One thing that is rarely talked about in running circles is what happens after running a race.
After spending months training for a particular race, the race is over and the post race blues are quick to set in.
So how do you deal with them?
Cures for the Post Race Blues
I’ll be diving into each of these cures more in the video, but here is the quick version:
- Take a Break: A few days (or more) off from running can be good for the body and the mind. Stay active, just don’t run.
- Volunteer: Find a race in your area and volunteer for it. Guaranteed you’ll be much more appreciative of every volunteer you ever see at another race again.
- Reassess Your Goals: After a big race is a great time to come up with new goals or come up with a new strategy for success for the future.
- Sign Up for Another Race: Nothing beats the post race blues like having a new race to look forward to!
So there you have it guys.
Post race blues really are a thing, and they can get you down if you’re not careful.
