don’t know when I am sleeping, don’t know when I’m awake

Another run-mute today. I was out the door at 7 and just made it in time– I was still catching my breath when the train pulled up. 3.08mi in 38:41– I was feeling a bit sluggish and sore this morning, but having to get there on time made for decent motivation to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

Tomorrow’s supposed to be a rest day. I need a rest day. However, Friday calls for 3 miles fast and Saturday for 5 miles, and I’m going to be busy sunup to sundown all weekend. I could move the schedule so I do the 3 miler tomorrow and the 5 on Friday and call the weekend "rest" (despite it not even being remotely restful).

I’ve been fighting with sleep lately (again). On Monday night I swore I was tossing and turning until 1am, at which point I decided to stop waking my husband up and moved to the spare room where I slept soundly. However, my sleep trackers show that I was asleep for a good chunk of that time. Apparently there’s a thing called Sleep State Misperception where you’re certain that you’re awake but you’re not. Probable cause? Anxiety about sleep. Great. I’d probably be sleeping much better if I stop tracking it…

    i sometimes have a night of sleeplessness too… it always baffles me, because i can be super exhausted but still unable to drift off to sleep.
