Beat the blues

“You might have a real sense of anti-climax. You can overcome this by choosing a completely new challenge. Try a duathlon, an adventure race or take up a new activity like tennis or yoga to help both your body and mind recover from the rigours of a marathon,” says running coach Bud Baldaro.

Follow Bud’s top advice – head to our sister site triathletesworld.co.uk to take on a multisport challenge or get stuck into our Yoga for Runners blog.

Gained a new pb by 34 minutes, even though i missed out on a four hour race, i was only 17 mins away. I just need to find that miracle solution to overcome the mental barrier, hitting the wall at 23 miles, resorting to a run walk for a short period.

 Had a proper run last night, six gentle miles, legs feeling fine. Frimley 10k a sunday week.

Did you run manchester or London. The official line is 1 day for 1 mile recovery, but if you run on a regular basis then take a week out go for a gentle run see how the legs and body feel. And just re introduce slightly longer runs over the next two or three weeks.

You may feel fine Fergy but the damage goes quite deep. Gently does it just light jogging and plenty of stretching, slowly building back to strong and fully healed legs. I did Paris a fortnight ago and am now Starting to feel ready for some efforts.

I like the cut of your job or at least your thought process but sorry to say, I honestly think you would have fully sold me on the idea had you been able to back up your premis with a substantial bit more solid facts.
