Episode 48: Overtraining syndrome/Frazer Atkinson mental performance coach

We often hear of overtraining but it seems quite nebulous. Is it really a thing? How is it defined and diagnosed and treated and most importantly can it be prevented? These are surprisingly tough questions to answer and I explain why as well as the current state of understanding of this complex issue. Endurance athletes and triathletes spend a lot of time preparing their bodies for competition but are they preparing their minds? Frazer Atkinson, a mental performance coach joins me to discuss this important aspect of getting the best from ourselves.
