In a training funk.
Lots of people say this happens to them after races, and the best thing to do is to put another race out there.
I’ve done that, and I’m 19 weeks away. Plenty of time to train and improve, especially give then base I currently have. I actually don’t think it’s completing a race that does this to me. I think it’s the taper and recovery weeks.
I usually get a mid-schedule slump, which I resolved by simply not having a schedule. But I think the post-race slump for me comes from the loss of momentum during taper and recovery.
I have to get my mo back.
