Half-Marathon Prep: Slept 11 hours
Sunday, February 10, 2013
In my last blog I whined about how I was getting sick and joked that instead of my scheduled 11-mile run I ought to sleep for 11 hours.
It turns out I did just that last night/this morning (plus two naps during the day Saturday). It did wonders. Yesterday I had an achy head and periodic chills. Went out and ate hot & sour soup for dinner - right on target! - and then retired while the movie "Batman: The Dark Knight Rises" echoed from downstairs (teen daughter was determined to watch it. Lots of shouting except when there was lots of shooting as far as I could tell by the soundtrack). Listened to a little basketball and jazz while finishing a good book, then fell asleep. Today no chills, no headache, no sore throat, and I even have some energy.
Life lesson: get enough sleep!
