Subject: Training Fatigue. I think?
I train regularly and can handle volume and intensity but the other day I had something happen that hasnt happen before. I noticed my heart rate dropping while on the bike. Not a big deal I figured just a little tired so I cut it short. Swimming the next evening same thing. I felt my workout getting more and more laboring after 2,000 meters which is very strange. I typicaly swim 4,000M 3 times per week, sometimes more. Why is this. This has never happened before and never happens on my morning workouts only my second workout of the day? Any suggestions? If I were just getting tired no big deal push through but this is different. Breathing is more difficult and my body just doesn't want to go? Is it lack of calories? Exhaustion? (although I always train well in the morning).
Have any of you had anything like this. This has happened two days in a row and is kind of strange.

Lets hear it

I think we all understand exhaustion/being tired and know what those symptoms are, but it sounds as if this is something new. It might be a safe play to get checked-out by your doctor. Anytime it's a breathing issue, i would err on the side of caution.

Hope you feel better.

Have you had your iron checked (including ferritin)? What you are going through sounds a lot like what has happened to me recently, and it came on pretty suddenly for me (although I know why).

There are other things your doctor can test for pretty easily-- it's worth a visit.
