I saw these words before, but did not really pay attention to it. Only recently did I realize that it is actually true.
This afternoon I got home from work and between taking a call, get the washing in the machine and installing Outlook on my PC, I also managed to get dressed and in no time I was out the door and onto the road. I had to go for a run. I had no plans to run today, but the trip from the office to home was just hectic and when I got home I was so tensed up and that is when I realized that the only way I was going to unwind was to hot the road. And I did.
I just started running and ended up doing a nice fast paced 7km run at an average pace of 5:21 per kilometer. For me, as an average runner, that is fast.
Fact is, we live busy lives so it is not always possible to get a good workout fitted into out busy schedules, but the main thing is that we have to make time for it, we have to make time to get that balance worked into our busy lives. Get your workout in, no matter what, whether it’s before work, during your lunch hour or after work. I really recommend a workout at least three or four times a week, and for the serious, ever five times a week. As a runner I try to hit the road at least three three times a week, excluding the races we do.
Just remind yourself again that anytime is a good time to run, or workout, if you are not a runner. Just do something and live the best possible healthy life that you can. Remember the words of Steve Prefintaine, “To give anything less than your best, is to sacrifice the gift.”
