I write this article in the hope of providing some insight into how and why overtraining can occur, and how to identify this early on to ensure you are not injured for a prolonged period.
I will commence this post with 3 questions:
- Have you had an injury that’s hindered your training/racing?
- If so, do you know how and why the injury occurred?
- Thirdly and most importantly, do you now know how to avoid this type of injury reoccurring in the future?
If you answered no to question 1 then you are extremely fortunate and questions 2 and 3 are irrelevant. If you answered yes to question 1, but no to either 2 or 3 then this is definitely a concern.
