Post Ironman Blues
Just looking for any advice for dealing with post race blues.
I had a bad day at the office doing the Outlaw Ironman in July, I knew I would struggle as missed I 6 weeks training due to illness in May but I completed the bike and was well into the run, feeling great and sooooo happy, I knew I could finish but unfortunately it all went down hill from 10 miles into the run, I ended up withdrawing at the 13 mile mark and ended up in the medical tent. It took me a few days to get my head together to realise its only a race, I'm still healthy and get it all into perspective.
However since then, 5 weeks now, I have no motivation, nothing at all, I have sat and eaten and drank and just can not force myself to exercise in any way. I did complete the ironman in 2015 had a month off but was itching to train after a couple of weeks, this year zero!!
Just seeing if any one has experience getting through this, don't want to say depression but I certainly feel blue, it hurt to not finish, and pulling out was a lot harder than carrying on but I knew I was in a bad way so why can't I move on from it?
