Thanks for all the replies, guys! I was able to nap today, but I'm not sure what's changed (if anything).

Sounds familiar...

Jordan, you make a good point. A simple formula for overtrained: [recoverability*] - [other stress] < [training] - if there are other things in my life taking a toll, LIKE EXAMS!, then training volume doesn't really need to be as great to push me into a bad state. (Is that a word?)

Mike OD, I'm going to try all of those things. I'm getting at least 4, usually 6g of fish oil per day, should that increase? How much vit C, and when? You suggested in another thread to start taking it due to fasting so I bought some today in 1000mg tablets.

Could you help me list the recovery techniques that you're aware of? I probably won't be able to do all of them regularly but if I know about them, and try them a least once...

sleep
food
slow run (does this work? maybe if athletics wasn't my sport...)
contrast showers/cold plunge/ice bath
massage/myofascial release
self massage/foam rolling/self-myofascial release

I'm having a shower (hot/cold/hot), reading a book (not a textbook...), then straight to sleep (I hope).

Fish oil is fine....try taking 3-6 1000mg Vit C tabs spread throughout the day....esp when you feel you are going through your most stressful times. Who knows....most benefit may be at night when your cortisol is going up causing an increase in blood sugar keeping you awake. So maybe Vit C a couple hours before bed might help out.
