A Case of the Grumpies

I've been in a bad mood for the past 2 weeks.  I've been tired.  I've had little to no patience with my kids. I've been yelling...a lot.

It took me until today to realize what the problem is...I have only run once since my 50k which was over 2 weeks ago.

Yes, I know I am in recovery mode, and that is partly why it didn't cross my mind that my grumpiness was stemming from my lack of running. I am taking my recovery very seriously.  Seriously.  As a coach, I know how important it is, and I have not been fooling around with this one.

BUT, it finally hit me today that I have been missing my time on the trails.  I need to get back to my therapy - trail therapy.

Coach...I hope you are reading this!!
