This post is a common theme for me following a marathon, what to do next. As has often been the case, I don’t have any immediate goals for the upcoming months. I don’t have any races planned for the rest of the year.
I will likely be able to get back to easy running later in the week after I have sufficiently recovered from Sunday’s marathon. With no races planned I can ease my way back into increasing my mileage and the intensity of my runs.
One thing I do know I will be doing is weekly speed intervals at the indoor track over the winter once again this year. I think that was a big boost to my training for this year’s Ottawa Marathon and will provide me with another good base to likely be ready for one of the races here in May of next year.
With that I guess it looks like I do have a couple of upcoming goals for running already, getting back to running regularly and committing to weekly speed intervals over the winter once again this year.
What are your plans for the rest of the year?
