I have posted this on the jogging forum.
I am having difficulty going back on the road in the past week. Is this joggers blues of sorts during the lockdown?
What I usually do?
I go out for nearly two hours on the road, 10k with lot of start and stops and for 3 times a week. I have been at it for the past few years and it was one constant in my life.
Working from home and living alone, I don't have to meet anyone for any reason. Even though I am living in one of the largest cities on the continent. Everything happens over email and Skype.
Maybe the depression has finally caught up with me and I am having difficulty going back on the road. I haven't run last week at all.
Has anyone experienced this? It is happening to me this week out of nowhere. I think I might just be having an anxiety attack because of new responsibilities and new ways of working.
I can't afford not to take my mind off things, by not going for a jog. I don't have any other entertainment.
I was hoping to get the driving licence and a vehicle this summer but there are no driving tests and it's been suspended with no end point in sight. I can't just jump on a car and get lost in the midlands somewhere.
Perhaps I could start reading again or start watching BBC iPlayer. Or maybe I just need more human interaction or perhaps find a friend? This is a lot difficult when one is older - and I can't find a way out even now at 33.
Sorry about the wall of text.
