There is a university near my home, and many students run there every night, and I also joined the school's night running army.
One afternoon after get off work, I drove to the school stadium as usual. At this moment, there are quite a few people in the stadium. I changed into sportswear, put on headphones, listened to passionate music, and after doing a few simple warm-up exercises, I started running. My heart became full of enthusiasm, and I felt that I could easily win a marathon . But as always, when I ran to the second lap, I started to pant and my pace slowed down. Because I am fat again, my physical strength becomes more easily overdrawn than before.
Just when I was struggling to consider whether to stop and walk, a girl in a pink tight vest and black sweatpants passed me by. She was not fast, but she ran very rhythmically. I thought to myself, how could I not let a girl pass me, so I was so heartbroken, I hurried a few steps, sprinted forward for 50 meters, and easily left the girl behind. But my limited physical strength couldn't sustain the fast running. Slowly, my rushing pace slowed down again, panting heavily while pinching my waist with my hands, and half-walking, half-running. Just when I decided to stop and take a slow walk, the girl in red rose ran past me again, still at the same speed and rhythm. "Let's go ahead, buddy, take a walk first, take a while, and catch up with you when your strength recovers..." I thought disdainfully in my heart.
Next, I started to observe the crowds in twos and threes on the runway while walking. Some of them were walking slowly while talking, some ran and stopped sometimes, some were sweating profusely, and some were running carelessly. Running is really a very interesting thing. It can not only expose your physical strength, endurance and speed, but also reveal your character to others through your running posture and demeanor. After walking for about two minutes, I felt that my panting was no longer so painful, and my physical strength seemed to have recovered, so I decided to continue running. I couldn't help but look for the girl who had just passed me in the stadium, thinking I must catch her by now. After glancing forward, I didn't see her, and I figured she'd probably finished running and went back to rest. As a result, at this moment, a rose-red light flashed from my right side. That's right, that girl, she passed me again, still at the same pace of running at a constant speed. At this time, I had completely given up the idea of chasing the girl, and the wisdom of this decision was confirmed after I was overtaken by the girl for two or three laps later.
So, I began to look for various seemingly high-sounding reasons as the reason why I couldn't catch up with the girl in Meihong. But after looking for all kinds of reasons, I suddenly understood a truth: If you don't work hard, you will never catch up with those running at a constant speed.
People who run at a constant pace are those who can control themselves. They will find their own rhythm, and then control themselves according to this rhythm for a relatively long period of time.
People who run at a constant speed are those who can endure loneliness. Just imagine, when a person perseveres and silently works hard to do something according to his own rhythm, he will rarely have a partner, because everyone's rhythm is different, even if there is occasionally, it is just to accompany him. It's just a journey.
Those who run at a constant speed are those who work silently. They are generally very low-key and rarely show off, and you can't even find the slightest record of their private life in their circle of friends. Pleasure and pastime are yours, but they are working hard in silence.
When a person starts running at a constant speed, he is really running seriously. When you are still hesitating whether to run, they have already left you far behind.
Hey, friends, run, go at a constant speed according to your rhythm, let others catch up!
