That was weird

If you've ever even met me you've probably figured out that I don't sleep much. I can carry on with what sounds like not a lot of sleep for quite a while, but it does catch up with me now and then. Yesterday I pulled a marathon day where I got up at 4 to go to a teammate's house for a spin and CX Worlds viewing party. Who could say no to a trainer workout with company while watching the best of the best and chasing it with beer and waffles? Anywho... by late afternoon I was pretty beat, but hung in there until maybe 9:30. This morning I got up at 4 (typical for work day) and I just could. not. wake. up. On the drive to work I almost turned around 3 times because I felt like I was not all that safe to be driving. Chugging my first cup of joe wasn't helping. 2 more cups when I got to work and there was still nothing firing. I found myself apologizing to everyone because I was being a grouchy jerk and I just generally avoided people. Finally around 11:30 I just admitted I was just wasting the electricity to light my office and went home. I basically went right to bed and slept for the better part of 4 hours. I think that did the trick, but I'm still trying to get over the groggy daytime sleeping feeling. Definitely seem more coherent. We'll see how it goes when the kid circus starts in a little while.

cut out all caffeine - you'll actually realize when you are hitting a wall before you actually hit it.

I probably sleep more than you but i'm sleeping less than I did and sleeping much better than when i was loading up with coffee daily.


and 1.5 years later i'm back to enjoying the occasional macchiato/espresso

I was down Bikeworks Saturday and Joe said him and his mechanic threw their names in for the hell of it because there Cervelo rep had talked it all up. They don't even race much. They both got in, the Cervelo guy didn't.

Just ride D2R2 with us and be happy. Watch out for low-hanging branches.
