Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Races

When Races go Virtual

When Races go Virtual

This past weekend I was supposed to be running The Chicago Marathon. But that marathon, like many others, the in person event was cancelled and it became a virtual marathon. I decided not to run it virtually as it’s hard enough for me to run a marathon with thousands of people cheering me on, I know that running it independently would be hard.

While I have no virtual long races to train for, I’ve got a few 5k races that I’ll be doing virtually. So, for the time being, I’m keeping my runs on the shorter side. I know my body appreciates the lower mileage and I know I appreciate getting more sleep on the weekends since I’m not doing 20 mile long runs on weekends!

How have you made adjustments to your training for virtual races?

Keep on running!
