Run! They’re chasing you! Run!

4 March, 2009

My housemates and I had agreed to go running tonight, so I’d been psyching myself up all day. One by one they made their excuses, but it would have been a waste of perfectly good psyche to not go, so I went anyway.

Judging by the number of songs, I ran for a good 20 minutes. It’s been a long time since I last ran anywhere, so I’m very happy with that.

I failed to get a satisfactory amount of mud on my trainers. I’m going for that “yeah, I get up at the crack of dawn to go running every day” caked-on look, but it needs some work.

Observations:

  • I turn an alarming colour when I run, but I feel much better than I look.
  • My heart and lungs work better than my legs.
  • You can’t freewheel downhill when you are not on a bike.
  • With the right soundtrack, anything is possible… even enjoying running.
  • If, at the end of your run while you are still hot and out of breath, you go into a shop, pick up a big tub of icecream and stand in the queue, you will get some very odd looks.
