Running a Tight Schedule

by admin 27. June 2013 15:58

Dear Jane,

The weather is getting nicer, and I’d love to take advantage of it. I’m thinking about joining a running club, but I’m afraid that I’ll miss more runs than I’ll make. Am I crazy to even consider this activity?

Dear Still Don’t Have Much Control Over My Time,

By all means, plan to take advantage of the nicer weather, but do not set yourself up for failure. It is always difficult to know if you will be able to be at a certain place at a specific time, especially if it is early evening. On the other hand, most tasks need to be done by morning so you could take a break for a run and get back to work after the run. Don’t give up on the running club, but be honest with yourself about whether it offers you the flexibility you need to fit both work and exercise into the same day.
