[RC] How to tell if you are over doing it? - A. Perez

 Many, many years ago when I was a runner - correct that: a 
JOGGER, I read a good book on training for long-distnace 
running by jeff Galloway (former olympic marathoner).  He 
contends the most critical element to any training regime was 
to REMAIN UNIJURED, and that many 'serious' runners over-train, 
and set themselves back by injuring thmeselves in training. He 
recommends an every-other-day training program, to avoid over-
training and associated injuries, and allow time for muscle 

He gave a list of signs that you are over training:

1.  Frequent injuries, minor or not so minor;
2.  lack of enthusiasm: stops being a pleasure, becomes a chore
3.  changes in appetite and /or sleep patterns
4.  changes in mood: irritability, lethargy, depression

Do any of these apply to endurance horses?  Any other 'tell-
tales' to look for?
