So what next?

Over three weeks now since the marathon and I've done pretty much nothing, save for 2/3 runs. Motivation is pretty low and all I want to do is lounge about and eat :( I've probably put on around 7kg since my low a few months back, with about half that being in the last few weeks. I really need to turn that around, so I'm starting to log my weight daily again (111.7kg this morning).

My other goal is to get back into the pool at lunch-times. My gear has been sitting in the car for over a week now, but between being busy at work and the aforementioned motivational issues, I haven't taken a dip.

I might also try and get a 10km or maybe even a half in before the new year, but only if it's extremely convienient. I still haven't officially broken the 10km hour mark (one of my goals at the start of the year), so it'd be nice to get that in the bag to finish off the year.

Good luck! Best thing you can do is definitely get right back to it. You can break that last low!

I was the same after my first marathon, ran very little for a long time. What about getting back on the bike, maybe a triathlon ?

The motivation to run after a marathon is rather low. It normally takes me about 3 weeks at least. And I too gained about 7kgs during marathon training. Rather annoying.
