Life Post Marathon



4 days until the Chicago Marathon and I can't help but think about what I am going to do after the marathon.  This will be my second marathon this year, which means I have basically been training since January for Marathons.  Most Saturday mornings have been spent running for a few hours. Most of my Saturday afternoons and Sundays have been spend tired and with sore legs.  As much as I love the feeling of accomplishment walking in the door after a 3 hour run - I think I am to the point where the negative out weighs the position and I am so tired of being hungry all the time.

I have gone back and forth with what I want to do after this marathon. I know that I need to stay active.  I have debated joining a gym, but they are just so expensive and I'm not sure that I will love it.  I could see getting into doing the classes they provide and there is actually a nice gym right next to my new office building, but I think I could get just as good of a workout with the few weights that we have in our small building gym - for free!

I also like having a training plan to follow. It is a good way to keep me accountable and give me something to work for.  I think I may do a training plan for a 10K, because it wouldn't be so time consuming, but would give me a challenge.  I am thinking of doing something like this..

It looks like it would be tough, but wouldn't completely exhaust me.  Or maybe I should do a half marathon training plan?  I don't know.. What I do know is that I am excited for this marathon and am anxious to see how I feel after the 26.2. I'm not going to make a decision and set my sights on anything until after the marathon is over. Can't wait!
