The key to being the best that you can be is preplanning. Don’t just go through life by the seat of your pants. Strategize. Book your exercise sessions like they are mandatory meetings. You will be mentally prepared to workout at your scheduled times. Plan your routine based on the amount of time you have available. If you only have 20 minutes, maybe work on speed training. If you have more time, maybe focus on slow and steady distance. When strength training, give muscle groups 72 hours to recover. Make a grocery list before you go food shopping. Stick to the list. Prep your food in advance. Make a couple of meals on Sunday when you have a day off. Ration your snacks for the week in little baggies. Don’t forget to relax. Plan to spend time with family and friends. Meditation and stretching are also great ways to unwind. Use your time efficiently to give you the most benefits to your overall health and well-being.
