Running and Not Sleeping

I went running yesterday at 5:30.

I thought I might die. 5:30 PM, in June, in FLORIDA, is dumb. Even if it was just 30 minutes... I slogged through it. I think I wasn't even running in parts... just kind of bouncing in place with cement in my legs.

I got a copy of the Full training schedule as we do have people on the team training for a Full marathon.

My constant thought? "Thank God it's not me..." Good Lord... I'm so glad I'm training only for a Half.

Next week I up my daily run to 36 min max. They'll be at close to an hour for the Full. I'll still have three days off... they'll only have two.

My Saturday training in mid July is 1 hour, 40 min. They'll be at 2 hour 40 min. Easy.

It was the daily long long pounding that did me in. I do not miss it... in particular in this heat.

Meanwhile, I awoke at 2:20 this morning, bolt right up, trying to convince myself that I wasn't supposed to get up, I could wait until 7:30.

As I was getting ready for work my husband said, "You don't look like you slept well."

I replied, "I was up at 2:20 in a panic that I had to get up. I spent too much time trying to convince myself that it was OK to go back to sleep."

He said, "This happens to you. Over the years, how many times have I found you wandering the house or sitting up in bed at some weird hour in the morning, having to convince you to go back to sleep?"

Does this happen to anyone else?

I sort of do that...when I have to be up, I'll wake up several times in the night, staring at the alarm clock to see if I set it. Then stumble over to make sure it's set to the right time. And then I can't get back to sleep because I start thinking of the agenda for the day.

Happens to me all the time. I set an alarm clock as a backup, but I'm usually up at least 30-60 minutes earlier than I need to be.

Or I'll wake up in the middle of the night for no apparent reason or need. I'll end up reading or eating or doing chores until I get sleepy enough to hit the rack again.

If I have to be up, I usually will wake up about a half an hour to 45 minutes before the alarm goes off. Not enough time to fall back to sleep, but enough time to be pissed about missing out on it!

Usually, once I'm asleep, I stay that way unless I have to go pee in the middle of the night (quite often) and then can go right back to sleep. My problem lately is convincing my body to wind down to the point where it will go to bed at a decent hour. I keep finding lame excuses to stay up.

Yep. Been my lot in life for the past 15 years.....you can always call me next time it happens. You KNOW I'll be awake!

I always have a hard time sleeping....especially when I know that I have to get up at a specific time. But then, when the alarm clock goes off..Boom! Like Pavlog's dogs, I instantly get super sleepy and have to drag myself out of bed and into wakefulness. This means I usually hit the snooze button about 18 times!

I've often wondered if I just set the alarm for the middle of the night, I might actually get more sleep, since that seems to be a trigger.

I do not know whether the speed is also a problem, there is always some problems, but this game is really good, I like it very much, pictures are so beautiful, I have a website.
