Whilst I like most of these - WHO ON EARTH TAKES FLASHCARDS WITH THEM RUNNING? HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?
Like ‘bye mum i’m just going to do a bit of studying down on the trails…. I’ll probably be back in about 3 hours because I’m going to have to run ridiculously slow so I can read and run at the same time and watch out for things on the floor and people going by and possible cars and traffic lights and I’ll only be doing a short route but it will take me so long because I’m taking my flashcards with me’.
Just thought that was such a funny addition to longer runs. Please remember that this comes from a law student so all my flashcards are pretty jam packed with writing - I’m sure if you did something like art this would be great because you’d have some pictures to look at whilst you run - god forbid that you try and look at the natural world around you!
I’m joking. (mostly).
Thank you so much! And your English isn’t bad at all. I’m not a native speaker either as I’m from Sweden.
- You’ll be amazed at what your body can do when you push it beyond what you call limits.
- It’ll make you want to swear and punch something.
- You’ll want to cry tears of joy when you burst a PR, and you’ll probably be in disbelief.
- You’ll learn how to push yourself in ways you’d never imagine.
- You’ll probably want to cry, or just sit on your couch and not do it.
- But it’s the best thing in the world.
- It’s something that you have complete and utter control over.
- You control how fast and far you run, and that’s a beautiful thing.
- It’s YOU that is pushing those limits, and doing things that you thought could never be done.
- It’s all you.
- You are your own motivator.
So stop making excuses and saying “I don’t have time” or “it’s too cold out!”. Suck it up, because dedicated & determined runners don’t let anything come in the way of success.
