LOSS OF APPETITE
Symptoms: You don’t crave those carbs, cake and cans of cold lager you’re used to ‘recovering’ with. You may be losing weight, too. Hormonal upset caused by overtraining can lead to an unwelcome boost in the production of epinephrine and norepinephrine, which can inhibit appetite. Solutions: You need that calorie intake to run but may need to cut back on your weekly mileage at first to get your hunger back. Easing back on training is a start. Also, more rigidly track your daily fuel and ensure you get enough high-quality carbohydrates and lean protein as you gradually return to running at regular levels.
