Health Tip: Avoid Overtraining

Signs that you may have overdone it

(HealthDay News) -- Training can help strengthen your body and prepare you for an athletic event. But you're not doing yourself a favor by overtraining, the Cleveland Clinic says.

The clinic mentions these signs that you've overdone it:

  • When you develop a psychological distaste for working out.
  • When you feel sore all the time.
  • When you frequently feel tired for no apparent reason.
  • When you seem to take longer to "recover" from exercise.
  • When you develop symptoms of mild depression.
  • When your strength or stamina appears to be declining.
