One thing that I have decided on is to implement a routine. While it might sound very basic, but without a routine you can easily get off track or start missing workouts. Plus, with a routine, I can help myself and my family know my defined schedule. While I might not always keep to it, it is a good goal to have. As the wise Bruce Denton (Once a Runner) used to say, Live like a clock.
Do you have a Routine?
What are the pitfalls you have found and how do you avoid them?
Where is the best place for flexibility in your schedule?
This plan allows for me to keep track of what I am doing, where I am going to be, and provides the structure I need. Too many mornings (or evenings.
