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.
8.5 k slow.
