Why do you suppose this is?

I really didn't want to go to health club today. After all, I'd just gone yesterday! But, since I know I won't be able to workout tomorrow (client presentation), I forced myself.

I started with my 32 minutes of cardio followed by work on my flabby old arms. Then, to mix it up a little, I swapped my usual hip abductor exercises with some leg extensions. And right now, hours later, I still feel so good. Satisfied the way you feel after a job well done.

So why is it that the most satisfying exercise sessions are the ones I do almost under protest?


  1. It's definitely a universal syndrome. I'm the very same way. I joined the gym and went six times.

  2. Maybe b/c you are going unwillingly and anything good is a plus. Glass 1/2 empty, 1/2 full thinking...maybe.
