I tend to survive on this but don't necessarily think it allows me to thrive. Keep in mind, on Friday and Saturday nights I get a bit more sleep since I don't have to get up so early to run before work. All that said and done, I fall below the recommendation of 8 hours of sleep each night. Now don't get me wrong, I don't beat myself up over it since I am not dragging all day. The only time I feel I need more sleep is if my body needs extra healing time due to fighting an infection or healing an injury. Magic happens at night!
I iced myself last night. I thought about how I was holding my body. And I slept to give those muscles a little extra love. And this morning I am feeling so much better! It is amazing the improvements and differences I have noticed just since Monday afternoon. I go back tomorrow for another check to see if the hip is being good and staying in place and to see how my neck is doing. We are troubleshooting my daily headaches as well. BTW, no headaches for the past couple of days.
Besides doing weird things, icing, and sleeping I hope to have some good running time this weekend. Oh yeah....and cleaning the house from top to bottom since my mom is coming next Tuesday!!!!
