Nothing directly related to testing today. Instead, a few of the folks on the test team and I went out last Sunday and ran the Kirkland (Washington) Half Marathon. It was just about perfect weather for it – cool in the shade, a hint of warm in the sun. If it would not have been for all the hills it would have even been fun!
I used OneNote to help train for the run. At first, I downloaded the marathon template for OneNote and figured that just dividing each recommendation in half would make since I was running in a half marathon. But we decided a little too late to enter the run to make this possible. Instead, I found a half marathon training schedule at www.runnersworld.com and pasted it into a OneNote page. Then I just checked off each day I completed the recommended training. (I did not do all the recommended training as you will see). Here’s what it looked like:
It worked pretty well. I like the feeling of completion I got when I checked off a box. It is surprising how much motivation that little check box provided.
And here’s the obligatory photo of us:
Glen, Nani, Ricky and John.
The best part of all this? Getting done and enjoying the post race lattes – this is a Seattle area event, after all 🙂
