When Life Gives a Runner Some Critical Decisions

You see, us runners have a REALLY scientific and sensible way of making the important decisions in life. 😉

1) Do you decide your workouts in advance? How far in advance? Are you following a training program at the moment or have a coach?
2) Do you pick out your clothes the day before?
I always lay out my running clothes the night before…I like every extra second of sleep. 😉
3) Do you tend to plan your dinner and meals in advance or just wait to see what you feel like?

  1. Duck duck goose lol….I never really decide in advance except for my long run standing plan for Saturdays. The rest of the time, I know I will be running/working out and from there I decide once I am dressed and either a)starting to run where I determine how I feel and what I am up for b)if in the gym, how I will cross train and if I will choose the treadmill as well. I never really followed a plan as this plan of mine usually works for me.

  2. I usually know what days I’m going to run but I don’t plan my workouts – it works better for me to just go with the flow and how I feel.
    I lay out my workout stuff every single night – partly so I can keep my eyes closed while I get dressed!
    I do plan out meals – sort of a necessity with feeding the growing boys!!!

  3. I especially like the ice cream goose 🙂 When it comes to workouts, clothes, food, life in general, I’m not much of a planner. I have a training schedule, but I follow it loosely and usually decide which workout I’m doing just moments before I do it. Long runs are the exception. Those I plan for. Same with clothes and food. It all depends on my mood. Guess I’m loosey goosey!

    • Power to the loosey goosey runners! 🙂 And it’s actually super smart to always take in a degree of ‘looseness’ with training schedules, allow that room to adjust depending on how the body is feeling. 🙂

  4. No training plan for me at the moment. When I do have a training plan I pretty much follow it to the T, barring injury, so all of my workouts are essentially planned out months in advance. Since I’m not following a training plan right now, I just figure out at the start of each week what I want to do for the week. It works well for me. Same goes for meals- I usually plan them out at the start of the week.

  5. I’m a planner, a list maker, a goal setter — and then I’m a bit relaxed about it all…
    It seems that once I know where I want to go and want to do I can just relax into the doing of it.
    I like to plan my workouts in advance even when I am not following a training plan – it’s my OCD speaking. I also lay out my clothes, put my key in my pocket and make sure my headphones are next to my iPhone so that I can just grab everything and hit the pavement in the morning 🙂
    As for food. Sometimes I like to plan, and other times I like to see what everyone else feels like before I start cooking 🙂
