Dear teachers,

A "Youtuber", who claims he teaches British English, recently, said that the following sentence is grammatically wrong:


1. Every day I run in the park before I start work.

He insisted that it should be,

2. Every day, I go running in the park before I start work.


His argument was, if one "runs for pleasure or as a leisure activity", then, sentence 1 is not grammatical.

I tried analysing the two sentences but I did not see the meaning that he was suggesting.


I should appreciate it if I could have your opinions.


Thank you very much.

A "Youtuber", who claims he teaches British English, recently, said that the following sentence is grammatically wrong: #1 is not grammatically wrong.

But runners (including me) more often say #2. It stresses more that the running is for fun, and not for example because you are always late for work.


1. Every day I run in the park before I start work.

He insisted that it should be,

2. Every day, I go running in the park before I start work.
