I’m a visual person. I like lists, I like calendars, I like being able to cross-off items, and I love when things are color-coded. I’ve made a few training schedules in the past, both on paper and electronically, and I’ve never really stuck to them. So, I decided I needed to do something different while training for my upcoming 70.3 in October.
I decided to go big! Literally…
I decided to paint a chalkboard on one of the walls by my side door, the door I use on a day-to-day basis, and put a massive training calendar on it. It’s color-coded, it’s organized, I can check things off, it’s a Type A Triathlete’s dream!
So far I love it, and I feel like it’s large and central presence will be a big motivator for me. And I guess if it doesn’t work, I’ll have room to make a very long grocery list 🤣
