I have, without fail, vomited after every single rowing race or extreme test I have performed in the last two years...

Well, that's a different situation and how often would that be though? I doubt you push yourself to that extreme every single workout?

Well, I train 15 times a week:
3 morning runs
5 afternoon rows on the water
4 indoor training sessions
3 evening weights sessions
In the summer we compete weekly, in the winter perhaps once a month.

Oops, missed the whole point of the post...
Most of the water and ergometer training is steady-state; no lactic acid buildup, just a steady, draining effort. We do maybe 3 or 4 really intense sessions a week (interval training, sprints, plyometrics or something like that). I get a bit nauseous during those sometimes; it's good, it shows me I'm working in the right 'zone'. The races (and ergometer tests) are proper maximal efforts (as in, rolling on the floor puking and unable to walk maximal!).

That's what I was getting at, I doubt someone could put in maximal effort every single workout and be able to sustain that. And even if they were able to, you'd probably notice a performance drop instead of an increase!

I just wish I had enough time for that many workouts in a week.

5:00am Wake up
5:45am Leave for Work
6:30am Get to work and Start
3:00pm Get off work and head home
4:00pm Get home and get daughter from bus
5:30pm Finished her homework and house duties
6:00pm Dinner

Now if I am lucky I can get to the gym about 5:30pm when the soon to be wife gets home and we can get an hour to hour and a half workout, and it pushes the rest of the evening back.

Weekends I try to get a workout in, in the morning before the kiddo wakes up, and then we try and get to the pool at the gym at least one time on the weekend.

I have however said to wife and kiddo that I will be going to the gym every night between now and the wedding at the end of August.

Yup, the travel time is the price I pay to live out of the city and in the country where I can see the stars at night (when its not raining so like 2 nights a year lol), I don’t hear sirens all night long or traffic. My neighbor is like a mile away :) On the up side a walk around the block is 5 miles.

Yeah, you need time to recover properly too. You damage your tissues during a workout, then they heal; in fact, they heal stronger than they were to begin with. This is called overcompensation. However, if you don't leave enough time to recover between sessions, the tissues don't reach their original state and you end up in a downward spiral of decreasing performance, chronic pain and missed goals. This is failing adaptation, aka overtraining (or as some prefer, 'under-recovery').
I try to keep in shape - the nice thing about rowing is that you can eat pretty much whatever you want and not get fat ;) I am trying to cut a bit of weight though; I'm aiming to compete as a lightweight at uni, so I need to drop about 8 kilos. Should be doable, since I still have my 'winter coat'! :D

Yup part of the reason I am going to see a trainer to help me get on a weekly cycle, and to figure out which days to work what groups :) Just changing my eating habits have helped and I no longer stay up pat 10pm on a week night lol, most nights I am sleeping on the couch by 9.

Yup flipping cars when I am not driving is very much a workout, however I am taking the summer off from toy cars to work on my photography some more and give more time to boating.
