RaceTeam - You did it!
RaceTeam Christchurch complete!
After 10 weeks of preparation you took this challenge head on, worked through each session, each week, overcame mental challenges as well as the physical challenge.
Race day was a stunner, the conditions were perfect, and after you warmed up after a frosty start you got into your groove - and those views!
You have worked together towards your own goals and should be really proud of yourselves, so many of you surprised yourselves with what you achieved and we had some awesome runs and lots of happy runners, we hope you enjoyed your RaceTeam experience ;o)
Rest, Recover, Reset
Often after a goal is reached like this we come down from the "post race high" and can feel a little flat. This is normal!
Make sure you give yourself a week of recovery but don't leave it too long after that to get back into a running routine. While you are out there enjoying some nice easy runs, think about what your next goal might be.
Reflect on the last 10 weeks - what did you do well? What would you improve on next time? Most importantly - be proud of yourself. You have dedicated the last 10 weeks to this, you have given so much time and energy into training and so enjoy what you have achieved - we are very very proud of every single one of you.
If you would like to keep running with Extra Mile Runners, there are a couple of options:
What to do after RaceTeam christchurch?
You recover. Take the week following the race to rest and recover. If you want to go for a couple of easy 30min jogs from the Thursday onwards, just keep it light.
