Fix your engine before over-training or your engine gets worse unfortunately.

If your car engine does not work properly great fuel will not help it.

It would be unwise to then drive that car a lot with its busted engine. You would fix the engine.

*** If your personal body “engine” does not work properly then exercising a lot is similarly unwise.

Good food and drinks help a little but do not fix the engine.

Once Primed you learn how to fix your engine through lifestyle, environment, food and drinks.

If you go to the hospital (a poor environment) then they will prescribe drugs (generally) that address the symptoms but do not fix your engine. If you are unlucky they will try to remove body parts along with expensive meds.

*** Please FIX your engine before over-training. Training at the expense of sleep is very unwise because you regenerate and repair during sleep. If exercising then great sleep after is ESSENTIAL. Training in a poor environment and at the wrong time is also a prescription for illness.

The worst part is that by over-training (over taxing your busted engine) you are wasting time and probably harming (unwittingly) your family. They would prefer your time / company than seeing how big your medal is.

Enjoy exercise as it is cool but not too much, never at the expense of sleep or in a bad environment (most gyms).

How your excessive exercise harms your family here.

Extract from article:

We should always aim for quality over quantity with our training and not get sucked into the more is better trap. There are recent studies that show runners can live longer but up to a certain point, and not too fast or too frequently. The sweet spot seemed to hover around the 40-50km per week mark (walking and/or running) with not more than 5 days per week.

See here for the studies and a great TEDx talk: Run for your life! At a comfortable pace, and not too far: James O’Keefe.

“Extreme endurance training and racing can take a toll on your long-term cardiovascular health. For the daily workout, it may be best to have more fun and endure less suffering in order to attain ideal heart health.” Dr. James O’Keefe Jr. is the director of Preventative Cardiology Fellowship Program and the Director of Preventative Cardiology at Cardiovascular Consultants at the Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute.

And another:

Is your pursuit of health hurting you and your family?

Are you spending lots of time away from your loved ones running and biking around in circles? Are you promoting cheap, processed carbs (sugar in your body) as a healthy way to “fuel” your excessive cardio? Are you chugging sugarade thinking it is good for you? If so, your children are watching and will probably copy your endeavor to be healthy that is more than likely not going to succeed in the long term.
