Ben, I have a lot of experience of over-training in the past, especially with regard to restricted carbohydrate eating (which, compared to most athletes diets, includes the zone). If you are operating with low muscle glycogen stores, resulting from too much work and insufficient rest and carbohydrate intake, you will experience disturbed sleep (been there many times). Try not to get too wrapped up in worrying about your sleep, or placing too much emphasis upon the importance of sleep, this will in itself affect your sleep... resulting in an insomnia snowball!

How many hours of training are you doing each day? How much aerobic? How much CHO you eating?

Firstly, take some time out, rest and let your body catch up....after all its rest that makes you fitter and stronger, not training.
