After event running

  • Posted:
    There seems to be a lot of info on training leading upto an event but not a great deal dealing with how to train after. I recently trained up and completed a half marathon and for my first one I managed to achieve a time of 1hr 31 which I was extremely pleased with especially as I was only aiming to achieve a round 1hr 40 - 1hr 45, the downside is since taking part in that race I dont seem to be able to find my 5K speed that I used to have and as a result I have had to pretty much start my speed program from scratch again. Is this normal??
    For info: I am 45 years young and been running consistantly for about 18 months. Normal distances are 5 & 10K
