Wednesday rambles

I feel like I've been cruising along in some kind of limbo state these days, still in recovery with a couple races coming up and no real program to follow. I'm just sort of winging in, which doesn't generally make for consistent running. I can't figure out how many KM's I should be logging to keep my fitness level high (half marathon November 2nd! PR BABY!) without overdoing it...I'm a little lost.

I ran 14K Sunday morning with a few people from my old Running Room group, which was nice. We had an absolutely beautiful weekend with sunny skies and temps in the 20's. I also went out for a little 5K with the hubby on Monday. Took yesterday off (shouldn't have, but could not get out the door). I'm planning to run to the gym tonight (scenic route - I'll make it 8K or so) when I'll meet the hubby for some strength training. Hopefully my arms won't feel like they need to be amputated the next day this time.

I've been doing pretty well battling the taper/recovery "bulge" - lost 3 lbs of it so far and a couple to go.

Road Warrior is seeking some virtual running buddies this weekend for his 48 Miles in 48 Hours event...check it out if you have a sec.

You deserve a break after you complete a marathon, so it's okay to go without much of a plan for a bit.

Aahhhhh winging it is good though, from time to time. Nice change from training mode ;-)

Have fun at the gym. I need to get out for my Tempo run.. now.

You wouldn't believe the lack of running I've been doing since the marathon.
I'm winging my next half. Completely.
