I finished my first marathon and while I'm super happy about it, I'm also kind of depressed now. I started training for it in September or so and basically every week I had a long run scheduled and a lot of my time was spent thinking about my runs, planning my routes, wondering when I'd have time to get them in. Weekends were planned around my runs...
And up until the race - my time was measured by pre-Marathon and post-Marathon.
Now I do have another half schedule in March and at this point, I'm not sure if/when I'll do another full. I'm hoping to do better on my next half and hope to do a couple more as the year goes on, but nothing like what I had to go through for the full.
It's kind of this big build up and once it's done - I don't know what to do. Just wondering if it's all just post-race high and I'm still just coming down from it. I definitely did not feel this way after running my first half.
