Every Wednesday, the Deb from Deb Runs will be providing a word about which to blog. Kind of like a nice little blog prompt. Posts can be fitness or health related, but don’t have to be, so really anyone can play along. Just be sure to link up with InLinkz on Deb’s main post, and share the love by reading and commenting on other’s participant’s posts.
This week’s word is ORGANIZE.
In other words, if you want to run a 5K, you plan your runs, sign up for a race and then you make it happen.
The same goes for running a half or full marathon.
Some of us have lives that are easier to organize than others. But if it’s your dream, you prioritize things so that you achieve it.
That being said, I’m not one for official plans. But I do sign up for races way in advance and I do plan out my runs each week. Someday I will even plan out strength training and speed work.
Without a plan for your running, you have less of a chance at achieving the results that you’d like.
I realized this early on when I tried to find quickly what I wanted to wear to go out for a run or a race.
Now thanks to my stepsons moving out, I’ve taken over their dressers and organized my stuff.
Stepson #1’s room –
- drawer for socks
- drawer for running skirts
- drawer for long sleeve tops
- drawer for capris & tights
Stepson #2’s room –
- drawer for tanks
- drawer for short sleeve tops
- closet for hats, gloves and jackets
I keep my shoes in my own closet.
Tip: in all of the drawers, I roll my stuff so I see everything.
Happy Running! Are you organized? Any tips to share?
