I never stop what I´m doing if I get low (excercise or other things), I just push through. But I´ve started to wonder if this is just not good for me. I just listened to the Juicebox podcast #26 with Kris Freeman (Olympic cross country skier) and he said the following:
“Every time I went low I was just crushing myself for my next training session. I´ve actually experienced adrenal fatigue a couple of times in the racing season. Once I get adrenal fatigue I might as well pack it in for the season because it´s not comnig back until I´ve rested a couple of months. And every time I get low I´m wasting adrenalin.”
I´ve also heard from another type 1 that a physiotherapist had told him to just pack it up if he gets low while excercising, walk slowly home and rest. If not he would just ruin what he was trying to bulid. He had started doing that and said it worked for him.
Any thoughts? Informed knowledge of how this works? I´m hesitating following the advice because I rarly do anything physical without going low to the point where I release adrenalin.
