Wow, I must have needed it. I knew I was tired so I went to bed early last night (7:00). I figured I would be able to wake up early on my own, no alarm, and go to the gum before work. I slept solidly through until my alarm went off at 6:30 this morning. I am trying to figure out what is more important for tomorrow, since I am still dragging today. Get up and hit the gym or let myself sleep again? Either way I am planning an early bedtime again for tonight.

    Sometimes are body needs more sleep--take advantage of another good nights sleep. This last time I was sick, Imy body demanded 12 or 13 hours of sleep, get up tired even after all that sleep. Then after about a week I slept a few hours less and woke up fully refreshed ready to go. Hope you get enough sleep.

    What many are unaware of is that our central nervous system is affected from heavy workouts, weight lifting, or other strenuous activities.

Most weight lifters are aware of the need for the body to recover and is the main reason sessions are usually no more than an hour, preferably 45-minutes long (that's with no chatter or social interruptions during the workout).

Rest is critical in muscle recovery. Depending on what your goals are, going to the gym every day may not be helpful, Earl emoticon
