Now that you've completed your target event, it's time to hold on to your fitness.
Once you've completed your target event and fully recovered, it's important to maintain your hard-earned fitness.
Unless you have another target race in 12-16 weeks, there is no need to train too hard right now. But that doesn't mean stopping altogether.
At this stage, it's far better to do a handful of quality workouts each week but do them consistently for several months. This will set you up nicely for when you are ready to re-commence a race-focused training plan.
For this reason, I have designed a range of Fitness Maintenance plans (see links below). Ranging from 4 to 24 weeks, they are designed to maintain your fitness during periods when you have no races planned.
Or, if you do have another race planned already, you could try one of my race-focused training plans.
