Here in Hong Kong the weather is warming up and most of the key races have been run, getting into off-season.
Over the last 6 months I have regularly run 5x a week, total mileage around 50K+, consisting:
Very successful season with 6 races from 10K to HM, and 5 podium places (age group only...) yeah!
I ran my last race 2 weeks ago. Now, with no specific goal I am wondering what I should do! I would like to keep my fitness up and to be honest, running is a habit now - I get a thrill from getting sweaty and having to wash my gear.
What are the key sessions I need to do? What about the hard speed sessions? Do I need to run 5x a week?
Racing season doesn't start till late September, so I guess serious training should start around July. It is hard to run through summer hear, but it is just a matter of aclimatising to the humid (90 degrees) and hot (32 degrees) conditions, and adjusting to what your body tells you.
Great to see what I should do over the next few months.
