This post is NOT about motivation or trying to convince you to try to run, in fact I would advise you against running every day.

Running every day means you end up leading a lot of leaderboards

About 700m in I always had to stop and walk for a 100m to gain my breath back. That went on for the next few years, up until I almost graduated from University. Then something changed.
