Default Is overtraining a myth?

I may get some heat for even raising such a question, but I read more and more interviews and beliefs from strength coaches and personal trainers that the term overtraining is used way too often and that it's more so a matter of not revoering enough. I know athletes work for years to be able to tolerate multiple sessions a day and long training hours a week, but they also eat right, sleep well, and use a bunch of revovery methods to make sure their mind and body are good to go. Just wanted to raise the topic and see what everyone thinks on the subject.
