I run alone. I’ve tried running with people but I’m just too focused on ME to be a good ‘running buddy’. Talking while running makes me run slower, and prefer to run FASTer. So this article my friend just posted on Facebook made me laugh out loud. Thought I’d share it here, in case there are any like-minded solo worker-outers out there. My favorite part of the article is this:
The gym is not a place for talk. The gym is a place for action. Action consists of doing things. Hardcore things. It could be pulling things, or pushing things, or pulling and then pushing things, or moving things around in a circle. It could be lots of things. One thing it cannot be: talking, to another person. Every word you say in the gym reduces the ambient levels of hardcoreness. Being with somebody therefore places you in imminent danger of subjecting yourself to a workout that is just some bullshit.
Hardcoreness. That’s what I like.
