Parents running on little quality sleep: What do feel like after a hard workout?

I’m interested to know other parents feel like after a hard workout. I’ve had to dial back my training considerably because otherwise I’m a grumpy tired non-patient dad and husband. I used to feel pretty invigorated after a workout - and I still do for about an hour - but then whoa - watch out. I’m feeling like a strung out junkie. I need to workout - I need my fix -> but I think it’s doing more harm than good right now. I used to be able to get in 3 solid workouts a week, but now I can only do 2 x 30min at 60% + 1 x 60min at good gas. And for the 60 min - I have to time it a little before I go to bed - otherwise it’s no good with the fam.
