Except for a 1 mile (slow & steady) evening run on Wednesday, I spent this week relaxing, eating whatever I wanted, trying out a new red blend wine, and sleeping in...
It was a glorious week! But that all ends at 11:59pm tonight. As of Monday morning I am back in training mode and it will be full steam ahead to prepare for the remaining 2016 races AND the Miami Marathon at the end of January...
I was telling a friend of mine that I can't remember what I did with my time (and money) before I started running. Then Kai reminded me that all I did was read. And while I know that I've been reading less now, I have these sitting on my night stand waiting for me...
(I'm looking forward to finishing these soon)
As I wrap up my rest week I'm going to focus on reviewing my training and nutrition plan. I went into the NY Marathon under prepared and I don't want that to happen for the Miami Marathon. Additionally, I want to aim for a 05:30:00 finish time for Miami, which means I will be adjusting my running intervals significantly and incorporating more bridgework and inclines into my training runs. That's not easy to do in Florida, but there are a few bridges that I can practice on. Gone are the days when I "just want to finish". With 2 full marathons and 16 half marathons under my belt, I'm now at the point where I want to get better, get stronger, and get "faster".
What do you do during the week after your full marathon?
What's your favorite book/author right now?
What's next on your running/racing calendar?
