Yesterday's release of WADA's findings is certainly interesting, and we're waiting on the CAS's ruling on Russia's track and field ban, but this will be about the track and field schedule. I found the entire schedule for the Olympics, and I wrote down the races I'll be watching, or recording. Certainly putting the marathons on TV during my morning runs will be motivating, but I won't be running for that length. I"ll have to bolt back to my apartment during a commercial break.
Aug 12: women's 10k, men's 800m round 1, women's 1500m round 1
Aug 13: women's steeplechase round 1, men's 10k, men's 800m round 2
Aug 14: women's marathon, women's 1500m round 2
Aug 15: men's steeplechase round 1, women's steeplechase final, men's 800m final
Aug 16: women's 5k round 1, women's 1500m final
Aug 17: women's 800m round 1, men's steeplechase final
Aug 18: women's 800m round 2
Aug 19: women's 5k final

That should keep me busy. I also love watching sports like fencing and archery because the Olympics is the only time for me to see them on TV.
Tuesdays on the Run with Patty, Erika, and Marcia.
