…wanting to do more, being unable to wait, being (im)patient ?
unable = unwilling
I wonder how other athletes deal with this, especially in a worldwide situation like the one we have right now. And I’d like to hear/read your thoughts and tips related to dealing with this.
COVID is a special situation where cabin-fever is likely more common, especially if you live in a city.
Another factor is that perhaps you’re ready for more. If you really are recovered, then there’s no harm in doing more. However, don’t fool yourself. Don’t add more just because you can. Only do it if you think it’ll be a net positive.
There is a point in aerobic training that I call The Appetite. For me, it feels like a tipping point when capacity has reached a high level, recovery becomes super quick, and more volume can be added on an almost daily basis. If your recovery happens faster than you think, then this may be a factor.
Again though, be careful that you’re not just digging a deep hole for gratification purposes. That never ends well.
