[QUOTE=Nik Nichols;1110715]I think that is a big part of it, but like you said, I never felt as bad for as long as I did . But thanksgiving I did not over eat. I did have to plates of dinner, no sweets. But fri,sat,sun I did not eat near enough for me for no other reason then I was busy and just did not get to it.
I am not 100% happy with that though and will get a complete physical anyway to be sure. Plus I am way over due for one.[/QUOTE]
I think you are wise to get the physical, just to doublecheck. That said, it is surprising how bad undereating combined with overexercising can make you feel. I have run up against that wall a few times, and really got burned by it some two months ago. I made some significant changes to my diet and exercise as a result. I used to scoff at reports that Michael Phelps would eat 12,000 calories a day when he was in really hard swim training for the Olympics. Now I'm not so sure.

Also, since you mentioned that your back is twinging on you a bit, I thought you might find the following post I made to my Workout Log to be helpful[LIST][*][URL="http://board.crossfit.com/showpost.php?p=1106861&postcount=1258"]Fixing My Back - Posterior Chain, Body Core, Upper Back & Shoulder Exercise Regimen[/URL] (WFS)[/LIST]
It includes numerous instructional exercise videos; links to books, websites, and articles; and a simple and scalable exercise regimen. Since I messed up my lower back a wee bit, I did my usual geeky research project and dug up some really useful material. Hopefully you'll find some of it to be of good use too.

HAHAHA I figured as much!:bash0000: That is you busting on Mat. How is the knee?

I would not chance it till you are beating him on a regular basis on the workout. Unless you can out run him!;)

Agreed on the diet and eating to little. I teeter totter on it. I get on it and eat and put on a few pounds then get comfortable and slack off and loose those pounds and start crashing workouts. I have hit that wall a few times too.

Thanks for the back stuff.

He can outrun me right now Nik !! Knee definately feels improved today, although I have been careful with it rather than the usual testing it every 5 minutes. Reckon I got a few days before running comes back.
