"Maintenance" training program for runners

 

Hello,

 

 

I've been a runner for awhile but took an embarrassingly long break before finally coming back to the fold.  I'm currently training for a half marathon in November.  My training for this race has been the following:

 

 

Mon-Off

 

 

Tues-Speed workout

 

 

Wed--Off

 

 

Thurs--Part distance, part speed workout

 

 

Friday--Off

 

 

Sat--Mid distance

 

 

Sun--Long distance

 

 

I started out doing about 20 miles a week and by the end of the program I'll be doing a little over 30 miles a week.  The training I've been doing has been a ton of fun and has gotten me in great shape.  After the half marathon I'd like to continue with the training but not necessarily for a specific race.  It would be fun to run a 5 or 10K here or there but I don't necessarily need to do the steady mileage progression I'm currently doing in order to peak for a specific race.  My question is, after the half marathon, should just start over the current program I'm doing at week 1or is there a more general training program that someone would recommend?

 

 

Thanks in advance for your help.
