listen to your body. overtraining is as bad as undertraining.

Make sure you have plenty of rest and recovery time - if you can go every day, great, so long as you don't go in already wiped out and sore.
Training tired can make you sloppy and sloppy= injury prone.
Don't let your ego get the best of you or you'll end up out again.
So train hard, but train smart. Also Ibuprofen before class will help any tenderness/soreness and (according to my doc) reduce the likelihood of certain types of injury.

Warm up well before and stretch afterwards. Every time without fail, especially if you train once or twice a day.
And read the stickies in the PT forum. After I did, I realized I wasn't eating enough at the right times to train once or twice every day.

Wow! Thanks for the fucking awesome replies! To nwp: I'm 25. But almost two days later though, and I'm walking around the house like an old man! My hips are totally destoyed. I've done some stretches, but they don't seem to help much. I'll keep trying though. I'd like to train tonight, but it's looking grim. I have to work @ midnight too (which is basically walking around. GREAT)."Prison is for rapists, thieves and murderers.

I like to refer to it as "Stretchy Parkour" where you try to come up with a stretch for every object, ledge, or hole that you walk by.
People look at us funny but we could give a ****. It is a great way to get some more stretching minutes especially since you are walking and your large muscle groups are probably relatively warm.

I'm enjoying this thread because I'm in the same position of now being able to train due to a relatively open schedule at the moment, but trying to walk a fine line between overtraining and hitting a sweet spot. I also want to thank everyone for the good replies.
