I have not run since and am enjoying the short break from runs. My plan is to start again this week...
Here are some post marathon tips from Cleveland Clinic:
Don't plan on running during the week after the race. Walking, swimming, or cycling at an easy pace will work well.
When you resume running, start easy — 30 minutes three to four times per week — and increase gradually from there. Most experts will tell you to avoid speed work for a month after a marathon.
Start planning for your next marathon. Review your training; determine what worked well and what presented a problem. Adjust your training schedule accordingly. Experience is the best teacher.
Do not restart your strength training program for 2 weeks following the event.
Allow your body to recover. An extreme athletic event like a marathon is incredibly stressful on the body. The body needs the rest; otherwise, problems such as injuries, fatigue, decreases in performance, and immune suppression can result.
