operation love: crash and burnout

Friday, August 10, 2012

I have been rocking August HARD. I'm doing 30 day shred, pretty much every day. Last saturday I did an 8 mile hike instead and sundays I do yoga to give my body a rest. I was feeling fantastic since August 1st. Rocking my workouts, eating great (I did have chinese on the day I did the 8 mile hike BUT I didn't eat as much as I would have in the past. I didn't feel full to the point of sick after so that was great. I went right back to healthy eating the next day. I was kicking butt at my workouts and feeling smaller, happier and energetic.

Suddenly yesterday I crashed. I put on 30 day shred and barely got through it. My arms felt like jello, my legs felt like lead, it was awful. Then I had the worst carb cravings i have ever had. I would have eaten anything. I ended up eating a mini bagel and two ounces of pretzels AFTER I was already done eating for the day. Then I slept terribley, couldn't fall asleep, woke up every half hour or so once I finally got to sleep. I do have occasional insominia but it is rare, i normally sleep VERY well. Today I felt like i was walking through a fog all day, my body felt slow and achey, my brain was on slow mo. Then I ate three pieces of pizza for dinner. I don't know what happened, it's like I just crashed but it's only been ten days so I don't understand!

I'm going to do a little yoga tonight and try not to eat anything else. Hopefully I feel better tomorrow.

    Does sound like a case of over training....I've done it many times myself.

Take a rest day emoticon

Even if it's only been 10 days, if doing a lot of high intensity exercise (shred) and/or volume, it can catch up quickly. I know for awhile there I was so frustrated cause it always seemed like I was getting sick, tired all day, but restless at night and had to learn how to dial it down or work in waves.
