What's a reasonable running program after a race?
So when I first started running I just did what I could. 2-3 miles occasionally 4. Right now I'm training for a half marathon. I'm not sure what my plans are after the marathon, probably to start working on my speed doing a few 10ks and another half at some point. In between I'd like a healthy challenging running program that won't burn me out or overtrain me, but be enough to justify my maintenance cals. Right now I'm thinking 3-5 miles 3xs a week and 5-10 miles 1x a week with 2 days of strength training. So that's about 15-20 miles/week. Obviously I have to figure this out on my own, but I'm wondering what others exerience with this is.
