After yesterday’s treat day, I went to sleep feeling fully spoiled and content.
Small indulgences (not having to cook lunch, Starbucks, pie) really added up to a great day!!
My morning run today reflected it! I felt relaxed and kept a slow steady pace. I was able to push it at the end without feeling exhausted. What a difference a day made!
Monday’s run was agony and I ended up stopping to walk a few steps during it. Today’s run was completely different. Smooth and exhilarating! I ran the whole time except once to avoid being crushed by a garbage truck.
So this led me down a train of thought – should every Tuesday be treat day? Should I allow myself weekly small indulgences to pamper myself along the way?
Eight weeks of rewards or “treats” may include:
- New nail color
- New lip gloss
- New running socks
- New running shorts
- New running tanks
- Redbox movie
- New book either audio or ebook
- New headphones
- Dove chocolate bar
- Hubby cooking dinner!
We’ll have to see what ways I can treat myself without over indulging, but I definitely feel that a hard week of training should be rewarded!!
Do you reward your hard efforts?
