When things got crazy-busy last week, I decided I’d do two things: 1. squeeze in shorter runs whenever/wherever possible and be grateful for those few miles because they do add up and are usually a much-needed break between activities and obligations. 2. Play weekend warrior and try to get as many quality runs in as I can on the weekends or days I have off or a larger windows of time. Last weeks mileage is the perfect record of how that worked out!
I read a great quote yesterday. “If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you’ll find an excuse”.
This will be my mantra this week as I tackle what looks to be another crazy one!
