Started running again this past week. I ran a 3 times for a total of 24 miles. I kept the running at a leisurely pace since I could feel I still wasn’t fully recovered from the marathon. I plan continue the easy pace running this week before I begin any speed work. I just want to ensure I’m fully recovered from the marathon since I have a history of injury when beginning another training cycle too early.
As I mentioned in my last post, over the next 12 months I plan to focus on improving my half marathon time. I have registered for 5 half marathons which are somewhat equally spaced apart. It will be interesting to see if tailoring my training plan to focus on the half marathon will improve my times. Logically, one would think so, but we’ll see.
