That's probably correct. My thinking is that I'm only training 5-6 hours weekly so my body has lots of time to recover vs. an 8 hour + kind of training schedule. Also, I'll be throwing in rest weeks occasionally to let myself recover. If I start getting any of the over training warning signs then I'll do an easy week or two.
