Here are ten tips to keep you on track and still stay motivated between races:
1. Reduce weekly mileages to about 30 to 40 perfect of your long distance training weeks.
2. Decrease running days by 1 to 3 days from your pre-marathon schedule.
8. Try a yoga class and focus on your stretching and flexibility.
In addition to keeping motivated and staying in shape between marathons, it is also important to build in rest time into your routine. Your body needs to recover from one race before gearing up for the next, or you may leave yourself open to overuse injuries, sprains and strains, fractures and torn ligaments.
