Causes of Overtraining

The most common causes of overtraining are quick increases in frequency, intensity, or duration of training sessions, or a combination without the necessary recovery. Runners who increase the frequency of their interval training sessions, runners who are simply running too many races, and runners who suddenly increased mileage too quickly are at risk for experiencing signs and symptoms of overtraining.

Signs of Overtraining 

Here are some signs of over-training.  If you feel some of these, please let me know and we can discuss some approaches, because trust me, it is NOT FUN!
  • Washed-out feeling, tired, drained, lack of energy
  • Mild leg soreness, general aches and pains
  • Pain in muscles and joints
  • Sudden drop in performance
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Decreased Immunity (increased number of colds, and sore throats)
  • Decrease in training capacity / intensity
  • Moodiness and irritability
  • Depression
  • Loss of enthusiasm for the sport
  • Decreased appetite
  • Increased incidence of injuries.
*Symptoms taken from

Overtraining Recovery Strategies

The first step to avoid overtraining is to monitor yourself for the symptoms listed above, and react immediately should they appear. Start by taking three to five days of complete rest or very reduced activity, or more if you’ve had symptoms for a while. If you’ve overtrained for several weeks, plan on taking 10 to 14 days off from training. We at CrossFit Bournemouth plan rest days on Thursdays and Sundays for a reason to allow us time to recover and perform better, increase performance, increase results
