It’s been a week now after the Chicago half marathon, and the training began a few days after in preparation for the Northville Solstice 10K on June 23rd. Training almost seems odd now. I’m mean, after all that intense training for the half is over the 10k training runs are much shorter, it almost feels like I’m cheating on myself. I guess I could continue to do longer training runs, but I know my body needs some recovery time before the next major event which is the T-Rex Triathlon in August. Please don’t get me wrong, a 10k is a very challenging event and takes a lot of effort and training. But to me a 10k now feels different, just like a 5k feels after you run your first 10k. I totally get it now why they have fulls, 50 & 100’s and even longer events. Running is so addictive and the quest for the next personal challenge…is just crazy?
