I didn't get enough sleep last night. I stayed up late reading. I have found though that as I get more active I require more sleep than I used to need. I exhaust myself many days, and a good 9 hours of sleep seems to be necessary. I think this is pretty normal. What about everyone else? How much sleep do you need/get?
I walked and jogged today, but that was the extent of my physical activity. Tomorrow I go to help with harvest early in the morning, then off to the gym for a workout. I am not sure how hard of a workout I will do though in anticipation of the race on Saturday. My running buddies both bailed on my for the race, so I will be running it alone. I am still going to try my best, but I work harder when I have company, someone to compete against. I know there will be plenty of other people running, but it isn't the same. If I can do better than 40 minutes I will be more than happy with my effort.
The weather is finally cooling off a little, and it actually rained for a little while today, which made me happy. It might be raining in the morning (50% chance), which doesn't make me as happy, but I show up to help with harvest rain or shine, just like I run... rain or shine.
