Run workflow when Certain field Changes

I have a workflow at the moment which emails when a item is created as the status is "pending".

I work like this workflow to also email when an item is marked as "closed"

This works fine but if I change any items e.g. the description. The email is sent again as the may possibly still be set as pending.

I have read many articles that I need to create multiple fields for each column and perform a compare. Is this the only way to do this even in version 2010?

Let the workflow write a value to a tempory column, not visible in the views and content types. Check both values. If both values are not equal to the defined values, send the email. Otherwise don't send it.
