Diagnosis: overtraining syndrome. That’s straight from Joe Friel, who I contacted a few days ago to discuss what I’ve been going through over the past few months. I’m really in no position to argue with Joe, because he’s Joe Friel. It was all kind of coincidental; he had recently written a few articles on the concept of overtraining, and feeling like that could have been my situation, I tossed him a line through his blog and he tossed one back. Pretty cool.
Fortunately I feel like I started to turn the corner about a week ago, but this insight definitely helps.
