The Days After

The worst part of racing has to be the days immediately following the race. I am continually racked with intermittent feelings of intense depression and don’t know what to do with myself to get over it. I can’t even go out for a decent run, since my legs are too tired to generate much of a pace and the subsequent exercise induced endorphin flow.

I am sure other athletes experience these feelings. After all of the noise and hoopla surrounding the race is over, you are left with a profound silence as your ordinary work day routine returns. The passion that drove you for so long has to take a temporary backseat, while you return to your daily work grind.

I so much just want to go out with my family and swim, bike, run, hike, climb and play. I wish I could make a living by simply playing with my kids and training all day. I can’t wait for Friday to arrive so I can enjoy my children and the sun without the burden of training and work.
