This weekend I fully absorbed this quote: A calorie deficit is a recovery deficit. While this is 100% true, I shall take the liberty of modifying this to better suit my own major obstacle: A sleep deficit is a recovery deficit.

My long trail run today was cut in half and involved far more walking than planned. I'm not too concerned that this is a sign I'll tank this weekend at the Train & Stay. However, I am certain that not getting enough sleep will cause me to tank. But getting enough sleep during a shortened close week is one fuck of a massive challenge.

The solution:
-Take away the two-a-day workouts, thus no more running the rest of the week.
-Get in the shower at 8pm every night. No exceptions. This leads to a 9pm bedtime, which gives me 8 hours in bed, since I'm always up at 5am these days.
-Aim to sleep in later on Thursday & Friday.
-Be more productive at work (read: stop fucking off) so that sleeping in is possible.
-Don't worry about calories. Keep the fucking nuts & nut butters out of the house, and maintenance will take care of itself.
