Abstract: The purpose of this exploratory study was to determine if psychological and physiological responses during a period of normal baseline training are similar to psychological and physiological responses during a period of increased training conducted at the same intensity as the baseline training. Eleven moderately trained male and female endurance runners participated in the study. During the first week of training, baseline training week, runners ran their average weekly distance over five consecutive days. During the second week of training, increased training week, runners ran 1.5 times their average weekly distance, over five consecutive days. Runs were conducted between 70 - 75% maximal aerobic capacity each week. Psychological measures were collected prior to, during, and after each run and physiological measures were collected twice each run.
