Training Journal 12/3-12/9

Monday, December 3-Sunday, December 9, 2012:  This week ended up being a recovery week due to pain from before TNF50 miler (worse after the race, of course) and recovery from that race as well as my lack of time to run due to helping race direct the Deception Pass 25/50k.  Busy and stressful week, that doesn't seem to be getting any less stressful.  Between injury issues, my coach insisting I see a doctor before we proceed with our training schedule, too much work that needs to get done and beaucoup financial obligations I have been stretched thin.  Being a running bum is hard work folks!  Hold on a minute, I think a big scream might help relieve some tension AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
