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?

New Workout: Yoga for Beginners

I have to admit that I’m extremely bummed out.  I’ve been sick with an annoying cold/sore throat/headache/dry cough/sneezing thing since the middle of last week.  So it really put a damper on any goals I had to work out last week.

On top of that we’re having the coldest winter ever in Philly.  Just when I think the Polar Vortex is over, oh wait, here’s another 2 feet of snow, and let’s keep the temperature in the teens and single digits.  It particularly sucks due to having a job that requires spending an extended amount of time outside.  The highways were in really bad shape on Tuesday afternoon as everyone was heading home…I’m grateful I made it back safe.  This cold weather has no end in sight!

This isn’t even all of the snow we got!

I’m not trying to rant of course…I try to have no regrets and make the most of tough situations, but I hope I’ll be well enough to do something active soon!
