A Lot of Runners Think About How Awful Running Is
If you've ever been running and thought to yourself, "Man, I HATE this," don't worry! You're not the only one.
I'm one of those people that exercises because I have to, not because I want to. I'm always so confused when I see people who look like they're enjoying their run, because I am absolutely miserable when I'm doing it. It turns out that during a run, 1/3 of the time is spent thinking about how terrible it is.
- 32% of your total running time is spent thinking about the pain and suffering
- 40% is spent thinking about pace and distance
- 28% is spent enjoying the scenery
If you're me, 100% of your run is spent thinking about food and wishing your life would end. Just looking at pictures of runners exhausts me!
Are these stats accurate? Or do you think about other things while you're out for a run? Leave a comment below.
