I just did something today I haven't done in months!

(other than post on this blog)

I completed workouts on back to back days. AND, today I even did a bit of a double. Yesterday I swam 1400 yds, today I ran/walked 3.5 miles. After my run, I managed 30 minutes of core work.

I'm hoping to get on my bike tomorrow, and can't think why I wouldn't.

So, hello, friends, I am slowly making my way back to "normalcy." The sleeping *still* isn't great, and from that, so much else flows. I saw a specialist (finally) last week, and I'm trying to improve my "sleep hygiene" which essentially means a very strick sleeping schedule, no naps so as to consolidate sleep, no caffeine at all, no cat in the bed, no water 4 hours befor bed, no reading in bed, and a few other tips and tricks. I'm logging my sleep daily, and on a scale of A-E, A being the best, this week has been mixed. I had 1 A day, 1 B day, 3 Ds, and 2 Es. Six hours of sleep is still about the most I'm getting, when I was used to 7.5. I've stopped taking any sleep meds so I'm not groggy in the morning anymore, but the deficit definitely catches up with my by the end of the week.

Which is why today feels like a victory!

As my friend LBTEPA says, more anon, chicadees.
