But here’s what I accomplished in those 26.2 hours in May…
- knitting – 15 hrs, 4 mins
- sleeping – 7 hrs, 7 mins (the most I’ve slept in recent marathon history 🙂 I knit for an extra hour past the 26.2 to make it up to myself)
- other (blogging, eating, taking pictures,etc) – 5 hrs, 1 mins
- Pick projects that are well on their way – I wasted time making major design decisions during my marathon time.
- Don’t underestimate the power of the group! A poke from a friend’s knitting needle can help you stay awake.
- Have snacks ready to go so you won’t wander aimlessly through your pantry during those I NEED FOOD times.
- If you think you are doing something well, just look around at how others are doing things – there’s almost always a better way! Fellow marathoner, Marcy in her Marcaritaville blog has a much better method of posting her progress, so I will follow her lead next month!!!
- If you do the math you will see that pictures are worth MORE than 1000 words: Time to snap, upload, format & post < Time spent trying to write 1000 words. Show me the PIX!!
