After completing the 2013 Dubai Marathon I had no interest in running for a while. All runs seemed a bit mundane. I tried mixing up my running playlist, and running in new locations at different times of the day but nothing really did it for me. I then spiraled into an eight month slump consisting of poutine, pizza and burgers with zero to no exercise. I went from 82kg to about 92kg in that period.
I have for the past few months come back to running and I’m trying to ramp up the miles to get myself back to long distances. I am currently averaging at approximately 37K per week and plan on increasing it to 50K within the next couple of weeks. Considering my speed is plateauing I plan for the coming week to run 5K runs in under 20 min 5 days this week.
