I was doing 1 hour of cardio every day of the week and I actually fractured both of my feet from the stress I was putting on my body. I had to rest the fractures for 4 - 6 weeks so I was swimming and doing a lot lighter impact cardio and I still was able to continue on my fitness plan. I definitely think you should take it down just a bit to give your body a rest. I learned the hard way that if you push too hard you will get injured and then unable to workout like you want so in a sense it can be good to take it a bit easier every now and then. Hope my advice helps :)

If you've been going hard for a couple weeks, maybe just a week of a lower intensity will help. It'll give your body time to recover, since going so hard takes a big toll on your body.

Try backing off a little on the cardio. Do 45 mins instead of 60 mins and see if it helps. Also check your water intake while you are working out. I always find when I forget to drink, I get more tired faster.

I do 1 hr of cardio Tue., Thurs., and Sat. Today I am completely drained, had a little 30 min nap in PM. Carbs and calorie intake are fine, I think I'm training too hard right now. Don't want to stop cardio, but can't let myself go down from cardio. I'm going to try a new less stressful cardio routine and see if it helps.
Also doing strength training and 30 min's stationary bike on Mon, Wed., and Fri, without any problems.
