Hello guys,

I am a beginner.
I understand why i get tired after diving.
but this weekend drained my out completely.

I did 2 sesseion on Saturday, around 2 hours each. came home tired, ate go to bed.
It was a whole day activitites. drove 2.5 hrs to dive for 4 hrs and drive 2.5 hr back home... I go there very often. almost every saturday.

However on this weekend , Sunday, i have a headache and sleep almost the whole day!! i am so tired. I needed to skip Gym because of that.

Is it normal ? anyone experienced that ?
I mean, i think maybe because i was pushing the limited ? i did make a new PB...

and surely i do not want to feel like this every weekend.

TIA

Check number of dives and count depth meters. As a beginner, i would stay conservative around 100 depth meters daily. If you are pushing for PB, it is normal to be exhausted. It depends on how old are you, you diet and how good you regenerate. Training wise, for recovery it is better to do 1 session each other day than 2 sessions in one day, more or less the same as in gym. But i understand the fact that travelling time can make this scenario impossible.

If you need to push for PB, it is like intensity training, it does not work well with volume training. Doing both on same day is quite exhausting. Something like 2 warmup dives, then 2 PB attempts and out of water is quite conservative. Then if you feel, second session just do the fun dives to relax, work on you body position, equalization but avoid PB like depths.

Watch for hydration (around 2.5l/day in warm climate), diet and Covid :).
