I recently began studying a Bachelor of Business (Marketing) online at University which has taken a quite a bit of my free time. With a full time job, a family and now studying for a degree running has been hard to fit in.
I have managed to keep up with my studies, my job is going well and I make sure I fit in enough time with the family. In the past four weeks I have only managed to fit in two runs per week and only short runs at that. While my runs have been short I have decided that my runs need to have a purpose and have been making sure these runs are done with adequate intensity.
Today i managed to get out on the beach and trails near my house for a hard fast blast over the hills. i really enjoyed the scenery and pushing myself up and down a couple of steep inclines. It was a warm day for our winter season here, it was good to put the shorts and shirt on rather than my winter running clothes and run in the light of the day rather then the early morning darkness. My Gladsoles with no toe socks on to keep my feet warm was good too. Great to free the feet.
With no races coming up in the near future and a pretty busy schedule i am going to need to stay on top of my studies, work and family time and make time for consistent runs.
