Dont knock my run !!!

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

emoticon Smart A** alert Proceed with caution emoticon

I woke up this morning unmotivated ... it happens you Woo Hoo is still in bed and refusing to come and play today * pout*. So I said after coffee well time to get productive. I dress in my favorite running tank lol it is way to big but that tank has hauled me through a lot. Where to do the training because I just dont want to do it Well i have to go to town any way so I will go to the beach and run then run my few errands.

I walk / jog train. Now look I am roughly 260 pounds and I dont look like delicate flower when i jog at all. and I do have a recovering Achilles tendon. To be honest with me there is a lot of self talk in the jog phase. things like " stay with the run" " keep the pace" " dont panic just run " Breath to the beat of the feet ". Hey I know it sounds silly but it gets me through it doesnt have to everyone lol .

I like running at the beach most people are nice lots of smiles and the salt air really clears your mind. Any how I get back to my car feeling pretty good 4 miles in 57 minutes not great but again it works for me . I am at my car and to be honest i wont to puke as unlady like as that sounds. All i want is my water but wait you cant just snatch that up and drink it or you will be sick ( i know this ) so i am stretching out my Achilles Tendon , when there is some beefed up hulk more muscles than manners walks up. And he says You know there are reasons fat people arent suppose to run. OH come on really a fat joke apparently the steroids have eat away his better sense. I go to get in my car and yes i could have let it go smiled and said have a nice day but well no that didnt happen. I got in my car turned over my shoulder and looked he was standing there like he expected me to say really why is that but no that didnt happen either . I said yea I know it is because they make a**es like you look bad. Oh the poor thing look so pitiful He didnt get to finish is fat joke. Never let them have the laugh at your expense . Funny now i have all the motivation in the world now.

    Good for you!! And no matter how buff he is, with a personality like that I would guess either he has few friends, or they are morons like him.

    I think you are my new hero.
    I admit(especially in the beginning) to feeling very out of place when running. Some hot little teeny bopper streaks past me and I would feel like the a slow, wobbly, jello giant.
    Thankfully I have yet to receive that sort of ill treatment verbally, although I have gotten the occasional derisive look.

    Wow - I can't believe that happened! I thought that kind of dumb@$$ behavior only happened in the movies!

    Good for you for knowing your self-worth and not letting his self esteem issues weight you down. If I were in your position I would have engaged, let him tell his joke, and then guilted the sh*t out of him so he would know how much his words can effect people. But you're classier than I am!

    I hope one day he wakes up and realizes that words cut, and I'm happy that you were able to put him in his place and use his inappropriate sense of humor as motivation! You rock!

    That guy is horrible! I love the way you handled it! I am a therapist so I see through his crap and know that the comment he made to you was really about him. He projected is self esteem at you. Happy, confident people display happiness and don't omit negativity. He is feeling awful inside despite his appearance and sees you running with the confidence he wish he had!! Girlfriend keep on holding your head up and smile!!!

    I liked the way you handled this! Sad some people have to bolster their fragile egos by putting other people down.

    I never can think of a quick return in situations like that. So go you!!! At least you recognized he was steroid/brain impaired.

    What a jerk that guys was! Glad you didn't let him get the last word. I hope he thinks twice before insulting someone else and I think 4 miles in 57 mins is an awesome time!

    Good for you and that was a nice comeback. Maybe the steroids are shrinking his brain too!

    Keep up the good work and much success on your journey!

    Good comeback! His life must really suck if he feels like he has to walk around putting down complete strangers. emoticon

    Good for you. Don't let him get you down. I am 248 and I walk/jog as well. It is not a easy thing to day. 4 miles in less than an hour is nothing to take lightly.

    When I first started walking, I had been walking about 2 weeks I was so proud of myself, not only had a set a goal, but I was actually doing it. I have gotten up to 2.5 miles in 45 min. I was on my cool down lap one day and the old man, came up beside me. I had my music on so why he decided to talk to me was beyond me, but he did. When I realized that he was talking to me I took my ear buds off and he said to me, " you have no bragging rights today, you just got passed by an old man" really!

    I will never understand why others feel the need to make people feel bad. Good for us we don't care. emoticon
