Driving to work this morning, Ellie and I got on the subject of the clock in her car. She sets it between 6 and 9 minutes ahead, and every so often adds or subtracts a minute, presumably to keep us guessing. I've seen this done many times, with alarm clocks, kitchen clocks and so forth. The general concept, I assume, is to hurry yourself along feeling that you are late. It drives me crazy.
My argument is this, I am in no mood to perform mental gymnastics when we are already running late in real life. Secondly, no matter what time it actually is, being 10 minutes behind is just added stress and will make me drive like a lunatic.
I am curious how wide-spread this stress inducing tactic is being used in the 2FNS community?
Since starting 2 Fat Nerds in 2011: 4 half marathons, 1 triathlon, many 5ks and a whole host of new friends made.
Fitness is more than just exercise. Finding a good balance between healthy eating, exercise and a strong community of friends is what this blog is all about.
