Sounds like you need a short break.8.5 miles last night. The tacos for dinner weighed me down then I got the chills that wouldn't go away. A few ibuprofen before bed helped and the only thing today is tired legs.
That sounds pretty normal, particularly when you’re getting back into a routine and/or doing too much too soon. Have you tried shifting your runs to the morning/afternoon? It might help those endorphins settle after an extended period of rest before bed.I’m trying to get back into running after many years out the game (though staying relatively fit via lifting, despite working a desk job). Sometimes I find I can’t sleep after even what feels like an easy run - my legs feel tired and my body amped, and I find myself kicking around until 3am, even if I have work early the next day. Anyone have this insomnia problem and successfully deal with it?
yup.Getting back into running at 50 has required a lot. Lots of patience, and the willingness to start over from zero as often as necessary. Complementary exercise; for strength yes, but also for flexibility, balance, and kinesthesia / body awareness. For me that includes cycling, in-line skating, Pilates, HIIT, and yoga.That sounds pretty normal, particularly when you’re getting back into a routine and/or doing too much too soon.

On the flip side, one of the first signs of overtraining that I experience is restless sleep. Overtraining isn’t a defined mileage or intensity, rather it’s the threshold that an individual can handle at that given time. Going from couch to 20m a week might be overkill for one individual. Joints, ligaments, and bone take much longer than muscle tissue to make adaptations at the cellular level. Running is a fickle and demanding ‘sport’ — no shame in taking things slow and easy.
In my case, I ran intervals on Wednesday evening and then didn't run again until late Friday afternoon - I think it was exactly 44 1/2 hours between when I finished and when I next started. I normally have a day's break between each run, so I would have run again early on Friday morning.7 miles last night. When you guys say 2 days of rest, how many hours are you talking?
