You always feel better

While I can't stand over everything below, from my knowledge...

There are things that you never feel better after:
  • A session.
  • Receiving an indictment.
  • A car accident.
  • An extra marital affair.
  • A break-in.
  • Losing by a last minute goal.
 There are things that you rarely feel better after
  • An operation (at least not immediately).
  • Vincent Brown
  • Opening you work email at home.
  • A Big Mac meal.
  • Watching 2 hours of cat videos on YouTube.
  • Taking a phone call from you ex.
And there are things that you nearly always feel better after
  • A lie-in
  • Taking an extra day off work
  • A hot shower.
  • A cold shower.
  • Taking the time to ring an old friend.
  • A massage.
And finally there is one thing that you always feel better after
  • A run.
While the weather might be howling, the rain spitting, the body fatiguing, the work mounting and the daylight fading it is a rare, rare thing to come back from a run and to regret it. If you can always remember this then you will always have just enough energy to get yourself out that door and cover those miles. Yesterday 4 of those 5 boxes were ticked as well as the other one where I was already running late. So it wasn't an easy one but I did get out. And after 8.5 k I came home a little more late,  quite a bit wet, it nearly dark but feeling great.

Yesterday’s training
8.5 k slow.
