If you want to run your best marathon this season, less may be more. Join Coach Rebeka Stowe and Therapeutic Yoga Teacher and Massage Therapist Amanda Kerpius for an immersive workshop experience to learn more about Overtraining Syndrome.
Overtraining happens when the training load exceeds the body’s ability to recover. This leads to decreased performance, susceptibility to injury and sickness, anxiety, depression and sleep disturbances. Simply put, overtraining is under-recovery due to keeping the body in constant over-drive. Learn about the signs and symptoms of Overtraining Syndrome and walk away with tools you can use to prevent it from derailing your marathon training.
