    my brain froze or went into overdrive

    Russell didn’t try to push me. I think he had other things on his mind, like able-bodied athletes with serious training schedules. I kept going to training a couple of times a week, mostly just to keep Mum off my back. It felt good to stretch and do strength exercises, but if I ever tried to push a bit harder, my brain froze or went into overdrive. I could do most of my bar routine – except for the fl yaway – but like Samantha said, it all had a wait-and-see feel about it, as though I was treading water. Well, more like trying to swim in quicksand.

    my brain froze or went into overdrive.??

    Your brain went into overdrive due to excessive concentration and was not succumbed to freezing because there was no cause for the brain to freeze (To give pain) which is mostly inflicted by taking too much of cold food like ice cream or cold beverage.

    My brain froze = stopped working

    went into overdrive = began working at high-speed

    Anglika,

    You mean "I stopped working" and "I began working at high-speed"

    or

    "My brain stopped working" and "My brain began working at high-speed"

    ??

    "my brain froze"
    "my brain went into overdrive"

    The activity was carried out in such a way that either the brain stopped processing information or that it reacted to the physical activity by working very fast so that ideas/thoughts came very quickly one on top of another.
