One of the reasons I read blogs is to learn.
One of the best blogs for learning is Elizabeth's Waterstraat's blog.
You may want to add it to your blog roll right now. It's that good.
A few days ago she posted a great article on overtraining, that made me pause and think. Ah, I love that. I went back and read the comments people left and they made me pause, and freeze, and really think.
It is easy to think of overtraining in terms of feeling low energy, burned out, and not being able to hit your times during workout. Most of us have been there in one form or another. It's part of finding your limits. We tend to think of stage 3 of overtraining, one that involves suppressed hormones, depression, feeling sick all the time as reserved for elites or those who maybe run a marathon every weekend. But real overtraining is more common than we think. It is dangerous. I can see it easily happening to me and to you. So read on, maybe post it on your blog, and lets spread the word and make sure that we don't let it happen to us!
