Many runners find themselves at a complete loss when the marathon is over - 𝙬𝙚𝙡𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙚 “𝙥𝙤𝙨𝙩-𝙢𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙣 𝙗𝙡𝙪𝙚𝙨.”
Post-marathon blues may not be a clinical diagnosis, but it’s real. To put it into context, when you accomplish any goal that you’ve been targeting for months, it’s only normal that a letdown of some sort is inevitable when it’s over. The past four or five months of your life have been dedicated to achieving this goal, and marathon training has, in large part, dictated your lifestyle.
Nutrition, sleep patterns, and even socializing has revolved around training. Basically, you’ve been living, breathing, and eating marathon training for months, so now that it’s over, is it really any wonder you feel lost?
𝘽𝙪𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙥𝙤𝙨𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙨 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨. You now have the freedom to sleep in, eat, drink, and socialize as you please. No more long runs and no more early wake up calls, which can be both a relief and terrifying all at the same time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I think the real 𝙠𝙚𝙮 𝙩𝙤 𝙖𝙫𝙤𝙞𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜 the postrace blues is to find a way to incorporate what you learned from marathon training into your daily life. Try applying the structure, organization, focus, and goal setting to every day tasks. If you can do this, you’ll find 𝙡𝙞𝙛𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙧𝙪𝙣𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙜 can be just as exciting and fulfilling whether marathon training or not.
