I like to sleep, a lot. This summer was wonderful on the sleep-front. I got a glorious 8 or more hours every single night. And then school started last week, and I got a mere 6 or 6.5 hours of sleep.
Then, I woke up with cold-like symptoms on Sunday morning, which made for an extremely hard 12-mile cut-back week run. Not the type of run I really wanted to have prior to my upcoming half marathon on Labor Day. However, it is what it is. I've got a good feeling about my upcoming half, but know that I need to be healthy on race day to achieve my goals.
This means, I need to get more sleep. Resting more will help me overcome whatever ailment my body is currently fighting quicker. Plus, I'm extremely tired. I didn't get to sleep in one day this weekend, although it was my own choice (racing a 5k on Saturday and marathon training on Sunday).
Although it is 8:02 right now, I can honestly say that I am tired. And I'm going to bed.
