Recruiting you all into today's mind game!

I would like to go a run later. The trouble is I have a few hours of other stuff to do first and when later comes I suspect I might be less keen...

I'm telling you all that I would like to go a run later so that it will be harder to back out now that I've told you.

Because every last one of you will be really angry and come after me if I don't go, won't you? :)

  • Of course we are the angry, vindictive runners.....We haunt you in your dreams and your waking hours... oh no that's the zombie run app....

    Nope, you're going to have to rely on good old discipline...

  • The hardest part is getting out of the door. Do it! Think of the high you’ll get after 😊

  • Run first, do stuff later (it will still be there). Easier to avoid the excuses that way round.

    It's why I run in the mornings. I used to tell myself I would run when I got back from work - I'd even put my stuff out to do it - but, you get back, you check the post, an email or two, you know the things that line up to distract. I finally started running by getting out of bed, into my kit and out of the door before I had started to think. It worked. Mornings are still best for me for the same reasons.

    On the other hand, other people might have self discipline, something that I clearly have a desperate deficiency in.

  • We're watching you lady...........

  • Yep... got my running shoes on to chase you :)

  • Run first, run first! Make running the priority. And I love that quote – LOVE IT! I run in the mornings when my willpower is stronger and the excuses have no time to form...

  • Hi Anne! Hope you made it out there. I mostly lurk on the bridge to 10k forum these days.

  • Sorry I didn't get this on time..I was out on my run...so did we run together Anne..I hope soπŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜x

  • Looks like we did. :)

  • Your day sounds like mine, should have run this morning but had too many things to do so I missed out. Looks like my working day tomorrow is now a night shift so I could make my run tomorrow morning!! I hope you got out for your run.

  • I love that thought .... it sums up exactly how I feel. I need it on a t shirt!

  • I can let some zombies loose on you. Then you'll run!!

  • Woohoo! You're great, you lot. I came home from work, glanced at the couch, glanced at the dinner waiting for me but couldn't face coming on here and admitting I didn't go (!) so off I went. Marthadog and I did a 4.6km loop round the streets of Perth. And, inevitably and predictably, I feel good. Thank you. :)

  • You wouldn't have dared show your face on here again if you hadn't run, Anne.

    We can always relax now.

  • Congratulations.

  • Glad you did you run πŸ™ŒπŸ»
