The best workouts meet the following criteria:

  • You feel great afterward.
  • You can't believe you just ran them.
  • You never want to run them again.
  • Near the end, there are either tears or raindrops in your eyes.
  • There are at least three moments you want to scream.
  • Something once living, now dead, is under your shoe. Bonus points if it's not an insect.

Sadly, I don't think anyone gets enough workouts like this. So when they happen, they should be treasured.
