i can't seem to catch a break. i can't manage a solid night's sleep. strange dreams, waking up in the middle of the night over and over. i'd love to blame it on outside influence, but i'm pretty much comatose when i fall asleep. something just occurred to me, a car alarm did wake me up last night at 2, but i fell right back asleep. it was waking up at 3:30 that kept me awake for at least 15 minutes. then again at 5.

what's causing this? i don't drink caffeine. i rarely booze anymore. i'm exerting myself to the point of exhaustion when i run or climb or hike. i'm not waking up sneezing or congested or cold or hot. my prostate's still young enough that i can sleep through the night. is it stress? am i doing too much each day, longing for lazy florida days? or am i actually doing too little and not as tired as i feel?

First you need new running shoes, trust me I am a runner and having good shoes is a must so invest in some new balance sneakers my personal favorite, lol. Second you are old so am I lol but its ok. I would try and schedule your work outs by the way you feel. If your too tired walk instead of run or hit the bicycle machines at the gym it will mix things up. I'd say swim but I dont know if you have access to a pool =)

You had me at Merlot. said...

Quit teaching or get used to sleepless nights. You got a kid you are concerned about? I lost alot of sleep of that kinda thing.
