Sleep
Getting better.  Tired but not sleeping due to personal stress.  Fell asleep in front of TV a couple of times at night.

Recovery
Pretty good.  Felt like a lighter week for me although legs after Wednesday ride were sore and tired.  Legs for Thursday run were heavy and sore but after day off on Saturday my run Sunday was great (for a treadmill).

Mood
A bit down due to personal stress but getting better:)

Health
Overall good but watching soreness in legs.  Left achilles is tight in the mornings but seems to loosen up and my left knee has kicked in a couple of complaints.  Right knee also bitching a bit, would like a cortisone shot but I have resisted thus far.....

Comments
Felt like it was an "off" week but I had a couple of decent efforts in there.  I haven't been in the game mentally and am looking forward to getting back on the bandwagon, there will be a couple of good mental tests for me this week.
