Talking a good run

So on today’s run I covered 6.8km in 42 minutes. Well I did after giving myself a good talking to, anyway.

Sometimes when I’m running it’s like having a little devil and a little angel on my shoulders. The little devil whispers things like, “Ooh this is tough today isn’t it. You could slow down a bit when you get to the road.”

And the little angel pipes up, “You know, you’ll only be cross with yourself if you walk any of this. You’ve done it before, so don’t give in.”

And it goes on. All the way round the route I’m cajoling, complaining, persuading and rewarding myself for going just that little bit further, just that little bit faster this time.
