“You’re faster than the fat people who didn’t come out running tonight”

This was something mentioned to me and my running buddy at the running club last night. We were feeling a bit self conscious at how slow we were compared with the rest of the group given our time away from the club. And this guy said “however slow you are, you’re still faster than the fat people who didn’t go running tonight”. I thought that was a great way to look at it. Even if you’re having a bad run you’re still miles ahead of everyone watching TV at home. Happy Thursday!

p.s. It was 400m reps, repeated 8 times with recovery in between. There were times where I wasn’t sure I would ever get enough oxygen to catch my breath! Good session, and I remembered my bug spray too.
