Sorry for not posting last night — I was running around this crazy city until late, and by the time I got back to the apartment the last thing I wanted to do was try to be witty.
But now I’m back!
So I have a confession: I do not sleep enough. I pride myself on living an active, healthy lifestyle. But a major component to being healthy is getting enough sleep.
Last night I didn’t get to sleep until 1:30 am.
Then I woke up at 5:30 am.
Silly, really. To be honest, I’ve never been the kind of person who needs very much sleep. I’m a natural morning person and my body doesn’t always feel the difference between 8 hours and 5 hours of rest. But moving forward, I want to make sleep as much of a priority as running and working.
When I woke up, this is how I felt:
As I got myself ready, I tried to put on a happy face.
I brushed my teeth, got dressed, did my ab routine and then hit the streets for a 4-mile run.
Amazingly, once I started running I didn’t feel tired. I maintained a relaxed pace and loved that there were a ton of other runners out this morning.
Of course, the sights were impressive as always.
I even ran alongside this little guy for a while (though I feared he was going to bite my ankles)…
By the time I was finished running, I felt wide awake.
Now I’m rushing a bit to get out the door because I have to get Remicade today before I go to work. Click here to learn what the heck I’m talking about.
I WANT TO KNOW: How much sleep do you get each night? Do you make sleep a priority or is it an afterthought?
