We’re all familiar with it – that niggling voice at the back of your mind, telling you that you should reaaaaallllyy go to the gym some time soon. “Go for a run!” it implores you, despite knowing you’re absolutely going to ignore it in favour of sitting on the sofa with a takeaway watching Netflix. You’ll go next week, you tell the voice. You swear you will absolutely definitely go next week. (You won’t. Obviously you won’t).
Well it’s a good thing you ignored it, really, because after watching this video you’ll have conclusive evidence that there’s literally no point.
And for one, basic reason: you are literally never going to run as fast as this seven year old.
And as sports website SBNation points out, his time is incredibly impressive.
“To give an idea of just how ludicrous a 13.48 in the 100 metres is consider this: The world record is under four seconds slower, and the world record for high schoolers is 10.00 seconds. And this is a kid who has barely had time to grow yet,” they write.
And if you don’t believe how fast he is – compare his performance to the slightly lacklustre attempt of the 25 year old who thought he could beat him.
You could take Blaze as inspiration, we guess – if he can train every day to reach his lofty fitness goals, why can’t you?
Or, on the other hand, you could simply give up. If a seven-year-old is this much faster than you already, what’s the bloody point? Now pass us the remote – we’ve got some bingeing to do.
