Overtraining syndrome is a condition that haunts many runners, often leading to a frustrating halt in their training or even forcing them to step away from the sport. In this episode, we unravel the mysteries surrounding this condition with research affiliate Jill Colangelo. We explore the signs and symptoms of overtraining syndrome and why ultrarunners should be talking about it. We also dive into the underlying physiological mechanisms, how to differentiate it from normal fatigue and the impact it can have on both the body and mind and so much more.
