Something to ponder...

How odd that just four weeks ago, the idea of running 13 miles was no big deal.

I'm sooooo tired!!!

Do not fret, my pets, I am still working on those Goofy race reports. BUT in the meantime... here's a random topic.

It has now officially been three weeks since the Goofy challenge. From an exercise perspective, I've done NOTHING since then. And to be honest, it's been quite nice. I hope I don't alienate you guys, but I'm just not one of those people that need to run or work out all the time. I'm quite content being a couch potato. I'll be out there again soon enough but for now I'm just enjoying activities other than spending hours pounding the payment.

But here's the thing... lately, I have been soooooo tired. Ridiculously tired. I typically don't nap but there have been times recently when I've desperately wanted one. I'm ashamed to say I missed out on hanging out with friends one evening because I literally slept through it. And I was in a deep sleep, too - when I woke up, I could barely move. I sleep the same hours so what's the deal?

Well my friend pointed out that it's probably because I haven't been working out. And initially I thought that was weird since I know I get tired from working out. But then I read somewhere that you have a better quality of sleep when you exercise, i.e. deeper sleep, etc and that's why you end up being more well-rested.

Which means I better get out there again because Starbucks is just not doing the trick for this sleepy-head.

Anyone else have a similar experience?

P.S. I also suspect some of my sleepiness can be due to excessive cupcake consumption. ;)
