Is Insomnia and Running Normal? via @runnersworld #FitFluential

Culprit #1: Your training intensity is too hard too frequently or it hovers at the same moderate-to-hard effort most of the time (La La Land). This can be sneaky in hot weather like we've had this summer because your normal pace may turn into a "hard" effort and eventually lead to symptoms of over training which include insomnia. The Fix: Train by your effort, by your body and by your breath. You may have to run more slowly at times, but you'll recover more readily and reduce the chances of fatigue and insomnia related to over stressing the body. Make sure your training plan gradually increases over time and avoid playing catch up in mileage if you miss long runs or workouts. Train from where you are and continue to progress gradually. Make sure to include cutback weeks in mileage and intensity to allow your body time to recover.
