Yet Still I Learn

Last night when I went to bed I knew I was not going to swim this morning. I was feeling fatigued and opted for a little extra sleep. Even after eight hours of sleep, I woke this morning wishing I could go back to bed. I do not hurt, my body temperature is normal, andContinue reading “Yet Still I Learn”

Sleep is Definitely Not Overrated

Who ever said “sleep is overrated” most definitely was not an endurance athlete. Last night I was sound asleep by 9:30, Molly the kitty was on the other side of my closed bedroom door, and I slept sound until 4:30 this morning. It was seven hours of bliss.

Work, family, friends, social, exercise, and the delicate mind/body/soul balance. Like the differing political views, so too are differing ideas of balance in life. Unlike politics, itContinue reading “Finding Balance”

Zzzzzz Or Lack There Of

I have written before on the importance of sleep. My inspiration to write on sleep comes when I suffer from deprivation of it, such as today. Last night I had the opportunity to have dinner with a new friend and I was out later than usual for a week night. Here comes the pathetic partContinue reading “Zzzzzz Or Lack There Of”
