Every Monday, at the end of the current weeks M.B.E answer, I will post a question for the following week. This way you can cue your post for Monday if you wish. If Monday doesn’t work for you, you can still play along any day of the week that works best. If you want to play along, all you have to do is post the question and your answer on your own blog. Link your post to my blog so that I know you have participated, and in the following weeks post, I will link all the participant blogs from the prior week.
This Weeks Topic: Building Mileage
This Weeks Question: Regardless of the distance you train for, or whether it be road racing or triathlon, training is time-consuming. What are your tricks for fitting all your training into your schedule? How do you balance family, friends, work and training?
I wish I had tricks. I wish it were that easy, really! The truth is, I don’t have any tricks. The truth is, it just happens. I am not sure how I do it, but somehow I manage to fit everything in. And when I can’t, I typically have a mini-meltdown about it and then move on and try to do better. I hate letting people down and I hate letting myself down…but it happens. I try my best to fit everything in, schedule things around other things and make it all work. Most of the time it does; sometimes it doesn’t. I would say the one thing I sacrifice most, and have to work on not sacrificing, is sleeping. I know that sleep is such an important part of training, however I hate to miss out on anything so I always seem to let the hours slip away from sleep time.
I am looking very forward to your “tricks” to help me out!!!
