Our expert says:
not necessarily, though no one can really tell you if you are overdoing it or not, that's something that each person must assess for themselves.
The fact that you are tired all the time suggests that yes, you could well be overdoing it. It may also be that you are not necessarily training too much, but that your other aspects of life are a little bit too hectic and the exercise pushes you over the edge. So you see, training is all relative - what is too much now might be fine in a few months time when things are not quite as busy. However, it is one thing you can control, so perhaps you should look at reducing the training volume a little.
I'm not a big fan of just utting it out completely - why take a month off? That's basically going from one extreme to another. Instead, I would say just cut back by maybe 20% - if you are currently doing 60 minutes a day, do 50 minutes, or training 4 days a week instead of 5, and you'll see a difference. I think that you need to assess the whole picture though, not just exercise, because 3 to 5 days a week is not massively extreme, so it does suggest that there are other factors precipitating your fatigue.
