So often, the time I plan to get in my run is cut short, by over sleeping, trying to answer that last email, or by some little crisis like looking for lost keys … When this stuff happens, I have a tendency to think about the rest of my days schedule to see when I might be able to fit in the time for the run distance I had planned. I do this knowing in reality that this is a busy and complicated life where time is precious and there is no time for a run unless it’s scheduled. Finding time later in the day is a fools errand. Better run whatever distance you can fit in, now.
