So, I ran 15 miles today on 3 hours of sleep. I took an ice bath, just to see if the experience lived up to the hype. All I can say right now is that the water was cold. I’ll see if there is a difference when I go to run my 7 to 8 mile pace run Monday.
After that experience I tried to take a long nap. Didn’t happen. I slept maybe 45 minutes and then woke up. The goal is to sleep 3 to 4 hours before heading into work for a 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. shift. There was a time I could sleep forever. I’m not wired like that anymore. What’s the saying? Sleep when your dead.
Anyway, I finally hopped out of bed when I realized there were no more z’s in my immediate future and decided to shower with warm water, soap and all that.
The day’s pretty grey. The quality of light reflecting off my neighbor’s siding and coming in my bathroom window caught my eye since the shower curtain was open. I decided to make this my photo for March 31, 2012.
Below you’ll find the same picture above, edited in black and white, along with a close up looking out my window.
