Who knows a sure-fire method to sleep? I’m struggling!

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz the last two days I have been going to bed and then still being awake come stupid-o’clock in the morning!  I’d almost have been as good staying up all night. 😦

Tonight, I actually feel tired while writing, so it will be short and sweet.

Running has been going super, 21min for my 3miles both yesterday and today, feeling really easy, and moving well.  I’m even breaking strava records on my route, so thinking it’s time to start expanding my net of where I run, so I can be the Strava king of running around my area.  Everyone needs a goal right??

Yesterday a few of us viewed a great venue for our graduation ball, a few viewed one today, I’m at another tomorrow, and there are two others in the running as well.  It’s exciting doing the background work for our final ever University shindig!!

I’ve had a new clinical and sports biomechanics class started too, and they have already given us a 5000 word essay on measuring devices for research studies into biomechanics……that’s a lot of words for not a lot of credits!  plus there will be another 5000word essay due for week 8. 😦

Today was also velodrome day, and we were doing some training on team pursuit, therefore it was all about staying together as a team of 4, and switching at the bends.  It’s great fun, and a couple of the guys in our group weren’t as strong, so was well within my limits which was nice. 🙂

Anyway, my bed is calling, and a big day ahead tomorrow, so I will see you all soon!! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Early Morning Assault…..that’s what the pavement got, not me!

WAKE UUUUPPPPPP!!!!  That’s what I did this morning!  I set my alarm for 6:15, and rolled out of bed not long after 6:30 and headed for my 3mile run (which is not 3miles, as I added a lap round my cul-de-sac which brought the run up from 2.8miles).

Morning runs are the bain/bane of my life (again, I’m not sure which spelling is correct, so I have given both!) as I just never feel awake enough.  It’s not a problem when you’re fit, because you just get on with it, but when you’re not, you just wanna walk home after half a mile, because your body wants to sleep.  But I got round the run in just under 22mins (morning runs are always a bit slower if you’ve only just rolled out of bed, so I don’t worry what speed they are….it would be a different story if I’d been up for an hour or two, and had some coffee and toast though).

Next up, shower and change, plus some juice, before getting on the bike and cycling to uni. Today was hand-in day for CAED systems, and I still had to print my individual stuff, plus finish my part of the group work and help put it together.  

One bonus…the uni has a starbucks the cafe right across from our building, so I got myself a Latte and an Oats-So-Simple porridge, and that fuelled me till lunch time.

We got everything done, and it was all handed in in time, so that’s one thing checked off my to do list, only two more for this week, and then it’s big work on my individual design project for the hand in on the 30th of January……arrrggghhhhh

So, that’s me off to bed again…another early day tomorrow is on the cards, so sleep is crucial until my body gets used to it’s routine.

Tune intomorrow to find out how riveting it will be…..same bat-time…..same bat-channel. 😉

Sunday = Rest Day?? NAAAHHHHHH!!

So I woke sharp to my alarm, and proceeded to snooze it….yes, laziness still there….but I didn’t snooze it for long, and eventually I was up and getting ready to get out the door for my run.  Managed to go past my 2.1mile turning point, and went to the next main junction, making the run 2.8miles.  

Slowly stepping up the miles is key to staying injury free now, so I won’t be jumping into things willy-nilly.  Felt pretty comfortable running today, and when I got home and looked at my phone, I was shocked to see the average pace was 6:58/mile.  I purposely stayed easy going down the road because i knew I wanted to do the 3mile loop (I’ll have to add a bit on somewhere to actually make it 3 though).  It’s like riding a bike I guess – you’re always a bit rusty after not being on one for a while, but it’s not long before your muscles find that memory of what they used to do, and then it’s just a matter of building the fitness to do it as fast as you want to. 🙂

So once home, I showered, made some porridge, then got my stuff together before jumping on the bike and taking the 4.9mile cycle to uni to work for the day.

Managed to finish off my individual journal review due for tomorrow, and sorted the little errors on my drawings, and by that time it was 7pm….home time.  I still have stuff to do for the group section, but I decided an early night was needed tonight, as I didn’t sleep much last night, and then I’ll set the alarm for 6-6:30 and get myself into Uni for 8am so I can print my stuff, and finish the extra bits needed.  Really shouldn’t have left it this late, but it’s only an elective class, and I just need a pass – oh and the class is boring.  “Computer-Aided Engineering Design Systems”. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

So that’s me logging off for the night, and heading through to bed.  Hope the world is being good out there! 

Until tomorrow night…..so long.
