On Monday I went to the gym with 25kg ruck sack and beasted it for 2 hours, did some stretches, eat plenty of protien, on Tuesday I went for steady 4 mile run, then wed, thurs 10 miles steady cycle round trip to work, friday 10 mile round trip on bike and 4/5 mile trail run again steady, surely the cycling wouldn't be enough to make my legs tired, they feel very dead, I'm struggling to keep heart rate raised when training. I'm really up for a good run but don't think my legs can carry me, any recomendations?

In reply to danrock101: classic over training... takes a lot of strength out of the legs cycling

How long have you had this sort of regime?

I was hoping not :(

First week back on it but on and off for a few years, usually my body responds better, must be getting old.

Rest is when your body gains strength by repairing the muscle fibre damage you've done while training. Take three or four days off. Seriously!

As you get older you recover more slowly from the damage caused by training.
