That's a pretty good summary but I don't know how the author is determining what true overtraining is, it is multifaceted and there is a large subjective component to it, there are markers but in the same way there are markers with depression.. the depression analogy is a good one. Chronic fatigue syndrome can result, it's all part of the same continuum. Yeah he'll be overreaching if he stops and rests now, if he doesn't rest he's continuing to be overtrained.
