Overtraining and its benefits!

I am now officially overtrained. I have persistent soreness, tiredness, lack of motivation and am generally depressed. Please refer to this entry in Wikipedia for more info on how I feel http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overtraining#Other_symptoms.

There are some benefits to overtraining though. I get a good nights sleep, everyone feels sorry for me and I can eat what I want.

So Im off running for a few days and just enjoying it. I am also changing my schedule to a once every other day rather than every day. I think that would help. Another revelation is that even if I feel like a child my body is 32 years old and there is some wear and tear. Its ability to recover quickly is hampered apparently from the moment it hit 30.

So its time to slow down on the training and maybe up the intensity.

Until next time.
