I’ve meant to work out both days this week so far, but life has gotten in the way! How can I plan better?!
I truly wanted to go for a run. Monday evening I was sucked into some work until late, and it was raining when I left. Tuesday I had planned on going to a spin class but found out on Monday (!) about a volunteer meeting I had forgotten to add to my calendar!
I’d like to try – and have been meaning to work on – getting up earlier to go for a run before work. But that hasn’t worked out either. I’ve got a case of the “shoulds, want tos,” but Can’t!
What’s a girl to do? At least for tomorrow, I am making it a hard stop to leave work at 5 PM because I have my first interval workout with the CES Winter Warriors! Go warriors!
I’ve also been considering a marathon next year. I’ve been thinking about this for a few months now. Now I’m looking to make a decision: Should I go for a spring (May) marathon and get the training done with before summer? Or should I shoot for a fall marathon and train/think/plan all year?
- Spring would probably be a somewhat local/Midwest marathon. Wisconsin or Illinois both have a few marathons in late April or May.
- I’m not sure what marathon I’d do for fall. I could sign up for the New York City marathon lottery, and find out in March. I probably wouldn’t do Chicago because a friend is getting married on that weekend. I haven’t thought about what other marathons I might be able to do in the fall.
What do you think? How have you made decisions around large commitments? Training for a marathon is an intense time, physical & mental commitment, and I want to be as thoughtful as possible!
