I had a terrible night's sleep. I went to bed around 9pm, but woke up at 11:42pm and could not get back to sleep. At 12:30am, I went out to the family room and turned on the TV which usually puts me right to sleep, but at 1:30am I moved from the recliner to the couch in the hopes that my horizontal position would finally put me out of my misery. I eventually did fall back to sleep, but was up again at 3:45am. At that point, I settled on just getting up and starting my day.
My workout went pretty well. I ran my first 200yd sprint in 33+ seconds, nearly a whole second faster than my previous best. My pull ups did not go great, but I still did 2 in a row and 4 overall. I did pump out 8 dips in a row on my first set; I was very happy with that.
Now I have had meetings all morning long, an on-line tutorial in a few minutes, and guests coming over tonight. I need a freaking nap!
I know full well why I had trouble sleeping. I have a couple of things going on at work that have me thinking and strategizing. I am concerned about my son's upcoming surgery and more specifically his recovery. And, in general, I just have a lot on my mind. But now that I am at work (don't worry, I blog over my lunch hour) and supposed to be taking care of business, I really just want to lay down for a few hours. My workout provided me with some energy early on in the day, but that has worn off. I sure hope I can get some sleep tonight!
