Two months ago I found myself overweight, recovering from all sorts of injuries, so I got myself back into running to sort myself out. Things progressed pretty well for 2 or 3 weeks when I was offered a chance to do the GNR - a late entry for a very charitable cause. I said "yes" as I thought the run would provide a focus for my training, and indeed it did. I did everything wrong and ramped the mileages up alot quicker than I liked, however I felt I needed this for confidence. I completed the run yesterday, (a fantastic event by the way), and managed to get round in 2hrs 1 min. Although disappointed at not getting under my target of 2hrs, I raised over 600 quid which is a very nice feeling.
Now to the point of my question - where do I go from here? Do I start training properly? How do I maintain the focus the GNR gave? I almost feel a little deflated now the GNR is over. I would welcome anyones advice/views/experience as it would be a shame to let all the good work go.
