Does heavy exercise cause temporary depression?

Posted by girlnterrupted78 on September 13, 2007, at 11:53:44

I've noticed a few times, that when I begin an exercise regime, usually mild to heavy, I feel very depressed following my exercise sessions.

I've been exercising on and off during the last 15 years, and I usually push myself hard--but not to the point of being overworked. Simply hard enough for it to be worth the effort.

So yesterday I did around an hour of mild to heavy cardio work, and today I woke up very depressed and started crying about things that I hadn't cried about in the last few weeks. I could barely wake up, and I slept additional hours and didn't even bother to run my errands because of how bad I felt emotionally.

Is this a normal reaction? If anyone knows, I'd appreciate your input.

Thank you,
