When I went to the GP, she knows my history and how much I train etc, so she prescribed me some light sleeping pills – just in case it continued.
I put other things in place, like turning off electronics and winding down, so didn’t need to use the pills, but I still had them in case I needed them. They’re not handed out often, so I appreciated her giving me them. I can imagine they’ll sit in my pill box and never be used. But you never know.
I still seem to be waking at 4am, but I’ve less thoughts rushing into my head and am getting back to sleep for some more zeds. 🙂 I was perhaps worrying over nothing, 4 hours this, 5 hours that… Worry worry worry about nothing, when actually I felt fine.
Speedwork and strength on Sunday rendered my legs more or less useless, and I’m just starting to feel ok today. I lay in just to make sure today… so FOUR days rest. Lol. Hills avoided, long run avoided. Tut tut. There’s always next week!
Two weeks to the Skye half marathon, so running will become my focus for now. 🙂
