Thursday: Adrenal Fatigue? What’s that?!

Thursday: Adrenal Fatigue? What’s that?!

Recently I participated in a competition found myself not feeling sore but just tired. This last week I have been feeling ore symptoms feeling exhausted craving sugar and not feeling resting when waking up after a full nights rest of sleep.

 

To recap what lead to my fatigue was my WODGear competition. The day before I was nervous thinking about WODs and how the next day of competing would play out. Day of the competition woke up early stomach filled with butterflies before the WODs watched people compete soaking in the energy from the people and competition. All of these factors lead to adrenal fatigue.

 

This last week my body has been trying to recover from the high levels of hormones released for two days straight. Adrenal fatigue is caused my high levels of hormones released over a short period thus causes adverse effects on the body.

 

Recovering from adrenal fatigue can be difficult and takes time for the body to reach homeostasis once again. Recovery starts with getting a full nights rest over a week period eating a balance diet avoid stress be happy laugh and do not over train.

 

Something to ponder on are you driving life or is life driving you?
