Post-Marathon Running

24 Oct

Oh guys, I don’t know what’s happened to me since I finished the marathon nearly ONE MONTH ago.

So what’s been happening? Not a lot to be frank. I’ve been on two runs in the last three weeks which is a pretty dismal effort but on the plus side I’ve signed myself up for two more races!! My “over-eager overachiever” husband wanted to run in the Lausanne Marathon taking place this Sunday so instead of going along with him as a spectator (I’m not ready to run another marathon just yet!) I decided to sign-up for the 10km run. My first 10km race – a lot of “firsts” for me this year! I’m obviously not taking it very seriously because let’s be honest, two runs in the last three weeks is not sufficient training to run a good time but I’m hoping to hash it out in about 55 minutes. And then I’ve signed myself up for the Escalade in December. The, almost, biggest event of the year in Geneva. I wrote a few lines on the Escalade and the associated race around the Geneva Old Town last year which you can read about here and here.

Now that the marathon training is all over I’m getting back into the spinning classes and pilates classes and next week I’m going to try my hand at BodyPump (a Les Mills weights class). I’m aiming to build up more “all over” body conditioning and strength so that next time I start training for a marathon I won’t get injured!! My physio also gave me a heap of strengthening exercises to do which I haven’t been very consistent in doing yet so I need to pull my socks up on that one.

Hmm.. having just said all that it seems I need to find my mojo and get back on the fitness bandwagon before I go too far the other way.
