As far as work, I have been working part time and blogging this year, because the new full time opportunity I was planning to take in January fell through. I did Consulting and traveled for work for many years. I always found that mornings worked best for me and I learned that some exercise is better than no exercise. Runners can be “Type A” and want to follow a plan to a letter and I am no exception. That said, I used to think if I didn’t have time to do the “full” workout that I could not fulfill the plan, so I did nothing.
I have learned a few things about balance since I started working almost twenty years ago. Namely, that something is better than nothing and no one is perfect. To stay in shape, I incorporated some very short workouts when needed and sometimes did a little before work and a little after. I also convinced many colleagues to run with me or to have walking meetings just to get something in. Running can be a common bond and I developed some great professional working relationships by running with clients and colleagues on business trips.
