12 Problems only runners understand


When you run out of clothes the problem isn't what you're going to wear to dinner it's what you're going to wear on your next run. When you're forced to sit on the sofa in front of the TV it's a curse not a blessing. There are some problems only runners can understand. 
 

1.
People asking why you do it. “Like life’s too short to spend so much time exercising, i’d much rather sit on the sofa eating pizza. I mean how can you be bothered?’

Because I’m a better than you. 

2.
SO MUCH WASHING!

I don’t own enough t-shirts to sustain this lifestyle.

3.
The dreadmill. Take a guess how far you've run. Look down at the display.

Wrong.

4.
Stepping in faeces.

Horses are the worst offenders, I mean I thought dinosaurs were extinct…

5.
Crafting the ultimate running playlist.

Then getting sick of it because you’re too lazy to update it.

6. 
The red light dilemma. Do you jog on the spot or stand still.

It’s a choice between looking weird or having your heart rate drop a few precious beats.

7.
Trying to rationalise going for a run in severe weather conditions.

It's probably just a passing shower...

8.
The pain of foam rolling.

Agonising but worth it for the use of your legs the next day. 

9. 
Post-run munchies.

Serious self control is required to stop yourself consuming the entire contents of your fridge. 

10. 
Structuring your social life around your running. 

via GIPHY

I SAID I WOULD BE HERE AFTER I’D BEEN FOR A RUN.

11. 
The restlessness and agitation experienced when injured. 'I think it’s healed, yes maybe i’ll just go out for a light run'.

via GIPHY

Nope you've made it worse.

12. 
Trying not to tell everyone about your running problems. 

via GIPHY

‘Oh yeh that’s just like when I went for a run and...’ ‘nobody cares Susan’.
