Potentiation

     I took yesterday off to get the roof on my shed expansion. Then this morning I woke up at 1:56am and waited, as usual, for the sun to come up so I could run. I had loosely planned on a speed day but knew immediately it wasn't going to happen, so I flexed and made it an activation day. 3 X 100 and I couldn't break 13" which shows my fatigue. I'm fairly confident I'll feel good tomorrow, if I do then I'll repeat the Sanya workout and shoot for 10 X 200 in 30" on 2:00 rest and see if I can fail less than last time.

How many hours of sleep do you get? I thought I was bad waking at 4:30-5am no matter how late I go to sleep, but 2am is another level

I worry that it's not enough but the problem, if you will, is that I feel great and my recovery is excellent. On paper it's not enough but if I listen to my body and mind then I think it's enough. I'm always in bed by 8:30 and will read until ~9. Then I'm typically up by 3:00am. I wake up completely ready to go and couldn't go back to sleep if I wanted to. So that's 6 hours which isn't bad.
