Yesterday, I took an unplanned day off. I've been having horrible trouble sleeping. I didn't get to bed until 3:00 a.m. Monday, and didn't fall asleep until 5:00. And I have no idea why! But since Sunday is my normal day off and I did a 10 K run, I decided it would be okay to take Monday off, which meant skipping Masters swim. My eating wasn't particularly good, and that's at least partly because I have so little food. I mean, alfalfa sprout sandwich. Good Lord. Time to get to the grocery store.
It's important to get enough sleep, as an athlete especially, and it's something I'm very concerned about. Sleeping is like eating and drinking water; it's absolutely necessary to get those things in order for your body to recover. And so it's very frustrating when I don't get enough sleep, and I'm eager to figure out what it is that's keeping me awake at night.
