Where am I with training? Literally nowhere.
I’m currently not training for anything, and I’m unable to run due to a combination of a chesty cough and the sore calf that put me out of the running on marathon day in October.
I really need a new goal to work towards, but nothing currently holds the same thrill as the marathon. Whilst i’ve resigned myself to not running another marathon in the next year or so, I can’t quite get the motivation together to start training for anything else. I really enjoy the structure and discipline involved in marathon training, and so, for now at least, I’ve been allowing myself to wallow, rest and get a teensy bit podgy.
The best piece of advice I ever got about running, specifically taking time off, was to allow yourself to miss it. And I do miss it. So much so, that once I’m over this cough and feeling 100% rested, I’ll be raring to go again!
So there’s that at least.
How are you getting on with your training? Have you been struck down by winter bug?
Lots of love,
