Too much of a good thing

When we find an activity we enjoy, we can end up wanting to do it all the time.  And surely if the activity we enjoy is exercise then doing more will make us more healthy? Well yes and no.  Regular exercise is really important for healthy heart and lung function and to ensure our muscles and bones are strong.  But if we want to maintain a good level of fitness we must respect the need for rest and recognise the dangers of overtraining.
