About 17 weeks ago, I started yet another clinic with my running wife Sam and we were charged with leading just under 100 people on their quest to finish their first, second, or umpteenth half marathon.
With the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon now over, so too is our clinic.
And now comes the empty and lost feelings.
Training sucks up a lot of time and energy. You devote 3-5 days a week, albeit only an hour of two on those days, to pounding the pavement with a crew that you grow fairly close to and then *whammo* it’s all over when you cross a finish line.
So… uh, now what?
Well, these are some of the activities I’m going to attempt to combat my post-race/clinic blues:
- Spend time with friends… NOT running
- Take more classes at the gym
- Spend more time on my couch
- WALK around the city
- Count the days until the next clinic on November 17th!
What about you? What do you do after training is over and the race is completed?
