Bummer...<br>
woke up this morning (and yesterday morning, and the day before) with a racing heart, very tired, sore body, and no desire whatsoever to workout. I think I'm getting overtrained. Coach says it's normal to be this tired. I just want to sleep all day and not do anything <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
Bah. Grrrr.r.....arrrgh.<br><br>
**rant over

Sounds like you need to take a "me weekend" and get some rest.<br><br>
Hijack...BTW, I am using the HIM swim plan that you gave me last year. So far so good. You rock! Thanks!<br><br>
Back to the original subject. Take a couple of days and pamper yourself and recharge the batteries. Get back into it on Monday.

I myself had scheduled in a free weekend, which really would have netted me a solid 4 or 5 days with nothing more than a short daily run, when I got whacked with the Flu. So although I was down for the count and crying for momma, I got the rest I needed... two weeks worth!<br><br>
That's just to say that you aren't the only one. Take some time now, recharge your energy and enthusiasm, and then get back out there. Your workouts will be that much better for it. Because when you're refreshed you'll have more power and much more quality rather than merely suffering through.

I think <i>tired</i> is a normal consequence of training hard. The racing heart thing isn't. That might be an indication you're pushing too hard and need a rest. What the heck - maybe a margarita binge is in order!?!? <img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif">

Yup, sounds like your body needs a rest. Relax, have fun, and enjoy your little recupe period. You've earned it!<br><br>

Yeah, gotta watch that increased morning heart rate. A great indicator that something is not right.... and overtraining is a likely candidate.<br><br>
Take a couple of rest days, and see how your heart rate reacts.

Take it easy for a few days Meg<br><br>
My Coach keeps telling me that if 1 or 2 missed sessions make the difference between winning or loosing (In your case) or finishing or not (In mine) then we are both doing something wrong<br><br>
