Last week was a problem, friends and fans. I was a classic class of overtraining…itis.
What are the symptoms, mayhaps?
1) Exhaustion and irritability
2) Constant thirst
3)Hating puppies, unicorns and rainbows
Friends, when I start to hate puppies, you know things have gotten serious
Not only is it bad news for everyone around me, it’s counter-productive. I noticed this as I was taking Muay Thai on Saturday. It was then I decided I would take the rest of the day off and rest. Sunday I made it clear I did not want to train jiu jitsu, drill, or anything of the sort. Instead I did some cardio and bodyweight exercises, went home and relaxed, and even ate a few extra calories to get myself back to normal.
So a word of advice: push yourself, but not to the point where you hate things that normally give you joy, like puppies.
