The calendar may be leading up to Christmas, when most people take a break or vacation. For me the calendar is also leading up to the Rock ‘n’ Roll DC Half Marathon. So while I may be on break from work, my training days keep popping up on my calendar.
I’ve found that one of the most successful ways for me to ensure getting my workout in is to have a calendar alert go off at the beginning of the day. Luckily all of my apple products make that an easy task, so I have a separate Fitness based calendar exclusively for my various healthy exploits.
Today while out on a training run I was listening to the Mickey Miles Podcast (seriously this podcast rocks even if you don’t plan to run disney) and it happened to be an episode where they had Jeff Galloway on to answer runner questions.
Well in addition to the questions, which he is awesome at answering, he also had a little plug for a new race series the Jeff Galloway 13.1 and the Barb’s 3.1. While the inaugural races just took place in Atlanta they are offering an opportunity to be an inaugural runner by participating in virtual version of the races.
I was intrigued and definitely checked out the website. I’m thinking I will probably do the virtual 5k, since that is an easy training run for me, and maybe drawn to the 13.1 because really its an inaugural race, and Jeff Galloway, and why not! I’ve never done a virtual race before so this will be an adventure for me.
Keep it focused & fierce!
Have you ever participated in a virtual race? What running podcasts do you listen to?
