    Hi Nathan! I agree with this whole-heartedly. My best runs always come after a few days of great sleep. I aim for 8 hours a night, but it ends up being closer to 7. Funny that you posted this today because last night was my first attempt to go for more so I was in bed at 9:30pm….lights out at 10pm. 7:45…I’m gonna do better tonight!

    I’ve been struggling with peri-menopausal symptoms, and I heard that the supplement Magnesium Glycinate works for this. So I started that…plus L-Glutamine. I have high hopes!

      Stick with it Theresa! More sleep is always a good thing.

  • So true about the need for more sleep for runners. I wrote about this in
    my book, “Run Your Destiny.” I’m expecting my first baby at the end of
    July and won’t be entering any races for a while after.

      That’s probably smart! I ran my first race about a month later, and it went ok, though not as well as it could. Kids are wonderful, but the little ones make it difficult to get out for those early morning runs.
