Okay, so we've all heard of Post-Partum Depression, but have any of you ever suffered from Post-Marathon Depression? It's not an all-out state of feeling down. I just feel a little blue and have a complete LACK of motivation. Is it from the burnout of training so hard for 4 months and now I no longer have a workout to check off every day?
I mean, I am glad to have my life back because it is a crazy/busy one: 4 boys (make that 5 with the husband), early morning seminary, and a part-time job.
But now that all of that intensity is gone, I'm trying to figure out what to do next.
Should I do a half because I'm sure I could easily PR.
I'm thinking of doing a sprint triathlon, but I would need to take adult swimming lessons first. I'm definitely a 'less effective' swimmer.
