Netflix might get lucky. According to the news article I found, they are not releasing season 7 of Parks and Rec during the month of October. After this morning’s tempo run, I am on episode 12 of season 6 of Parks and Rec. There are 20 episodes in season 6. That gives me roughly 160 minutes left of iPad entertainment to distract me while I’m on the treadmill. I have an 8 mile long run this weekend, which I hope to do outside. And then I have a 5 mile track workout on Monday and a 5 mile tempo run on Wednesday. That’s roughly 100 minutes. In other words, I better get to do that long run outside.
I started Parks and Rec during the very first run of this training session. I highly recommend doing this if you do a good portion of your workouts inside. Pick a TV show to binge on and ONLY watch it while you are working out. It’ll give you something to look forward to during your workouts. I recommend TV shows over movies, because you never have to worry about running out of screen time. Unless Netflix delays the release of the NEXT SEASON!
One more long run.
One more track workout.
One more tempo run.
And then marathon.
I’ve been on a bit of a spending splurge lately and I need to get it under control. If I put it in the blog, it comes true, right? I mean I did post here first that I was going to run a marathon. Starting this week, I am starting a spending freeze until after Christmas. I cannot buy any personal luxury items until after Christmas. Just groceries and necessary household items. Mr. Neon will probably woop for joy when he reads this!
Alright…lunch break over. Back to children library-ing!
