Triathlon Training - Why Am I So Tired?
I’m feeling a bit low this evening. I just don’t know what’s wrong with me - I’m just SO tired.
OK, I am doing some training pretty much six days a week, and generally fairly early in the morning (starting before 7). There’s also that 125 miles a fortnight on the bike - but that’s nothing!
But, I’m getting my fair slice of pillow time (7-8 hrs), AND I’m getting up at a fairly regular time - give or take half an hour. My training sessions generally aren’t that long either - mostly only 45 minutes or so.
And finally . . . I’m eating sensibly (good mix of carbs, protien and regular fluids), and taking daily measures of my weight (stable at 75-76kg) & pulse (generally stable at around the mid 50’s, but occasional dips into the 40’s), which indicate that I’m definitely NOT over-training.
So what’s wrong? Why am I just so completely exhusted?
