    Warning complaints and whining follows...

    Man o man. Last week I was a beast and could do no wrong. I submitted blue belts and learned a lot of technique. My conditioning was great, so I ran over 5k extra for three days.

    This week nothing goes right. First, I get a baseball-sized bruise after giving a unit of whole blood. I get schooled in wrestling practice. I tired out early at boxing. Finally, I was dead during all three grappling practices so far this week. There is simply no energy in me!

    Why is this happening? How do I get back to the high of last week?

    Lack of sleep. Sleep rejuvinates mind and body. You need minimum 8 hours of sleep per night. Try it and see if you feel better.

    The cause is the loss of blood. It takes a couple days to fully regenerate all that blood. You should've taken at least a day or 2 completely off.

    Don't sweat it, you'll still have the same stamina soon.

    Take a few days off. Now is the perfect time anyway, as it is friday. Take today, tommorow, and sunday off to get some rest. Get a lot of sleep and keep your head up.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I took today off, and I feel damn guilty about it! The weekends are my favorite days to train, so if I need more rest I'll do it Monday.

    Not enough sleep, or your diet [email protected]!

    If its not one of those 2 things, then you MIGHT be over training!
