City of Darkness

2007_Winter_Break 122I can’t seem to get used to the dark in Seattle. I was fine before I left, but after a month of 11 hour days in Hawaii I’m having a rough time getting my sleep back on schedule. I would have thought the extra dark hours would have me sleeping a ton, but instead I’m finding myself unable to sleep more than five or six hours a night. After a 5am track workout today, I’m hoping I can crash early and sleep a solid ten hours tonight. It’s catchup rest, but I’m going to try to make a habit of it. Better to be over rested than under rested.

I’m getting stoked to start racing again, and it’s a good thing I can get my feet wet (literally)next weekend in Brazil. Check out Loren’s latest post if you want to get psyched up.

  1. I am so stoked for you to race again. it is time for me to get psyched as well. Too much pizza and wine in Italy. I can’t wait to hear all about your travels and races this year.

    PS I mentioned you in a recent blog.
