I have found something wrong and write with being young over the past few days. Wrong - I stayed up til maybe 12am two nights in a row. The past three days, I have laid down at about 10pm but sat there WIDE awake until at least 12:30am. How can this happen so quickly? Does my body know I don't have school tomorrow or did I really adapt to changing my sleeping patterns 3 hours different a day that quickly? All I know for sure is, sleeping 10 hours a night for a week straight makes you feel so much better, no matter at what time. Write - Also on the adaptation theme, I started to do some more core work so I won't have to pull out of half my races next year due to back pain. The plan is to start 10 reps x 1 set and work your way up to 20 reps x 2 sets for maximum ab-ability. The first workout I did, I warmed up a little with a walk on the treadmill and was crying-for-mom-suffering by the end. The second time I completed the workout, I warmed up a little more with some very light stretching, but I did 50% more workload, and can barely feel the effort sitting here 6 hours later. That is a good sign. It felt 50% better during, too.
