Thoughts of a Non-Runner During a RunPosted on April 10, 2014 at 2:29 pm
Bottom line…I hate cardio. Okay, I don’t hate cardio, I hate running. But I like to keep my body guessing and randomly go running instead of doing a HIIT routine sometimes. I think that running is important so I don’t neglect it even though I usually want to.
Today I thought it would be fun if I shared some of the thoughts that go through my head while I’m running.
“Why did I wear my hair in a bun? Buns never stay during a run. I should’ve done a ponytail. I guess I HAVE to stop and take a break to take the bun out and change it to a ponytail…”
“I kind of have to pee. I’m only like 5 minutes away from the house. Maybe I should just turn around. It’s only gonna get worse. Or I can find a bush to pee behind. But that’s not socially acceptable. Plus I don’t have any toilet paper. Holding it, it is…”
“I really should’ve worn pants. My butt is eating these shorts, I can feel it. They keep getting higher and every time I yank at them a car passes by and sees me picking a wedgie. Fail…”
“I’m hungry. Maybe I should just jog to my parents and have a snack and then have my Mom drive me home…”
“That guy has been going the same way as me for like a minute. I know he’s following me. There’s no way he’s just exercising. I’m going to end up on the news as a missing person. I hope he sees this pink taser that I’m holding. I will shock a bitch…”
“Okay I’ll run to that pole down there and then take a break. *Makes it halfway to pole* “I’ll just take a break now and run longer once I pass the pole…”
“I wonder if the people I’m passing on the sidewalk can hear how heavily I’m breathing. I really need to run more so that I don’t sound like a broken vacuum cleaner…”
“I’m a personal trainer. I can run 3 miles without stopping…set, go. I’ve got this. Find a good pace. Screw this I’m going back to the house to lift weights…”
And now you’ve been in my head while I’m running! I left out the Luke Bryan lyrics that I belt out…you’re welcome (; On a serious note…I honestly do think running is important and when I do go, I suck it up and always feel great when I get home.
But still…don’t put me down for cardio.
