    Thanks for your input. Yes, I suspect it was just overtraining too.
    I've heard of something called 'nervous overtraining' where the
    nervous system gets kinda frazzled. That sounds like my case. I seem
    to be in fine shape again now after taking the 1mg of Ativan
    yesterday. I probably should have worked up more gradually to my
    current levels of training.
