Maybe it is due to the days getting shorter and weather getting colder. Maybe it is due to the end of a long season. Whatever the reason, I am feeling tired most of the time.

I have reduced the intensity and length of my training, still doing around 10 hours per week, however, it is a real effort, and recovery from workouts seem to take longer

Ha, I know how that feels.

Less than 6 weeks ago I did a 3:26 mara at IM wales, last night I struggled to do a 10K easy run and wanted to walk home.

I'm having to force a bit of exercise at the moment mostly because I don't want to get fat.

There's some nasty virus's going around the Uk at the moment - everyone who comes from there seems to bring them to the UAE.

I've had one which sent me into lethargy for about a month when I didnt have the energy to do much, and even though the brain was working the blood pressure was up as if I was fighting something.

On Sunday, I've got an end of season ride up my local mountain (approx 1400m climbing) with local mtb club... hopefully the competitive urge will see me put in decent effort

Can't complain about BP at the moment, I measure it often and it is normal. The last week or so my resting HR has been around 42bpm, in a meeting on Tuesday it dropped to 36... notice that when my HR is very low, I feel very lethargic

Suppressed resting HR is also a sign of overtraining (as well as an elevated one). Something to do with your sympathetic nervous system not having any omphh IIRR

Feeling much the same. I have the Nat Circuit TT Champs on Sunday and am really in two minds whether to bother.

Did a very easy paced 10km last week helping a mate to a PB, we went just under 46.00, it felt fine but not fine at the same time, hard to explain but my watch data showed my HR was working harder than I thought it was.

Been feeling rubbish all day today, came back from America with a bit of a sinus problem or cold, nothing bad, more irritating.

Struggled to get out of bed this morning and just lethargic all day.

Haven't done anything since returning the hire bike on monday which was 6 miles.

HR was up and HRV was low, so probably a combination of recovery from the races, the flight home and the sinus problem.

Hopefully feel a bit better tomorrow but nothing much planned for a few weeks, any training is short and easy.

Jeff

Did off road Mountain time trial and won, 3 minutes slower than my PB.

Actually felt pretty good, maybe the competitive aspect is what I need to get motivated

However, comparing with my best time, my average power was down 20W and HR 4bpm higher, so probably indicate some loss of fitness
