Rest and recovery is great when you can sleep. Alas, without good quality sleep it can be hard to convince the body to do anything even remotely taxing. I had a similar problem at this time last year with bad sleep issues. That waking up after only a few hours and not being able to get back to sleep insomnia :-/. Drugs can only help so much. There is a bit on the mind at present (but good stuff!), so switching it off once it wakes up in those wee hours can be quite the challenge! C'est la vie. I know that it will eventually settle down again, in the mean time it means just rolling with the punches. The ACTVAC handicap was today and I had a horrid run, I took some walk breaks from the 5 km mark. Tiredness was mostly due to being really sleep deprived, but I also did a double workout yesterday, a 10 km run in the morning and a MTB ride in the afternoon that involved more hills than I was expecting. A good thing the company and post-ride coffee were good :-). I will have to take it easy this week in the hope that I will be able to push myself all the way around the Women and Girls Fun Run 5 km course next Sunday.
In the meantime, I expect to be picking up a used version of this sexy FZ6R during the week. If I can't run with speed, at least I can ride with it :-). Vroom vroom.
