I have a 3 week break from track and field (now 2 and a half), and I have been trying to practice everyday in order to run a mile in under 5 minutes (right now I am at 5 minutes and 27 seconds). I have successfully been able to practice everyday whenever that means running 6 miles, doing some core work, lifting weights, or even doing squats. However, there are many distractions that come up every once in a while. The video game consoles, TV, and computer (I only use the computer for work) often get in the way. While I do want to play video games, watch TV, and do work on the computer, my priority at that moment is to do my workout. The distractions are usually more inviting, but distractions will stop us from reaching our goals which for me is to run the mile in under 5 minutes. I do everything else (the video games, TV, and computer work) after my workout so that I don’t have to be frustrated at around 8 p.m. that I missed my workout. There is always time to get distracted but there isn’t always time to do what you want to accomplish. Do the distractions after you do what you accomplish.
