    I had the same sort of problem with running. I've taken about a year off running and have been starting to get back into it again, but I still end up planning a 10k and then feeling like it's too easy.

    I think the main thing is accepting that rest is just as important as training. It's hard though when running becomes more than just a run, for me it was like a type of meditation. Now I try to tell myself that doing things properly and not overdoing it will let me do more of what I enjoy. It's a bad trap to fall into when you feel like you need more if you're not totally exhausted after training, a lot of my sessions now I feel energised afterward rather than totally depleted. Maybe try just having one crazy session a week? Then you can look forward to it when you training normally and it will probably be beneficial rather than detrimental.
    Straight punches make you go blind. More damage is done to a criminals nervous system when they are struck. Strikes that make you stronger. All this and more systema douchebaggery:

    For a while there I waas training 35-40 hours a week as well as working full time. Kept this up for a long time then had tos top all together for 7 months as a result of torn ligaments with a side order of multiple stress fractures.
    The cycle has repeated itself for years. Usually im out for a couple of months a year.
    Its annoying as hell but i cant seem to stop doing it.

    I just enjoy exercise too much. Sometimes when im trying to cut back I'll say "i'll just go for a short jog today and leave it at that". Next thing I know i've been running for 3 or 4 hours.

    I know it sounds like a simple case of cut back, but i just dont seem to be able to do it.

    Then when im out of action i end up jsut aout climbing the walls.

    Anyone else experienced this problem?

    Stress fractures and torn ligaments sound like symptoms of something besides overtraining. If your getting stress fractures and torn ligaments your moving your body in a way it wasnt designed to move.

    As for overtraining, train hard but infrequently. If you feel like crap its because your body is in the process of healing and adapting. Its no benefit to you to continue working out until youve healed/adapted.

    Well I used to overtrain too but what got me to stop was doing full body workouts 3 times a week under an hour each time and just force yourself not to do anymore and you should notice way better results and it will convince you that more is NOT better.
