Have you ever had a workout that completely changed the outlook of your day? For me, this seems to happen frequently. Maybe it was a day when work and life stress collide creating a squeeze on your available time. Maybe you simply wake up on the wrong side of the bed and cannot get out of a funk that is making you a bear to be around? On these days, get out the door.
As you have heard me say many times throughout the years, endurance training should make you a better person. It should make you a better husband, wife, father, mother, friend, co-worker, and boss. It should make you more fun to be around. If this is not the case for you, you might need to find another hobby. Going on a run should make your day better, and in turn, make the days of those around you better.
I was once told that you will rarely regret getting a workout in. I think about this often on busy days when I find a way to get the workout in despite this. It is true – you rarely regret it and somehow still find a way to get the other stuff done as well. So, next time the world colludes against you and your workout, just get out the door.
