Is it possible that I am overtraining?

I am currently lifting 4 days a week, M,T, TH, F, about 2 hours per session. Am I overtraining? My nutrition and sleep are both excellent, but I worry that I may be doing too much in the gym itself. For example, I spend about an hour twice a week performing supersets of a bicep workout, followed by a tricep workout, and switching among 4-5 lifts for each of those parts. I usually feel pretty fresh going into each workout, but I still worry that I won't be making gains if I'm training too much.
