Honestly what is wrong with some people?!?

Just back from Week 4 Run 3 :-)

Usually run along the seafront but thought I'd try something different so ran up the main road instead. On the way back I had to stop at the roundabout to cross the road and a bloke in a car shouted "for God's sake keep up". Not in an amusing way either - really quite aggro! I think he thought I wouldn't hear because I had headphones in. He's bloody lucky I was on the other side of the road - bit premenstrual!!

Just made me wonder why on earth someone would feel the need to do that?

Just laugh at the idiots or turn the music up! You’re doing great to get through W4R3, I did W4R1 yesterday and the second 5 min run nearly killed me but felt great at the end. Just be proud you’re out doing it and not sat behind the wheel of a car being ignorant. 😃

Thanks! My 13 year old son said "you should have flicked him the finger Mum" :-)

The 5 min runs do get easier I promise x

He’s quite right. My initial reaction was exactly the same but politeness stopped me offering that advice! 😎

It's called anger issue. You don't reply or engage with those guys or it could become a step up from anger. Ignore and keep on running!

If they got out from behind the wheel more often they wouldn’t be so angry 😁

Yeah, perhaps. But there's nothing macho about running in the rain wearing silly clothes. ;)

Angry inarticulate screams from inside a German 3 litre engine convertible shows a real man. Bless him.

So a bloke, sat in a car, shouts at you to keep up!! Just think, he was the one sat in the car, you were the one out running, doing physical exercise! He's probably jealous.

Go girl, you'll be chasing his car next!!

People are always so “brave” when they’re in their cars but wouldn’t dare confront you to your face. Sounds like you handled it with dignity though.

Can be quite upsetting, and I really can't fathom why anyone would be like this unprovoked. I have found feeling sorry for idiots like this can help me cope - how horrible to be them! "Imagine being such a person, must be awful, so glad I am me" kind of thoughts. And feel good you are running while they are stuck in a car, probably suffering from road rage! 😄
