"Discussion" with myself

Go running.


You have to. It's on your training schedule. And you've been a total slacker for the last week so you have to go.

But it's about to rain.

So? You liked running in the rain last time. And it's cooling off so you won't sweat as much.

But I'm so tired.

You'll be energized when you're done.

What if there is something wrong with me? Maybe I have Mono. I know someone who has it right now. I shouldn't run with Mono.

You do not have mono. Put your sneakers on and get your ass outside.

I don't have to. I'm a grown-up and I control my own destiny.

Of course you are. That's why you're whining like a little baby. Be an actual grown-up and go for a run. If you don't go now you'll pay for it on Saturday during your half-marathon. You do remember you're doing a half marathon in five days right?

Yes. *Huff* Fine. But I don't want to do 10 miles.

Ok. Let's compromise. Do five miles and call it a day.

I'll do it. But I don't have to like it.

You almost inspire me to start running again.

Kind of. A bit.
