See, I’m so excited about beginning running again that I can’t stop blogging about it. If only I were spending this time actually running instead of blogging about what I want to do when I start running again. Ha! But alas, it’s late late at night and there is no way I’d feel safe even at the gym let alone running at this hour. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

So, right now I’ve given much thought to my schedule and what I would like to take on as far as getting back into an exercise routine. And, confession: there is a workout video that I absolutely love.* So, I would really like to make that a regular occurrence as well. Given my schedule and knowing my habits, here is what I think will be most effective:

  • Monday: Workout video in AM.
  • Tuesday: Run in AM.
  • Wednesday: Workout video in PM.
  • Thursday: Run in AM.
  • Friday: Workout video in AM.
  • Saturday or Sunday: Long run.

And of course the OCD in me loves the mirroring of the schedule. Except for the long run, of course. Those darn long runs – always messing everything up! Now I just need to get a schedule posted in my tabs section for me to stick by and I’ll be set. (I say that like if it weren’t posted there that I wouldn’t stick to it. Which, now that I think about it, might have some truth to it and not be as funny as I originally thought.)

Nevertheless, a plan is progress. Now to putting it into action!
I’m lacing up my shoes (quite literally, because if I were using it as a cliche it’d be quite cheesy, yes? Yes.).

*More on this later.
