Day 2-Find and Make Time to Run

Time, time, time. We all have it, we all use it and we all want more of it.

The reality is that we are all spinning around on the same globe, with a 24 hour day. The trick is dedicating a miniscule part of those 24 units to running and writing.

How far do you want or need to run today? Or how many minutes do you want to run today? I’m planning on 50 to 60 minutes, but that’s just me. You need to decide what your goal is. You can reasonably achieve your goal of running an ultramarathon by running less than 45 minutes. But what if you don’t have 45 minutes?

Remember we all have 1,440 minutes each  and every day.

The trick is allotting time, you may have to scour your schedule,  look in the deepest corners.

Here are some of the those deep corners:

TV Watching
Newspaper or Magazine Reading
Lunch break
Internet Surfing
House Cleaning
Video Games

The list goes on and on. If you don’t have time to run or write, choose one of these times eaters, and borrow 45 minutes from it, or take 10 minutes from each one of them. You will not regret it.

You will never hit the pillow at night and think, “I sure wish I would have spent more time watching TV or  playing video games today, but you will lay and think, “Why didn’t I just take the 30 minutes to write today?”

If you’ve just found this blog, it works best to start at Day 1.

Call for replies, "How do you find time to train for ultras?"

Please let me know if you have started your ultra training plan.
