This year has been my first in tri and all year I have trained hard and loved it, I started in June doing the full lakes man (ironman distance), an Olympic distance, a long fell race, helvellyn Tri and finally ended yesterday with the London marathon.
After each event I had a few days off to recover then got back into it for the next event.
Now I don’t have any events until April next year I feel the next 3 weeks or so would be a good chance to have a spell off and relax but I’m struggling. I just obsess with when I can train again, eating cleanly and the freedom is daunting as I will have no structure anymore after 10 months of grind.
Is this normal? What are the ways to overcome this? I was thinking of trying some other activities or hobbies I used to do to try and keep busy but with something else. 3 weeks of just ‘chilling’ would be torture I think
