220 Triathlon Magazine - - Train Smarter -

Over time as an ath­lete, you will de­velop the abil­ity to pick up on the phys­i­o­log­i­cal sig­nals that your body gives you through ex­er­cise and how to sep­a­rate be­tween gen­eral ex­er­cise-in­duced fatigue, which is ac­tu­ally good to ex­pe­ri­ence, and the type of fatigue that comes with over­train­ing or the early on­set of an ill­ness. If you can tell the dif­fer­ence you will know when it’s time to take an ex­tra rest day and re­cover be­fore start­ing to train again. Ex­am­ples of th­ese sig­nals in­clude loss of ap­petite, need­ing to sleep ex­ces­sively, decrease in per­for­mance lev­els and a lack of de­sire to train.
