Overtraining Test

Runners World published an article back in 2007 referencing a questionnaire developed by Jack Raglin, Ph.D., to prevent overtraining. Take this quiz once a week--or once a day during periods of hard training. A score of 40 or more means you should rest more and run less. A score of 15 or less suggests you're balancing your training and recovery well. A score that falls in the middle isn't of immediate concern, but should be monitored. "Look for rapid changes," Raglin says. "If your score suddenly skyrockets, it's time to take a break."
