Let's Talk About...

You know what they say about how often men think about sex... I have decided that applies to me, only it's how often I think about running.

It is crazy how often I think about running during my waking hours each day! Before I started running, I thought about working out at least a few times a day. I honestly can't remember going a day without at least fleetingly thinking about going to the gym, popping in a workout video, or doing some strength training while watching a little television.

I'm not sure you get it though. I literally think about what my workout will be or that I need to workout EVERY DAY, multiple times a day. The only time it let up even a little was when I taught yoga and other group fitness classes. Those days I just obsessed about the workout routine instead.

Now that "working out" means running, there is even more to think about. When, where, how long, how far, speedwork, tempo run, pace, when I should eat, what I should eat, what to wear, do I need new shoes, training for my next race, what is my next race, and on and on and on.

I can't imagine it, but I am sure there are people who go through entire days without thinking about doing any type of physical activity. Their next workout isn't a constant thought hovering at the back of their brain, waiting for its next attack on their random train of thought process.

  1. As soon as I saw you're title I started singing the song!!! I think I've turned into the crazy runner girl that talks about running all the time!

  2. I am the same way...I can hardly think at work because I am ALWAYS thinking about running, racing, gear, etc... UGH..

    Man I really want that Good Mood Blogger gig too..

  3. Oh how I love the running... it consumes my thoughts 24/7.... You've officially just admitted to the world you have an addiction... welcome to the club. :)

  4. So the good news is I voted for you. The bad news is, I am in the contest too. Best of luck to my running friend...

  5. You're funny. I don't think about running THAT much, but I have certainly enjoyed it for a lot of years.

  6. It's so nice to see someone who thinks about running as much as I do. It is my life. I hesitate to say it is who I am because when I can't run I struggle with the loss of identity. It is my passion.
