One of the largest misconceptions about working from home is the belief that you are free to run your errands and get things done whenever you want. While there is some flexibility when working from home, if you want to get your job done, you have to hold to some sort of schedule. I try to run my errands during what I would consider a lunch hour and then get back to doing my thing as if it’s a normal job.
I did some food shopping yesterday during my lunch hour because today I have to pick up my number for the 10k race which is tomorrow morning.
I am excited about this 10k race tomorrow! I don’t run a lot of races so when a race comes up on my calendar, it’s a treat. My last race was back in October for the Great South Bay Half Marathon (recap here if you are interested).
I ran this same 10k last year (recap here) and although it’s going to be fairly chilly, I am grateful that it doesn’t look like it will be snowing like it did last year. It’s a local race, about 7 minutes or so from my house, which is an added bonus. I am ignoring that there’s a chance for rain in the morning.
When Laura put together my half marathon training plan, I let her know about this 10k so that she could build it into the schedule. She was all excited about this 10k actually because she said that it is a perfect tune up race before my half in four weeks. And here I thought it was just a great 10k race to run since it’s so close to my house and they give out a really nice long sleeve shirt 🙂
In addition to sharing recipes today, I came across a few great fitness related posts for you too – I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
