Training Journal 4/8-4/14

Monday, April 8-Sunday, April 14, 2013: This week more than ever marked my understanding that I need some time off and that I should have taken more time off after HURT100 in January.  I have been researching over training syndrome and I feel that this is the most likely cause of my issues as of late.  Plus, time off means I am getting a lot of stuff done that I have been needing to get done around the house and at work.  Like getting my new office in order.
