In my previous job, I loved witnessing this type of exchange between my boss and the VP of Sales for the company.
VP-Sales: "We have a policy of not selling this widget to that company".
Boss: "Is that really a policy, or is it more of a guideline?"
That's the kind of conversation that has always stuck with me, another lesson on the importance of language. And this occurred to me today, as I debated whether to run a double, since I'd (a) done a hard workout this morning, and (b) understand the "don't make up mileage you've missed" idea. However, this is a case, as is usually true for running, where such dictums should be treated as guidelines, so I went for it. I think there's a blog post in that.
The first mile, I thought I was crazy, and decided to bear it out and cut it short if needed. But then things started to feel a lot better, plus it was a beautiful day out. Ended up finishing with 6x hill sprints (12-15 seconds or so, just ran telephone pole to telephone pole).
Should set up a good 14 or so on tired legs tomorrow morning.
