24 Hours in a Day

June 28th, 2010

Lately I’m finding that even though the long summer days are officially here and it doesn’t get dark until around 10, I’m still finding it difficult to get everything done that I’d like to accomplish in a day. I think, if I’d stuck to my original schedule of doing things that I probably wouldn’t have any problems, but what I’ve noticed is that now that the days are longer, I’ve added to my ‘to do’ lists and I’ve ended up getting in bed far later than I would have normally done.

So, this leaves me with the decision to evaluate things and make a few modifications. The training for the 5k race is early mornings, especially with the warm weather being what it is. I usually spend the mornings doing other things in the house so that I’ll be done with household things before it’s time for me to work in the afternoons. Since I am one of those people who refuse to stand in the kitchen when it’s warm, I’ve found that I’m getting dinner done in the morning so that it can be easily reheated in the evening when it’s time for dinner. That has also knocked my regular routine out of whack, and it leaves me feeling a little off kilter on some days.

In the next few days, I’ll spend some time thinking about the changes I need to make and adjust my schedule accordingly. Even though there are more hours of daylight- I’ve found that no matter how you slice it- there are still only 24 hours in a day.

    One of the things learned by me when flying is the need for “little adjustments” so life is like that. I is just a matter of striking the correct balance. I have added an hour walk in the morning even though it is winter and the first few times, that threw me too. We do adjust.

    You are right my friend, we do. It just takes a little time- I think probably because I’m a creature of habit.

    I like reading about your 5k training. I think it is great. Just enjoy the time you spend outdoors. When it is hot I either hit the treadmill or go for a run in the early morning hours…

    Train for comfort and look forward to the routine. I run for time (30 -60 minutes)and heartrate and take a different route almost every time I run.

    Cheers buddy!!!

    Love,
