Training for a half marathon is not the only thing that requires planning. There’s a lot of things that require planning, but today it’s German. For years I have been teaching myself on and off with varying degrees of ferocity. This evening I pulled out all the resources I have at my fingertips – apps, books, flashcards – and listed them all. Then I promptly left them all piled in the middle of the rug, pulled my exercise bike out and searched YouTube until I found a playlist of Disney songs in German.
Half an hour later and at least I’ve done my exercise for the day.
