January 12, 2007, Newsletter Issue #257: Overreaching, Overtraining

Tip of the Week

Overreaching symptoms are the first sign you're doing too much exercise or sports training. You may feel fatigued, lose enthusiasm for working out, not perform well, or have lingering colds. Athletes who work out twice a day are especially at risk. If you cut way back on your training, you may recover in 2 or 3 weeks. If you push through, you may reach an chronic overtraining condition, which can take up to a year for full recovery. Check with your coach or doc to help evaluate whether you're doing too much.
