Amen. I always think about it as pre-emptive maintainance.

Of course, if you only have one day to implement feature X you implement feature X rather than refactor existing code.

However, the fact that you only have one day indicates larger project scheduling problems - exactly the sort of problems that unit tests, test-driven code and continual refactoring can help with.
