I’ve been keeping track of my HRV using HRV4Training. Usually, my HRV starts to bounce back up during the recovery week. This time, my HRV is actually dropping during the recovery week and is consistently below my HRV while in my training block. I’m in the last couple days of my recovery week after a particularly brutal training block.
In fact when I look back over the last couple of months, my HRV has been going down since January. I haven’t been ill in these last couple of months, could this be an indication that I’ve been pushing myself too hard?
