running, I can do running at home as I have a treadmill.
    I'll start again and this time I'll try to incorporate a rest day or two.

    So day 5 defeated me. I knew if I took a rest I'd get disheartened and so I failed. I will start again, this time I'll come up with some kind of plan. I honestly don't know if I can run any further than 1.2km at a time but I need to try, I need to get it in my mind that I can do anything I set my mind to.
    I'm going to restart the challenge and start with an all out go, how many reps in one go and how far without walking.
    I'll update you with the results later.
    Setting reasonable goals is hard. I experienced two ways with aiming high...
    first I was aiming high, fell deep and got frustrated when I had to start over...
    After that I tried to change my mindset...
    ...I have still high goals, but I made myself aware, that there are day where I have to rest or have no time to do everything, That still bothers me, but I does not mean I failed with all I had already done. It is just a little break. The important part is that I will go on after that.

    It is not all or nothing, cause everything you do adds up...

    Aether you aren't defeated if you want to restart
    Perhaps you can built this time your own one-punch-man-challenge

    if I had to choose I would do:
    push ups
    sit ups
    squats
    and instead of run: high knees or march steps because i don't like run and i can do all at home without apology

    Why do we fall?
    So we can stand back up.
    You've got this!

    kandy I've been building up to it, I might have jumped up a bit fast but it's only 1 set where as I have done 3x1.2km in the lead up. I'll build up a bit better for the 3k though.

    1k to 2k seems like a jump that's (almost) too big. That can be just me. Please don't be discouraged... I am just saying.

    But I wouldn't do every exercises the same amount, because my ability in each isn't equal, so something like 40 squats, 40 situps, maybe 10 push ups, and 0.5k running. Then build up from there.
    Or 8 rounds of 0.5k

    Day 4 of the challenge done.
    10 push ups
    10 sit ups
    10 squats
    1km run
    2 rounds.

    Tomorrow is a rest and then a PR attempt, 20 push ups, sit ups, squats and a 2km run... that's gonna suck .
