Overtrained? - My WKO PMC

Last night I started feeling weak after my SST ride... This morning I woke up feeling clammy and tired. Been exhausted all day. I upped my training quite a bit over the last week, maybe too fast?

-LOW body temp. 96.8 at the PEAK today. Was barely 96 this morning.
-Complete exhaustion
-Wattages seemed low the last 2-3 rides.

Overtrained or overreached and in need of a couple days rest?

I doubt 'overtrained,' though overreached and in need of rest? Sure

I haven't been using performance manager for very long so take this with a big grain of salt, but i would say you didn't let yourself recover from that Saturday ride. That ride was 7.5 times your CTL! That means you did your entire usual weekly training volume in one day. IMO, that would warrant a few days off.

*edit* Was that a Bagel Ride by any chance?

Are you limiting calorie intake? Regardless, up the carbs for the next couple days, in addition to the rest...

Isn't 96.8 dangerously low body temp?

If your resting pulse is also up, then yes, sounds like you overdid it.

You could just be sick. Sometimes infections cause these kinds of problems. And, i think your thermometer isn't working.

A CTL of 44 will not cause overtraining syndrome. You're just tired or about to get sick.

Over-reached. Take a few days off and you should spring back.

I was restricting my calories, and that may have been what did me in now that I think about it, keeping my body from recovering as well as it could have. I'm trying to get to 160lbs, and my body and I are having disagreements. 5' 11" / 165lbs / 7-8% bodyfat right now.

For what it's worth, I ate a good amount of carbs and protein last night, slept 11 hours, and this morning I feel a LOT better.

nafun, it wasn't the bagel ride, it was the RBM North ride that starts at the richardson bikemart location.

Your TSB is not out of the norm for somebody during a hard block of training. Take two days off and it will bounce back up. Also your CTL dosent really show that 300TSS ride did you any harm (it didnt jump that much).

Can you sleep well at night?

If not, then you are probably over trained.
If yes, then just take it easy for a week or so.

That's what Ive been told by a trainer when I thought I was overtrained.

No, mine is typically about 97. The "normal" body temp is a myth. If I am 98.6 it means I have a fever...

As for the OP, doing a 300 TSS ride on a CTL of ~45 is asking for a world of fatigue. You just need to rest. That's not overtraining, that's overreaching. And as others have said, you may just be getting sick, or that 300 TSS may have made/allowed you to get sick.
