I have always had this cyclical problem with sleep/insomnia. I blamed it on being a night owl when I was younger and even took ambien when it got really bad. Not anymore though. I may work in clinical research but I'm not a huge fan of taking meds or even going to the doctor.An Anyways, lately no matter how tired I am bedtime doesn't even happen before 1:00 a.m. I could be exhausted all day then 10 p.m. hits and I "wake" up. Plus I'm a very light sleeper. Last night for whatever reason (weird dreams, the crazy storms, insomnia) I was up every 45 minutes after not being able to fall asleep until nearly 3 a.m. I am exhausted and sporting some awesome lack of sleep black eyes. I hope I get over this soon. Soon as in before Monday, since I have a 6 a.m flight to Laguardia. Wishful thinking?
Cross-training on the bike and weights yesterday. Today there are intense thunderstorms in the area. Perfect to take a rest day! I'm hoping for a long run of 12-13 this weekend.
