Back to Running


It’s been a little over a week since I ran the Philadelphia Marathon. I had planned to get out for an easier run a couple of days earlier but had to wait until yesterday to get out for my first run since the marathon. I’m sure the extra couple days of rest did not hurt at all.

Now I am slowly going to ease back into my routine. I was tempted to want to run another race this month just for something to do but options are limited here at this time of year. Instead I am going to try and go on a bit of a streak and run every day in December. It will give me something to aim for as 2015 comes to an end.

As previously mentioned on here, I will be running the Ottawa Marathon again in May. In order to get ready for that I will get back to a structured training routine in mid to late January. That will include at least two 10 km races and a half-marathon leading up to May.

Until I get back to a structured routine I will probably run based on how I feel. I’ll throw in some tempo runs when I feel like it and probably get in a couple workouts at the indoor track before then. However, I’m going to try and not obsess over my mileage or pace until the time comes to start another marathon training cycle.

What do you have planned for the rest of 2015 and the start of 2016?
