Last night I was running a fartlek (just typing the word makes me giggle) run. I was running as fast as I could to the end of the block. Coming towards me on the path, were a group of young people, plugged in with their noses in their phones. I realised they weren’t going to see me so I started yelling and clapping my hands as I raced toward them.
They didn’t look up. I yelled louder. I was going to reach them in seconds. It was at this moment I knew I had two choices. I could either slow down and ruin my interval or I could just run straight through them. I chose to complete the interval.
I don’t think anyone got hurt, but to be honest, I didn’t look back to check.
