This amazing episode I've connected with Jill Colangelo who is a Harvard Ext. Masters student studying Health/Endurance Athletes and Over-training Syndrome + Hypothalamic Amenorrhea. Jill is an ex-ultrarunner and has experienced first-hand the suffering associated with Overtraining Syndrome (OTS) which led to her resisting, but ultimately ending her dependent relationship with running and embracing the recovery process. She has so much knowledge on these topics and works as a recovery coach for men + women who need additional support, insights and guidance along the way. In this episode we discuss:
-Jill's incredible story + where she's at now
-What is Overtraining Syndrome and how it's different from overtraining?
-How to be sure if you have OTS? What are the signs/symptoms?
-How to heal from OTS, general over-training fatigue and Hypothalamic Amenorrhea
-How to get your period back if it's MIA
-Learning who you are as a beautiful human beyond your "Athlete Identity"
-Beginning again with self-compassion and prioritizing self-care
... and more 3 Please tune in and again I would love your feedback.
