Our expert says:
Difficult one. You're spending an enormous amount of time training, and quite apart from the fact that this involves physical effort that might cause overtraining, there's also a commitment of time that you're making. To wake up at 5, and then spend nearly 3 hours a day in training is a lot. And the fact that you're getting grief from those around you suggests that maybe you're over-committing. NOte that this has nothing to do with whether or not you're doing too much, it's more whether or not you feel that it's too much.
When you say part of it is obsession, well, there's no easy way to put a positive spin on that. So I think part of this is that you have to question your own approach to training, and say that maybe you are doing too much. Not because others suggest it, but because you yourself say it's obsession.
That said, if you have the time, and you're not compromising the rest of your life to train, then it's not a bad thing. It seems that you can manage the training load, so overdoing it does not seem to be a concern right now. obviously, you have to be aware of it and if things start going badly, back off. But I just think it's more important to evaluate the time commitment and ask why people feel it's too much. are they seeing something you're not? Are you training at the expense of other things? That is more important in this particular situation.
