Trying to decide

I'm trying to decide what to do and I'm having trouble.  I'm getting back into the workout groove and I'm feeling really, really good.  But now that school has started again I can see potential problems that I might run into and cause me to stop my workouts.  It is very tempting to say there is only 7 weeks of school left and I can workout after it ends.  But 7 weeks is a long time and I'm feeling so good now I don't want to stop working out. 

Spring is a popular time for all sorts of training programs and many of them are starting in the next couple of weeks.  Last time I got so fit I had joined  a training program and that got me started on really good fitness.  So I was thinking of doing the same thing now.  Join a training program to push me in my training.  So I'm faced with a couple of options. 
  • There is a 4 week boot camp at 6 am M-W-F.  The problem with this is it runs from 6-7 and I have to be to work at 7:30.  It's held in parks where I could shower and dress so it really could be worked out. 
  • There is a 12-week fitness program that meets on Mon, Weds, and Saturday.  This is a varied program where they do all kinds of different things.  It meets at 5:30 pm close to my work. 
  • There is also a train running program.  It meets Mon, Weds, and Saturdays at 5:30 pm.  
So I'm really leaning towards the trail running program the problem is the following:
  • It meets on Mon and Weds nights from 5:30 to 7 pm near where I work.  
  • I take classes on Tues nights from 5 -8.  
  • Mon, Tues, and Weds nights I won't get home until after 8 for 6 weeks.  
  • On July 6 my summer classes start and they are Tues and Thurs. - but I don't have to attend these classes.
  • For 4 weeks I won't get home until 8 on Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs.  
  • But school where I teach ends at the beginning of June so my days will be free.
I need to decide by tomorrow as the orientation meeting is tomorrow and trail running starts on Monday.  I'm leaning towards doing it only because it will push me and force me to stick to a workout schedule until it becomes a solid habit again.
