How about this, I have an idea so good about exercise that I will give you a money back guarantee that I am right. All you need to do is send some money to my Paypal account and if I am wrong I will send your generous donation back to you. <crickets chirping>.
OK so it looks like no one is taking me up on that offer, so I am going to have to give up this little gold nugget for free.
So tonight I was getting ready to do my workout routine for my CrossFit Endurance marathon training and I ran into a problem I often have. When I do my workout routine at night I am much less likely to actually do it. For me it is so much easier to choose not to exercise at night than it is in the morning. After a long day of working it is easier to use the day as an excuse to not work out.
As you can see by my CrossFit Endurance marathon log (Day 8), the good news is in the end I did the workout that was scheduled.
As I was standing outside between my first and second set of 1200m runs I was thinking about my workout routine, and I realized something, I was enjoying it and was glad I was out there and that got me thinking, how would I have felt if I did not go out the door for my workout routine tonight?
That is when it hit… I have thought it before, I have said it out loud many times before, but it was time to share this priceless nugget with the public. So now after all this buildup are you ready to make that deposit to my Paypal account? No… damn well you cannot blame a guy for trying.
There have been many times I have debated whether to exercise that day or not. There has never once been a time where I chose to exercise and I regretted the decision. Almost every time I ended up not working out I almost always regretted it.
How is that for words of wisdom? Priceless? Yeah probably not, but I can assure you it is true and if you made that deposit to my Paypal account and you later disprove my theory I will gladly return it.
If you ever debate if you should do your workout or not you will never regret doing the workout, but if you don’t go you will almost always regret it.
