enjoyed the first article...such a simple message that we hear over and over again but have trouble putting into practice.
Slow down, see the results...go to hard, get hurt.
simple isn't it.

Thanks Rudolf. I enjoyed reading the article.
And I have to agree. From my experience , I know I am overtrained and need a few days rest when I can not get my heart rate up to the usual levels at training. Even my resting rate drops lower than normal for me. But the biggest indicator is that I go out for a long run or a race & just can't get my heart rate up to the usual levels, or if I am doing an interval session I can not get my heart rate up. I know I need a few days rest.
I know that's not what the literature has always predicted (it predicts a higher than normal heart rate) but it is what my experience tells me.
