Dr Lim from SKRATCH LABS talks about overtraining. This is an insidious syndrome from doing too much and not recovering enough. It is complex, can take 2-4 weeks to recover from, and is all too common.
Avoiding overtraining along with reducing injuries from training is one of the reasons we need coaches, very few people can coach themselves when training hard and operating harder!

The 106th Rescue Wing is on Long Island. Many of our Guardsmen are NYC Firefighters and Police Officers. In this series we will hear from New Yorkers who responded to the attacks here in New York. All of this on the backdrop of the news of the last few weeks. From our FDNY, NYPD, EMS first responders, and our citizens who perished in the attack,  to our Marines we recently lost, I hope we will honor and remember all Americans and partner forces who have made sacrifices during GWOT.
