Mama Marathoner’s Singing the Post Marathon Blues! by Kathy .. Healthy Living Professional Posted Wed 14 Jan 2009 5:09pm So today is Wednesday, three days post-race. I can’t help it: I’m singing the post-marathon blues! What is it? I remember this from last time! I’m feeling tired but more than that-sad in a way. I know in part it is my leg issue. I tried to run this morning to no avail, so I need to take some time off. I fast walked instead. I did three m ... Read on »

Post-Marathon Recovery by {lifeasa}RunningMom Posted Mon 24 Sep 2012 5:32pm First, I got to say I do not do things the normal way. Last Sunday I ran my second marathon and I pushed myself hard. If I were to follow a textbook I may have taken days off and done nothing. But that is not what I did so today I am going to outline what I have done the past week not only to keep you in the loop but to provide firm documentation ... Read on »

Sunday, the day after the marathon I ... Read on »
Kiss Post-Marathon Blues Goodbye by AbbyNYC Posted Wed 16 Nov 2011 4:24pm I ran my first marathon in New York City. It was an amazing experience that I’ll always remember and cherish.

Post-Marathon Running by Katherine @ Neon Blonde Runner Posted Tue 22 May 2012 8:00am I went for my second post-marathon run last night!

Post-Marathon Blues by marathonmom Posted Fri 27 Apr 2012 12:56pm 11 days since Boston and I am just feeling blah! I think it is a combination of post-marathon blues, you know that feeling that you have after working so hard for something and then it is done, starting a new job and the mental exhaustion of that, getting over being sick, a recent injury and lack of good eating for the past couple weeks. I have b ... Read on »
Post Marathon Goals and Mac n Cheese by marathonmom Posted Fri 12 Oct 2012 8:46am Just like taper madness is a real thing so is post-marathon letdown. You work so hard for so long, it takes priority many days and consumes your thoughts until race day is done, it feels as if you have lost a huge part of who you are: now what? Enjoy the time, relax, refocus and set new goals. What do you do with your extra time when not tr ... Read on »
