"Put more succintly"

Perfect topic for a series of articles, its something I see a lot of people asking about (that and how to train while recovering from an injury)

However there were too few spelling errors to get that sense of community involvement in the writing process, perhaps we can dedicate this thread to finding synonyms for some of the words you used instead

Cool article. I've wondered before if I'm 'overtraining', but my life-gets-in-the-way breaks of sometimes a week, sometimes 4 days, etc. happens way too often for me to believe that my 3-4 (sometimes 5 if I'm feeling real good) a week running or weight lifting really makes me get even close. I've been guilty of wondering about the "I feel a little tired.....I wonder if I'm overtraining" train of thought before. Once about 10 months ago I might've been overreaching....otherwise, no.

--------------------------------------
As for the little things...

Last sentence under the "What is Overtraining?" heading:
as youíll see, the earlier parts of the definition sort of assume information about the earlier parts.
I'm guessing one of these should be changed to "latter"....
Second paragraph under "Overtraining vs. Overreaching" heading:
if you recovery within 2-3 weeks, you were only over-reached.

Iím actually going to be difficult and look at them in reverse order since, as youíll see, the earlier parts of the definition sort of assume information about the earlier parts.

latter


if you recovery within 2-3 weeks, you were only over-reached.

recover - no hyphen in overreached

and non-functional over-reaching (where you donít). But thatís sort of beside the point of what I want to talk about.

no hyphen

Between those two things, over-training or even overreaching tends to be rare in the general population

no hyphen

And since they rarely miss training ever in the first place and go at it week in and week out and month in and month out, they can really do themselves some damage when they start falling into that trap

remove word "ever"

When you finally do get them to rest, it can take months or longer for them to come back

punctuate the end of the sentence

Here are a few exemplary case studies; read them as nothing more

I'm not sure this is the correct word - perhaps archetypal?

His comment : “Man was I overtrained.”

Fragment - insert punctuation

My friend Eva, who’s book Winter of Discontent I reviewed previously, got so deep in the hole at one point that it took her 6 +months of reduced training before she even started to come back

whose, insert punctuation

But if you recover in 2 weeks, you weren’t overtrained, you were simply over-reached

remove word, remove hyphen

That is, the distinction has little predictive value, itís only descriptive and only long after the fact.

Replace with semicolon

That is, if it took you 2-3 weeks to return to the same or higher fitness level, you were only over-reached.

remove hyphen

You canít make it happen faster and you keep resting and recovering until you come back. And hopefully donít learn a very hard lesson during that time.

consider rewording this

Genetics is one

Got all the first ones but the punctuation on that last sentence is after the unnecessary parenthetical statement.

thanks
