Yes, the sign indicating Beer was bigger than Start/Finish. Priorities.After the Snakebite, I took off 5 days with no workouts, just some light yoga and stretching. I started running on Saturday (day 6 post 50k) with a slow 9 miler. This week I started working out more regularly, alternating days with no real plan. To be honest, I was so busy at work, I didn't have time to workout everyday and it's probably for the best. Having a transition week back into regular workouts was probably smart and not something I would have been as good at if I wasn't so busy.
Tuesday: 4 miles easy (8:51/mile pace)
Wednesday: Speedwork 10x20 second hill sprints
Sunday: 5 miles easy (8:54/mile pace)
Chickamauga Marathon. I still plan on taking it easy (pace-wise) for the next week but upping my mileage as my body allows (i.e. I probably won't hit all of my planned distances). Goals for the race will depend on how my body responds to training and how comfortable I feel by race day. It's such a pretty race, I'm not worried about enjoying it as a training race.
My very flexible marathon plan.How quickly do you ease back into running after a big event?
