There was your first workout. It was brilliant. The universe unfolded and blinded you with beautiful light. Then you got tired. Then it got real. You started gasping for breath – an awful, desperate struggle for air – but you kept going. And your body became a stranger. You thought you knew every kind of hurt, but this was different. Your legs turned to jelly and you thought, “What on earth is going on … ” Before that moment, you didn’t know your legs could feel that way.

Then you’ll get other workouts. That freezing cold workout, that workout you did when you were really angry, that one when you wore some silly costume or jorts, or that one in the brand new outfit, the hungover workout, the workout you did even though you had screaming kids at home or left work priorities dangling, the I need to go to the bathroom workout, the undeserved easy 45 minute chipper, the run in the rain, the Slogger that was not pretty not fun and a metaphor for everything in life that’s not fair …

That first “real” workout is the only one you never get to fully experience again. That was your alpha workout. However it went down, it’s history now. You get no second shot at it. What you do get is a 2nd workout, a one month workout, an anniversary workout, and all the other workouts that led you to the workout you’re doing today.

Cherish that first workout, that one that led you here. And know that plenty more are coming your way.
