Life After the Half Marathon: What’s Next?

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | fitness , injury prevention , running

Hey there!  It’s the start of another week…why can’t the weekends last a little bit longer?  Hopefully you were able to make the most of it.

Now that the Rock and Roll Philly Half Marathon is over, I am trying to figure out what the heck to do with my life when it comes to running and fitness!  Training for the race brought so much structure to my fitness life and kept me consistent.  I’m actually sad that it’s all over.   Now that I don’t have a training plan, what do I do to keep in running shape?

Rock and Roll Philly Half Marathon Recap

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | race recap

Hey, hey!  Several days have passed, and I’ve finally processed everything from last Sunday’s half marathon, and I can’t wait to tell you ALL about it.  As you may know, for the past few months I’ve dedicated a majority of my blogging to chronicling my training for the Rock and Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon.  It was a LOT of work, but overall, I had a great training experience.  I made the investment to hire a Running Coach, followed the plan, and let the chips fall where they may!

The many faces of half marathon training

I’m grateful to say that training has gone really well.  While I had one week where my mileage was short, I did all of my speedwork, plenty of long runs, and my fueling routine is on lock!  I’m really proud of myself and for the first time in ages, I’m injury-free.  I guess what I’m saying is, I’m ready to race!

Saturday morning is the 5K, and 24 hours later is the half marathon.  This is my first time running two races in the same weekend.  It’s going to be insane, but in my excitement/nervousness, I know I have to stay in control, and keep my goals at the forefront.  So here they are!
