<p>Opie's post for last week inspired me for this week's question. Since he reported his activity totals in terms of total time spent rather than miles or other quantitative units, I started thinking about all the time I spend in exercise-related activity, including pre- and post- workout stuff. Such as driving to and from my running locations, showering (sometimes before <em>and</em> after), digestive issues, etc. Maybe I focus too much on the pragmatic and efficiency aspects of my activities, but I tend to wonder if the 30 minute run is really worth the 2+ hours of pre- and post- "work" that sometimes happens. Or maybe I just have way too much free time to burn... ;)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So this week's question is (thanks BTY!): how do you feel about your bang-for-your-buck of your running vs pre/post maintenance of said running?</p>

<p>Well it threw me off since it now says "X-training" instead of just "weekly"  Since I don't do much besides run, I think I stumbled into the wrong group. I'm a planner though if that qualifies for anything! My plan for this week is just to get through it....eating too much sugar and feeling way too's my own fault I'm such a wreck.</p>

Just post what you got and we'll be happy to see it. :)</p>
I noticed that and wondered then too, that's why I didn't enter anything this week. Okay, I'll stay..maybe it'll prompt me to do some other needed exercises more often!</p>
