Published on April 10th 2018


This week on our Triathlon Training Explained show, we are discussing all things overtraining! We will be looking at the causes, symptoms and how to recover. Subscribe to GTN: Check out the GTN Shop: In association with Training Peaks - As triathletes we are constantly trying to find that perfect balance between training hard and getting faster and stronger, with recovery. We are guilty of it, and sometimes cut down rest and recovery a little more than we probably should, in order to fit in all our training around the working week.
