Heading out on a ski day today, my legs were both heavy and shaky, I felt weak and had trouble simply putting one foot before the other, my heart was pounding, and even the smallest exertion caused me to "suck wind" big time. Tough for me to admit, but I am overtrained.
Not all that surprising really for a neurotic/addicted exerciser such as myself. A normal week for me is four Crossfit WOD's, four climbing work-outs, and four days of ski touring, racking up as much as 2,000 metres a day. You can do it for a while, but eventually, it hits you hard. You find you've dug a hell of a hole, and now ya gotta get out.
