A typical run for me, if I’m not training for a race and just want to get a run done, is usually 6 kilometres. Short and sweet. But on bad days, I’m thinking I should maybe add maybe a half kilometre, and you might want to augment your workout a little on those days, too, based on these findings:
Researchers from Penn State have found that your satisfaction with life is directly impacted by your daily physical activity. Their research, published in Health Psychology, found that just a little more exercise can translate into big positive changes with your feelings of life satisfaction.
(and if a lil bit more exercise fails for any reason, I can usually count on my manicures to make me smile).
