Are You Addicted to Exercise?
In 2013, I broke my leg training for a local mountain bike race. I tried to convince myself and everyone around me that continuing with my training in preparation for a more important race later that summer was a normal thing to do. Looking back I recognise this behaviour as exercise addiction. I didn't want to stop because I was fearful of living without the high that returned me to what I now consider to be a reasonable baseline. This addiction was a symptom of other underlying issues revealed using home health testing. Is your training a healthy endeavour helping achieve your competitive goals or is it a crutch helping you manage your adrenal fatigue symptoms? Leave a comment below and let me know!
