Yes, today I want you to realize what Thursdays can do for you. Saturdays are the best days,” you think to yourself, deciding to stay in bed a little longer. Or perhaps it’s the joy of sleeping in yet again, indulgent and serene, that prompts you to think, “Ah yes, this is it — Sunday is the highlight of every week.” Maybe you’re a Friday-loving sociopath. It doesn’t matter. You’re wrong. All of those days are fine, but they’re not the best day.

The best day is Thursday.

Thursdays are wily: Unlike most days, there are no expectations for Thursday, and it deftly plays that lack of promise into a wealth of possibility. Thursday is that guy at work who you never talk to, the one that seems nice enough, always shows up on time, doesn’t raise a fuss, and quietly does a quality job every time. Thursday is humble, understated excellence. It will never make you feel ashamed of not “doing enough with your Thursday.” You’re welcome. (Thursday would never say it sarcastically like that, which is why I’m saying it on behalf of Thursday.)

Did you know if you are listening to this show on the day it was published… it is the 119th day of the year 2021? Means there are 246 days left. That’s all. Actually, if my math’s isn’t deceiving me. 30% of the year is gone. If you are listening to this on this date… the date 29th April 2021. But to put it into another perspective … there are 36 Thursdays left. Perhaps Thursdays is where its convenient, and you plan your POWER training day. The tough stuff, the grind… Ha!, ok, the day where you do that type of workout that you actually don’t like. But hey 2021, you said its going to be different. Right, ok.. Thursdays… 36 remaining… that’s really scary isn’t it.

Now, if you think about it. Taking into consideration you want to improve your 10K and have 36 Thursdays and let’s say for some or other valid reason… it’s a good reason, not a excuse… you had to or you where skipping every second power Thursday would mean 18. 18 Thursadys, …. and then if you perhaps don’t feel so well or you lack that willpower… and therefore, you only really train or workout properly and with that I mean, if it says hills repeats you really DO hill repeats If it says 400 meter intervals, you are really giving it your best.
