What to Do Between Training Cycles

What to Do Between Training Cycles

Just because you’re not in training doesn’t mean you can’t add some variety to your midweek runs. Although it is wise to focus on easy effort runs, you can also benefit by adding some tempo-effort miles, hill work, and intervals. For instance, if you run three times on weekdays, you could make one a moderate hilly run, one run easier but longer, and the third a shorter, interval-based workout or fartlek. The key is to avoid pushing hard all the time—you want to save that for marathon-training season. If you have some niggling, minor aches, make all three runs easy effort and give yourself a little more time before you add faster running. It all depends on how your recovery goes after the initial race season.
