Plan Ahead

in All Posts

Morning, friends!


Since we discussed setting and achieving New Year’s Resolutions (“goals” if you prefer) yesterday, I thought I’d share a trick that I’m going to try out this month.


When I started to train for the Spinx Runfest Marathon (I ran it in 4:22 on October 30), I decided that I didn’t want to suffer from the same mental burnout that plagued me while training for the Disney Marathon.  So, instead of following a training plan like I did for my other 31 races, I decided to simply pre-plan my long runs and wing the rest.  I felt like I had a thorough enough understanding of marathon training so I “knew” what I needed to do to achieve my goal of a sub 4:35 marathon.


It was very freeing to operate without a training plan, but since I’ve fallen into a bit of a workout motivation slump AND it’s the New Year, I thought I’d bring back the training plan.


I’m not officially entering Half Marathon training mode for another two weeks (I’m running the National Half in Washington DC at the end of March), but plotting out my workouts a week in advance makes me feel like they’re a commitment that I can’t just blow off!


Let’s see – I made a delicious breakfast today (that I photographed in frosty grass for fun)!


The star of the show was this leftover Chinese brown rice.  Here’s the recipe for the Leftover Chinese Brown Rice Breakfast Bowl.



I subbed out craisins for coconut.  Mmmm!


In other news…


Doesn’t James look like Dobby from Harry Potter?



Want to adopt James’ twin? I found him on Pet Finder!


Do you pre-plan workouts to help stay on track? How far in advance?  Do you prefer to fly by the seat of your [bicycle] shorts?



  • Michelle January 4, 2011, 9:13 am

    I would like to look at his twin but petfinder is dangerous for me. 🙂 I was “just looking” the last time and ended up with my doggie! 🙂

  • Allison @ Happy Tales January 4, 2011, 9:16 am

    How exactly did you create your training plan on the computer? Did you use exel, and is it hard to do?! I am going to be running my first full sometime this spring, and I think a computer-based training plan would be key to helping me stay on track!

    • Caitlin January 4, 2011, 9:20 am

      I use Google Documents spreadsheets, which is essentially Excel. It’s pretty easy!

      • Erin January 4, 2011, 9:55 am

        To say I LOVE Google Docs would be such an understatement. I have seriously started using iGoogle & Google Docs to organize my life, I love it! 🙂

        • Rachel January 4, 2011, 10:12 am

          Another Google docs fan.

          I use it to track my food intake, workouts, and it is a LIFESAVER when it comes to wedding planning.

          I like that I can access it no matter what computer I am using.

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Graduate January 4, 2011, 9:19 am

    I usually don’t preplan workouts but I think I’m going to step it up this year and run a half marathon (my last semester in college and only taking 12.5 hours so I actually have some time on my hands!!). I will be looking at various training plans and finding one that I feel is doable. 🙂

    And omg, you’re right. He DOES look like Dobby!

  • Ashley January 4, 2011, 9:30 am

    I have been reading your blog for a few months now and have yet to comment… but I love your blog! Thanks for all the great motivational and inpirational posts!

    I think you inspired me to start preplanning my workouts to see how I like it… and you are totally right that James does look like Dobby! Haha!

  • Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin January 4, 2011, 9:30 am

    I am running the National Half in March too, and I’m doing a Hal Higdon’s Intermediate training plan, so training actually started yesterday because its 12 weeks! I do try to plan out workouts or at least when I’ll do them whether I’m training for something or not (before work, after work, etc) so that I can make sure to get the number of workouts in that I need/want to during the week.

  • Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table January 4, 2011, 9:31 am

    I totally pre-plan – otherwise I’ll get busy and miss that appointment with myself.

    I love that you color-code and then total your weekly mileage. Right now I just block time on my Google calendar.

  • Brittany January 4, 2011, 9:32 am

    Hey caitlin ! after Reading ur resolutions yesterday I wanted to ask if you would be writing specific posts on how youre getting your body baby ready. I’d love to read some posts about what steps you are taking ! Thanks

    • Caitlin January 4, 2011, 9:37 am

      Hi Brittany! I’ll probably be writing that post in six months or so… but one day 🙂 I dont feel educated enough to write it yet.

  • Britt @ Runnerbelle January 4, 2011, 9:33 am

    I do best when I pre-plan my workouts. I’m in Boston Marathon training mode so I have all my runs planned out through April 18th. I also aim to go to kettlebell 2-3 days per week. So far it has worked fairly well for me. Although I do wish I had time for some yoga, unfortunately time is at a premium due to working full time and starting up a new business!

  • Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman January 4, 2011, 9:34 am

    Ha ha…he does look like Dobby. Is he as loyal? 🙂

  • Michele @ Healthy Cultivations January 4, 2011, 9:34 am

    I’ve planned workouts up to eight months in advance, but it doesn’t work out. I’m having much more success by setting weekly goals.

    The first pansy photo in this post is simply beautiful.

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) January 4, 2011, 9:34 am

    I think this is a great idea. I don’t run, but I do plan the day before, what I want to do for my workout. I think that definitely motivates me and then I am not floundering when it comes time to get my butt moving! Have a great day Caitlin!

  • Claire January 4, 2011, 9:35 am

    I ran a marathon last spring, after which I literally had NO motivation to run…for months! It was sad, because I’ve always identified myself as a runner. Eventually, I forced myself to sign up for another marathon and then put together a specific day-by-day training plan. It might seem counter-intuitive, but having a day-by-day plan was what eventually brought back my motivation! Accomplishing my goal each day was really satisfying – and I loved that I was working towards one major goal in the future. I’m hopeful that you’ll find your plan to be similarly inspiring!

  • Amalfi Girl (EatRunHaveFun.blogspot) January 4, 2011, 9:38 am

    Total Dobby. Good luck with your training!

  • Kacy January 4, 2011, 9:38 am

    I get a sick amount of joy out of entering all my training runs, body pump and yoga classes into my gmail calendar. It’s like my crack.

  • Erin @ Big Girl Feats January 4, 2011, 9:40 am

    I torture myself looking at Petfinder everyday in preparation for getting a dog this year. James is so flipping cute!

    I tell myself I have to do 3-5 workouts per week and give myself the option to do what I feel like doing that day – if I had planned to run but my body feels like yoga, I’ll do yoga. I like being flexible for what my body is telling me but still sticking to a plan that will make me feel good.

  • Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday January 4, 2011, 9:42 am

    Striking resemblance!

    I find I’m more likely to follow through with a training plan if I write it down.

  • allison @ livingoneday January 4, 2011, 9:43 am

    im doing a sprint tri the first week of august (my first one!!!!!! and my first race ever. im terrified), so even though my formal training wont start until may, i created a workout schedule for myself, some are set (like runs, swims) and some are open (like spinning, yoga, etc). it forces me to commit while still allowing for boredom-induced options.

  • Rach January 4, 2011, 9:44 am

    Haha! Yes! James DOES look like Doby! That’s hilarious!

  • Amy B @ Second City Randomness January 4, 2011, 9:45 am

    I don’t necessarily plan out pre-training plans, but I do already have my training plan for my next half posted in my apartment to remind me that it’s coming and that I should probably act accordingly. It’s like a little kick in the butt when I need it… 🙂

  • jassy January 4, 2011, 9:45 am

    i like dhoby the free elf a lot 🙂

  • grocery goddess jen January 4, 2011, 9:46 am

    YES I do like to write down and preplan my workouts! It makes me feel good to write them out.

    James=Dobby, too funny!

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg January 4, 2011, 9:48 am

    Plotting out a training plan definitely helps me when I’m training for a race– otherwise, I tend to blow off runs, especially the shorter ones!

  • Katy (The Singing Runner) January 4, 2011, 9:51 am

    Haha. James does look like Dobby! Too cute! 🙂

    I like to preplan my workouts…. then again, I’ve been in training mode since October and don’t know anything different. However, when I got injured a month ago and had to take 2 weeks off, I had to definitely change my training plan. After my half- marathon this Saturday, I’m taking a week easy and then going back into training for Gasparilla. 😀 So I will be writing down and preplanning my workouts.

  • Allie January 4, 2011, 9:52 am

    James DOES look like Dobby! Hahah.. that made my day!!!

  • Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun January 4, 2011, 9:55 am

    I love making plans for workouts and fitness related goals. I never get sick of them. Heck, I’ve already started planning out workouts that I can’t do for another month or two at least. Yea…I like it that much.

  • AllieNic @ Frisky Lemon January 4, 2011, 9:55 am

    I usually plan my workouts a day in advance so that I can mentally prepare for them…I’m not one to think much further ahead than that. If I were training for something I might…I usually follow the same general routine every week, but I change up the exercises.

  • Melissa @ TryingToHeal January 4, 2011, 9:59 am

    I preplan long runs, but that’s it. my schedule is too crazy to be able to set times when i’ll run during the week; so I just wing it! i find it more relaxing that way! that and i believe that most training plans for me have just too much running per week and i get injured, therefore i make my own!

  • Whitney January 4, 2011, 10:00 am

    I pre- plan my workouts weekly. I do not write them down but I know in my head what workouts I want to do for the week!

  • Gabby (Quest for Delicious) January 4, 2011, 10:03 am

    Hahaha he totally does look like dobby. That cracks me up.

    These days I never plan workouts, but I have never been training for anything, so I guess it works for me. I have to say, though, that I miss high school when sports practices were a great workout and all I had to do was listen to my coaches. They planned the workout for me! (:

  • Alina @ Duty Free Foodie January 4, 2011, 10:03 am

    I sometimes plan out my workouts in advance (if I am training for something or working on a specific aspect of fitness.

    Most of the time, though, I basically know what yoga classes / gym classes are available to me in a given time slot (lunch or evening), and I choose whether I want to do something on my own or one those options really close to my actual workout time based on how I feel.

  • Ella January 4, 2011, 10:09 am

    This is my first time training for a race and I’m using the Hal Higdon plan so I have an idea of what my workouts will look like for the next month!

    But usually on Sunday I sit down and think it through (i.e well I have class here here and here, sororoity stuff this day, I really like this ballet class on thursday) and plan it all through.

  • Ella January 4, 2011, 10:09 am

  • salah@myhealthiestlifestyle January 4, 2011, 10:10 am

    hahahaha that’s so funny! Your dog does kind of look like Dobby! that breakfast looks great!

  • Rachel January 4, 2011, 10:10 am

    Oh man I totally call my dog Dobby all the time when he puts his ears like that!

    As far as workouts go, I generally fly by the seat of my pants and let myself choose each day what I’m in the mood for.

    However, that works well if I’m trying to lose weight and my main goal is to burn calories. It failed miserably after I finished losing 40 lbs and started running last year. It wound up with me never improving my speed OR distance because I never had a training plan to improve.

    Then I got in the mindset of “oh hey, if you don’t want to work out today, that’s cool. Whenever you are ready just pick it back up again”

    And like three months went by! Whoopsie. I have been getting back on track this week and have already done two solid workouts. But man, I am SORE! (Oh and 15 lbs heavier. Damnit!)

  • Paige (Running Around Normal) January 4, 2011, 10:11 am

    Keeping a training plan definitely keeps me motivated, but I kind of like the freedom and leniency of not having one right now. I’m taking it easy on my body (for injury purposes) and it’s really kind of nice!

  • Lauren January 4, 2011, 10:14 am

    Hahaha yes, Dobby is one of my favorite characters, and they do look alike. I usually don’t follow a training plan, but I probably will my spring half-marathon to stay motivated.

  • Caitlin January 4, 2011, 10:18 am

    Gorgeous shots this morning! I’m loving seeing the green!!

  • bakingnbooks January 4, 2011, 10:20 am

    So Dobby!

    Do you devise your own training plan or take it from somewhere?

    • Caitlin January 4, 2011, 10:22 am

      I look at a bunch of different plans and use them to craft one that is uniquely me!

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) January 4, 2011, 10:22 am

    They have the same ears! Too cute 🙂

  • Julia @ Brides Up North January 4, 2011, 10:27 am

    HA HA HA hilarious – he DOES look like Dobby!

  • Amanda (Eating Up) January 4, 2011, 10:31 am

    Haha I see the resemblance. James is WAY cuter!

  • Gracie January 4, 2011, 10:35 am

    You know, I’m a planner in every area of my life *except* for workouts. Weird, right?? I’m sure it would be different if I were training for something, but I wing every single workout I do. I do a lot of strength training, so the only “planning” I do is keeping a mental note of what moves I did on what day so I can rest those muscles appropriately.

    But like I said, if I were training for something, I think that planning ahead would be my lifesaver. Since you’ve ran so many races, though, I think you’ve reached a point where you have a good enough idea of what training entails, so winging it could totally work!

  • R Chandra January 4, 2011, 10:35 am

    i am running my first marathon on may 1st (new jersey state!) & this week starts my training. i’m following a hal higdon plan, but definitely allowing flexibility. i’ll say at the beginning of the week, “i have to do this run and this run and this run,” and then figure the best days to fit them in. it being my first 26.2 miles, i feel like i need that structure of something telling me what to run every week ! 🙂

  • Maddie (Healthy Maddie) January 4, 2011, 10:39 am

    James does look like Dobby! haha. I don’t really preplan my workouts but if I do it’s usually the day before.

  • Natalia - a side of simple January 4, 2011, 10:48 am

    I don’t usually “lol” in comments… but I seriously did “lol” at the picture of James/Dobby. So true! Now I think this breakfast is the PERFECT excuse to order Chinese food…right? 🙂

  • Kara January 4, 2011, 10:52 am

    James does look like Dobby, that’s funny! One time I found my dog’s twin on Petfinder and I totally wanted to adopt him, but my husband vetoed the idea 🙁

    I’m doing a half at the end of this month and I haven’t been using any training plan. I can’t find one that allows for days when the baby is too fussy for me to workout 🙂 We’ll see how it works out for when I run my half!

  • Definediana January 4, 2011, 10:53 am

    I haven’t been planning my workouts but now that my work schedule is way more hectic I really need to make a plan. Plus I liketo see results in my fitness level and for that I need some type of workout plan I can track.

    I think I will be working on the C25K within the next couple of weeks. I’m excited to start running.

  • Ann @ Day by Day January 4, 2011, 10:54 am

    I’m a Type 1 diabetic so I plan workouts and meals together. It works the best for me to work out about an hour or an hour and a half after a meal in order to keep my blood sugar level from going low. I usually plan a day in advance!

    Haha, James has Dobby ears for sure! I loved Dobby- he would always know when to come save Harry!

  • Megan @ AVeryMegGirl January 4, 2011, 10:57 am

    I am such a planner and plan all my workouts.. I am just not really hard on myself if I fall off a little 🙂

  • Stephanie January 4, 2011, 11:01 am

    I need to get back to planning. I don’t have a race planned *yet* until April so I either need to get motivated and sign up for a frigid run or set some other goal for myself.

    James DOES look like Dobby!

  • Camille January 4, 2011, 11:04 am

    I was actually just thinking the same thing about training for my upcoming races. I have a tendency to get injured, so I had just decided only to follow the long runs schedule so I don’t feel obligated to run when it hurts.
    Thanks for the motivation!

  • Amber from Girl with the Red Hair January 4, 2011, 11:19 am

    HAHAHA! Omg YES! He does look like Dobby!

    My brothers dog is James twin too. Only she’s smaller and a girl dog. When I first started reading your blog my first thought was “OMG James looks exactly like Lexie!”

  • Halley (Blunder Construction) January 4, 2011, 11:19 am

    Why can’t I just enjoy my holiday guilt until the sun comes back out in April? It’s so tough to maintain exercise plans in New England in the winter, have to be very motivated to schedule classes and workouts in the home. It’s so much easier to throw sneakers on and head out the door to get a run in.

  • Joanna@ Drizzle of Sunshine January 4, 2011, 11:21 am

    I love that your pup has a Doppelganger!

    As of now, I’m just working on conditioning my lungs. I’m working up to be a runner so to train I’m trying the walk/run thing and running more and more each week. I don’t know if that’s right, but it works for me and I’m running longer than ever 🙂

  • Katy January 4, 2011, 11:24 am

    Hey Caitlin where do you find those cute multi colored ceramic spoons you use sometimes?

    • Caitlin January 4, 2011, 1:03 pm

      Crate and Barrel 🙂

  • Liz @ Tip Top Shape January 4, 2011, 11:27 am

    haha, he really does look like Dobby!

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat January 4, 2011, 11:27 am

    Love the brekkie photo this morning! I work out with a trainer (for strength workouts) 2-3x per week, but I plan my other individual workouts at the beginning of the week so I don’t have to worry about it when I get to the gym. If i did, I’d probably let myself slack off way too much. It takes a bit of time and prep as you know, but the results are worth it!

  • Kelly January 4, 2011, 11:27 am

    Bahahaha omg he does! I’m in pre-race train mode right now also, have to get the mileage up before the training officially starts.

  • Val @ Balancing Val January 4, 2011, 11:33 am

    I used to plan workouts. But it started to work against me. I began to feel like I was forced to do it and when I decided not to I felt so guilty that I just ended up giving up!!

    I understand planning workouts for a very specific goal such as a marathon or something but for general fitness, I like to keep a very loose outline and tell myself that its OK if I dont work out. Im busy enough with work and culinary school and the added pressure wouldnt help!

  • Rachel @ Grateful Girl Goes Gluten Free January 4, 2011, 11:41 am

    I don’t prefer pre-planned work outs, but I just signed up for my FIRST half marathon! So I’m going to stick to a plan so I feel ready when the marathon comes.

    And I really need to make that brown rice breakfast bowl. It reminds me so much of rice pudding YUM!

  • Cindy Robinson January 4, 2011, 11:42 am

    LMBO at the James & Dobby resemblence!!

  • Lisa January 4, 2011, 11:45 am

    My workouts are pretty much ingrained in my daily schedule now. I don’t really think about it too much. There are 2 days a week I’d prefer to be my swim days just because I know those days it’s not crowded.

  • Sara @ OurDogBuffy January 4, 2011, 11:52 am

    Love the puppy you found on Petfinder!

  • Katherine: Unemployed January 4, 2011, 12:14 pm

    I totally fly by the seat of my pants. I love the idea of rice for breakfast; it looks like oats

  • Brittany (A Healthy Slice of Life) January 4, 2011, 12:16 pm

    omh DOBBY! I LOVE DOBBY! And therefore, I love James 🙂

  • Emily January 4, 2011, 12:30 pm

    I love that James looks like Dobby with those pointy ears, so cute 🙂 I am starting a new fitness plan for the new year and am trying to keep track of it on my computer. Do you use Excel or Google to fitness plan? I am really trying to stay more organized this year and really mark progress; sometimes you need to see your accomplishments out in front of you to truly realize them.

    • Caitlin January 4, 2011, 12:56 pm

      I use Google docs because then you can access the file from any computer!

  • Ellen@FirednFabulous January 4, 2011, 12:30 pm

    You have me hooked on Chinese brown rice! Whenever I don’t feel like cooking, but need a healthy option, I get it with steamed veggies and chicken. It’s lasts for 3 meals, too…well, usually…depending on how hungry I am 🙂

  • Clare @ Fitting It All In January 4, 2011, 12:32 pm

    hahaha love that James/Dobby comparison.

    For my last half marathon I only used a schedule for long runs like you did for your previous Marathon. But now that I’m in FULL marathon training, I’m being more strict about week day runs just to make sure I do it right! It’s not always fun to know that I *have* to run a certain distance, but hopefully I won’t regret it!

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing January 4, 2011, 12:32 pm

    Oh WOW he looks SO much like Dobby!!!! Crazy!

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey January 4, 2011, 12:40 pm

    Yum to that breakfast!!!

  • Meghan@travelwinedine January 4, 2011, 12:55 pm

    I only plan out my long runs for marathon training/ The rest falls into place in the form of spinning workouts, hill runs, and speed workouts. Not being super planned has actually helped me relax and run happier.

  • Katherine @ Left Coast Contessa January 4, 2011, 1:04 pm

    Yay for pre planning. I’m running a half in June and I already planned all my workouts through then. I operate better with a plan.

  • Gill (snaxandthecity) January 4, 2011, 1:44 pm

    oh your pup is cute as! so is dobby lol.
    i usually pre-plan my workouts…i do mostly gym work so i like to have a plan that i follow for 3 days a week, then on the other 4 days i kind of wing it….for example this morning i was feeling a bit fluey so it was yoga instead of a interval workout. some planning + listening to my body seems to work for me!

  • Ashley @ Thefitacademic January 4, 2011, 1:55 pm

    I plan out workouts for the week, but I often switch around the days. As long as all the workouts are complete, I don’t worry about if it as accomplished on a Monday or Wednesday (for example).I find that when I’m flexible I’m more likely to stick to my plans

  • Jess@atasteofconfidence January 4, 2011, 1:58 pm

    Haha I love Dobby!!

  • Mabelle @ Dance, Love, Dine January 4, 2011, 2:19 pm

    Ive actually found that printing out a blank calendar and just filling it out as I work out during the week works best for me. But all in all, it is a great feeling of accomplishment to have a visual showing how much cardio or weight training you got done and how it “accumulates” throught the months.
    PS: love the coconut idea for the chinese brown rice 😀

  • Nerdy Runner January 4, 2011, 3:38 pm

    I’ve never NOT had a training plan for a big race. I’m too scared that I won’t get in enough training. Did you have any kind of structure at all?

    By the way, I find it hilarious that you compared James to Dobby, the hubs and I do the same thing with out dog, Andi (a spoiled rotten Rat Terrier). If you fold her ears just right, she has a striking resemblance to him – very similar to James actually (just different coloring).

    • Caitlin January 4, 2011, 3:40 pm

      Just the long runs and weekly goals of 25 – 30 miles – no other real structure.

  • Michelle @ a whole lot of life January 4, 2011, 3:43 pm

    I don’t usually plan my workouts except for when I was training for a 1/2 marathon. As part of my NYR’s I’m starting to plan my workouts because I think my “wing it” approach has not led me to see the results I am hoping to achieve. I love the new year!

  • Becca January 4, 2011, 3:46 pm

    I am not training for anything but staying in shape and being healthy. At the beginning of the week, I come up with a general plan that’s something like this:

    Monday- gym
    Tuesday- swim
    Wednesday- gym
    Thursday- gym
    Friday- swim
    Saturday- gym or off
    Sunday- gym or off

    At the gym, I usually spend 45 minutes doing some mix of the elliptical, arc trainer, recumbent bike, and upright bike, so I don’t really worry about high impact activities like running. Having a framework for a plan helps me stay on track, while also allowing myself some flexibility for the days that something unexpected comes up. It works quite well!

  • Catie January 4, 2011, 3:50 pm

    I used to just go for it. But I was getting frustrated I wasn’t getting the results I wanted. I am already a very oranized and planned out person, so I decided I would come up with a plan. It has worked wonders!

  • Ali January 4, 2011, 3:59 pm

    I loved your attitude while training for your second marathon. I thought it was very refreshing and I can see why you did so well. I have been thinking about implementing a similar lack of training plan while training for my second marathon.

  • Janene @ One Run at a Time January 4, 2011, 4:33 pm

    OMG, you mean I could have a James of my very own? EEK! If I lived in the Carolinas, you better believe I’d be snatching that puppy up in 2 seconds flat. And yes, he IS Dobby!!

    RE training plans: The first time I started training for a 1/2, I made a super rigid training plan that piled on the miles way too fast for me, and I ended up with pretty seriously strained tendons and an 8 week “vacation” from running. This time around, I combined at least 3 different plans and extended them over 22 weeks instead of 16, and so far so good! Also, instead of planning ahead of time which runs I’ll do one which days of the week, I just have them all written down, so I can sit down and plan them around my weekly commitments. I know you can do that on other programs, too, but it just FEELS much more flexible, so I’m gonna roll with it!

    Thanks for so much awesome advice, keep rockin’!

    The only thing I plan is when I’m going to workout. I like to just go to the gym and do what I feel like when I get there. It keeps things interesting. 😉

    I’m running my first half-marathon this April, and I spent far too much time on Friday figuring out a training plan. After perusing the internet for sample plans for hours, I finally just decided to make my own–I’m on track so far!

    Hey! I was looking back at your past posts, and I really like the idea of creating a schedule for yourself. I have done this in the past, and currently am making schedules for school and life in general. How do you find the motivation or drive to actually follow the schedule and not get lazy?
