When I run, I talk to myself and these days it's driving me crazy. It's not like I'm going to say something I don't know. I don't just think about stuff, it's like I'm narrating my own run, or giving myself a play by play of what I'm thinking. Then I'll notice I'm doing it and I'll start talking to myself about that!
I was reading an interview of Anton Krupika here and he says it well:
"... However—and this is the tricky part—the moment I realize that I’m not thinking about anything, then I am thinking about the fact that I’m not thinking about anything and the moment is lost. ..."
My problem is that I never achieve the non-thinking part, referred by some, I believe, as "flow".
So this is my new project: shut the f@#k up. I need to turn off my brain when I run.
