Overtraining...argh!
!!

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Lol okay ya'll...i made the mistake of overtraining for sure..my back and hip were just getting worse and worse so i took 2 days off..this is day 2. Doing alot better than i was 2 days ago and im gonna refigure my workout plan..5 days a week..45 minute rides at a 12 to 13 mph pace then working up from there slowly. Seriously slowly this time..not like last time where i said id go slowly then ran full force. It is not fun to fall over screaming with a muscle cramp or whateve the heck that is cramping up! Tommorow will be back on the bike and i hope all will go well! I hope everyone had a great day! Be careful out there! emoticon

    Sometimes it takes a while to see what our bodies can handle and now you know. I have limits as well. I wish I could do more but my body balks. LOL. Your plan is great.

    Yes! It is hard to reason in rest days sometimes! Especially when its something you like and that hour goes by really fast! All of the sudden 14 miles would have gone by. Well it made a good reality check!

    My rule of thumb for a while now has been, "First do no harm"

Once you get in the groove, it's tough to schedule in break days and God forbid you take 2-3 in a row. But one we get beyond the total noob amateur level (3-6 months) it pays to ease back to prevent injury.

Good luck...stay strong and stay healthy!

  Good Luck with the new plan!It is very tempting to push hard but it is better to go at a slow and steady pace.
