sigh just want to know from you guys how do u keep yourself motivated after a disasterous event liek a marathon.
I juz did a marathon this morning. Its was bad real bad!! Was ill and down with food poisoning two days ago and was given medical leave. In the end, my marathon time was like 4.30.
I was initially aiming for 3.30 and hv been consistently training for it.
Im defintely devastated by my performance. Currently, i am in a very low morale and i kick myself.
During the 1st half of the marathon everything was falling in place until i started to vommit and i just couldnt digest all the PowerGel which i was consuming.
I hv let down my coach as i did not manage to accomplish what i set for myself.
I am feeling bad abt this mornings performance. It doesnt help if this is the 3rd marathon i hv taken part and for this marathon i put in the most effort
*in terms of training etc* . Yet its the slowest i hv done!!!
Would like to know how you guys handle the aftermath of such situation . That is if u hv been in my position when during the event which u hv been training so hard for and everything just didn not fall in place.
Cos of this incident i m hving 2nd thoughts abt ever being able to do a Half Ironman or Ironman even....
