I’d like to raise a question regarding overtraining. Two weeks ago I had my A race, a gran fondo of 110 miles and +3,700hm. The race was a success, and i’m very happy with the results and TR.
Anyway, after this race, I gave myself one week of rest, this is, not doing any sport and focus on resting and sleeping. After that, the second week I started with the build program, the thing is that I’m seeing some issues that worries me. I have my HR very high comparing before the race, and the Garmin “condition performance” feature is telling me a -10, which is a bad number.
On the other hand, TP is not telling me that I’m overtrained, nor my symptoms, I’m sleeping good, I’m not hungry, nor feeling tired all the time.
At the end, what worries me is having the HR too high. Should I worry and give me more rest or should I ignore it and continue with the training?
Thank you all.
