Now, if this is just me I'm going to look silly but...
I almost always run alone and, if I have enough breath, like to say* things to myself to pass the time. My top three are:
- "Contact!" - when another runner is spotted. Stole it from a friend who likes war films. Don't bother saying with cyclists/walkers (i,e, civilians).
- "I need an exit" - When running along tow paths etc looking for the way back onto the road. Stolen from the Matrix
- "I don't eat invertebrates for fun" - When running up big hills/in torrential rain/very early in the morning. Bit of a stretch this, but originally came from Blackadder. Usually panted out breathlessley, syllable by syllable Helps with bloody mindednes.
Anyone else do this? Even if you don't, any suggestions for random things to say whilst running?
* breath permitting
