O is for Overtraining

Overtraining  occurs when runners run too fast or too hard and stress their bodies more than the bodies can handle. Most symptoms of overtraining can look like many other things when on their own, but if you have a selection you may want to slow down. Symptoms can be: moodiness, tiredness, prolonged injuries, elevated heart rate, loss of libido, loss of appetite, lack of sleep and lack of motivation.

Ever suffered from overtraining? Wondered if you currently are? Tish serves us some must needed tips to avoid a burnout.infographic borrowed from: Fit Bottomed Girls


  1. Geez I have most of those symptoms on a daily basis w/o working out. :(

  2. Wow-they sound like symptoms from a person who doesn't exercise.
