Recently I decided to add weights and fartlek running into my workout. I caught myself, before I made the same mistake as I usually do. I first decided I would do weights every Monday and Wednesday and fartlek runs every Tuesday and Thursday. In the past, when I did this, this would last about one week and then miss one and I would forget the entire plan.
This time, I am doing things with more thought. I am only going to require each of these once a week to do when my schedule dictates. No particular day. I can choose when I want. A benefit of this is that I will not burn myself out by putting too much pressure to complete a certain type of workout. I will reevaluate my plan in August or September and make an adjustment.
Tell me about your strategy.
