Beware the pixie of paranoia

Feeling smug about how well your training is going?  Congratulating yourself on being niggle-free?  Experiencing a surge in motivation?

I was, until the pixie of paranoia came a-calling, leaving me with two broken feet and a broken rib*.

She’s an evil little so-and-so, that pixie.

*Translation: feet that are slightly sore from all the downhill running at the Midsummer Munro, and a rib which is aching mildly after yesterday’s fall in the forest.

    Those pixies tend to be swarm during summer months. Just when you think your getting the hang of things, this running lark is getting easy…….thump!! Feet, shins, knees, quads, chest, back, shoulders……. it’s like a midge attack!! Although no less annoying without the itching lol!
    I second “be careful with the ribs”. Need to set the running mojo to “eat those paranoia pixies!!”

  6. I know them well.
    They’re all having a party around mine…

    Pixie of paranoia
    Dwarf of dawdle
    Warlock of whinging
    Orc of awkwardness
    Imp of imperfect way of finishing comments…
