Tired, Sore and Beat Up

I ended March feeling very tired, sore and beat up. I think I over did the training a bit.. I have this problem with moderation.. always have and I assume always will. I was just shy of 200 miles for the month (which is both quite a bit and not very much at the same time) but my biggest month before March, I had only run 120 miles.. so it might have been too big of a jump for my body. It's hard to remember that I have to build up gradually, I want it all NOW! I took yesterday off and I'm taking today off too, and next week I'll start tapering. I would really like to do well at Free State (well, meaning finish in a respectable time) so it's time to let the body start recovering... after Brew to Brew of course. I'm hoping for half way decent weather on Sunday.. keep your fingers crossed!

Took a bunch of pictures from the run on Saturday, there was an adventure race going on at the same time, so there was quite a few people on the trails, and we got to play with the boats on the beach, and Sophia stopped for a bit of yoga on the trail.
