Minding Your Body

Most athletes over train. Ask athletes how they feel and the response is usually, I’m tired, beat up, this or that hurts, or when will the race be over? These are signs that they are tapping too far into their bodies’ natural ability to tolerate exercise. In other words, their minds are ahead of their bodies.

In general athletes are too goal oriented and need to embrace the process more. If you continue to train exactly as you are now in the absence of any goal, then you are truly a process-oriented athlete and probably giving yourself the right dosage of exercise your body requires every day. If not, you’re probably in an overreaching state of disharmony that can’t be sustained and by definition is overtraining. You’re pushing, and that’s not healthy in the long run.
