Our expert says:
I think that some time off gym is an excellent idea. I don't mean a complete break, that would probably frustrate you and cause another form of stress which you don't need. But I think that you should reduce the volume. Why not try only 3 days of gym a week, including two on the weekend. This would mean that you can sleep in four days a week and just this extra hour of sleep may make the world of difference. You will still get three days a week of exercise in, provided you can change your schedule to allow you to go to the gym on weekends, and you will get an additional 4 hours of sleep per week and not have to recover from such long hard days. I'm sure that by the end of the year, after Christmas, you will be inspired to get back to the usual gym routine. And the beauty is, that if you keep up with a few sessions a week, making sure not to go out of your way to exercise, you will have kept a level of fitness that allows you to get back into it very easily.
Good luck and rest well
