I’m training for the 3 Day For The Cure and have 5 weeks to go. Wow! Time flies! I’m excited to be selected by Energizer as their Cleveland Keep Going Blogger. They are providing the participation fee and I’m sharing my experiences preparing for, training, for an walk in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day For The Cure.
Since starting to train for this event, I’ve been incredibly diligent and have followed the training schedule in the walker’s handbook to a “t.” I even had my weeks mixed up at one point and walked a big mileage weekend before I was supposed to. I was proud that I did it, but because I kind of jumped into it it was tough.
The nice thing is because of that big mileage weekend, all of the other walks seem so short! If I’m supposed to walk for an hour or even two, it almost seems like no big deal.
However, even though an hour or two of walking flies by for me now in all honesty these past couple of days, I’ve hit a bit of a training slump. I am still very active, but have been finding it tough to fit it all in.
It’s all a matter of doing what I can when it gets busy. I’ve cut down a few walks here and there, but I’m still walking. Today is actually only my second day unofficial day off since I started training all thanks to them minor blog blow-up I had this morning.
After this week some outside things will settle down and I will really focus on training. In the meantime, I think it’s all about being flexible and adaptable and fitting the walking in as often as I can.
What do you think? When your daily life becomes busy how do you fit in exercise? Do you let it take a back seat for awhile or do you approach it in another way?
