Sleep concerns

My two-fer workout yesterday didn’t make me really sore (though my delts are definitely in need of a good stretch– swimming sure is effective) but I do feel kind of weary. I suspect I didn’t sleep well (or enough).

I’ve been having a heck of a time falling asleep lately. I’ll toss and turn for an hour before I finally manage to drift off– only to be awoken by my partner’s light snoring.

Honestly, I probably just need to start going to bed earlier. That would solve 85% of it.

Oh right, the workout! It wasn’t anything fancy; I stationary bike’d hard for 20 minutes, then did a bunch of incline situps, bench pushups, cable wood chops, and crunches. (Yep, a core day.)
