Today was a bit chilly outside and I just wanted to run on the treadmill as I was feeling a bit tired due to my 4th consecutive night of 3rd shift work. I felt pretty good until a runner passed me on the virtual path and made me mad. I have no idea why, but I decided to pick up my pace and then I started to feel a strain on my right hamstring and glute. Must resist such silly ego trips as I’m still not giving myself enough easy days to heal. I was able to get a good stretch and cool down. I resisted the urge to do weight training as I had to get home and try to get a few hours of sleep.
I’m really needing to make sleep my number 1 focus. It is hard as I seem to have way too much to do during the day to get anywhere near 8 hours of sleep. As it is, I was able to get a few hours of sleep today. My sleeping hours were from 10am to 2:30pm and 8pm to 10:15pm.
