That's probably the most "all inclusive" of my threads.

I know what you mean about not wanting to count PT as your workout, I always feel like if I didn't lift then I didn't workout. So... yeah, I'm guilty of the same mindset. But the PT is still breaking you down, and it's just adding to your workload. You'll have to forego the extra weight training and endurance work for a while, but in the longer run, you'll be better off for it.

I'm not trying to "scare" you into scaling back your training, but just speaking from my experience, it's definitely something you should take seriously. Once your body gets really out of whack, things like stress fractures happen much easier and then you'll really regret not cutting the volume sooner. I know I really regret not acting sooner, my foot still isn't 100%.
