    Default depressed after exercising?

    Anyone else experience this. It's not because I over do it, but for some reason i never feel good or happy after i excercise instead I tend to just feel blue and down and like life isn't worth anything.and I know jogging is suppose to realease endorphins, but that doesn't happen for me, for some reason.

    I generally have the opposite feeling. Are you exercising on an empty stomach? That sounds a bit like it could be low blood sugar (which makes me feel very unmotivated and depressed).

    nope I always make sure I have food in my stomach I usually eat protein and carbs, my fav thing to eat before working out is a peanutbutter sandwhich.

    I get this too, though that may be for obvious reasons.

    I kinda feel the same. After exercising I get the blues. Maybe it's because I spent such a long time in an S task... :P

    Do you mean your mood is worse than usual after exercise, or that you just don't notice any change?

    I don't feel any worse that usual after exercising, but I don't get that mood lift people talk about either. It's happened in the past, and it happened a few times when I got back to exercising earlier this year, but it doesn't seem to happen anymore. I wish I knew what made the difference.

    I feel depressed when only thinking about excercising (and then not doing it), does that count?
