At a certain point, you just get up.

JayZ was up briefly at 3am. And then, in classic fashion, my head spun with all the things I have to do today and I couldn't. fall. back. asleep.

Ugh.

3:22am.

4:18am.

4:57am.

5:25am.

Sigh.

Rather than lay in bed and be all salty until 6:30, I got up, threw on some clothes, and headed down for my 6 mile tempo run on the dreadmill. BTW--don't watch news channels for more than 5 minutes. I wanted to get caught up on what happened since I went to bed (because I'm that kind of news and politics geek) . They beat the Elliot Spitzer horse OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN. I zoned out and iPod'ed it instead.

6 miles, with 2 at a tempo pace of 7:50. Stretched, showered, made it to school, and now I'm playing the game of "how much can I get done before I crash."

On a second cup of joe, which is rare, but I need to make it until at least 9pm tonight.

Ugh. At least I got my run in, huh?

I really wish I could just sleep like a baby....

Been there. Last week I was sitting at my desk, at work, at 4:30am. Hope the rest of your day goes smoothly, and that you can sleep well tonight.

Oh I do know the feeling. You did So well to get up and run!!! I'm sure that gave you a few extra hours of awake time today. Hope you sleep well tonight.

You could have shoveled snow....
I wish I could stay awake to work out. Either am or pm. Good on you.

This time change has screwed up everybody's internal clocks. But you did the right thing. Getting up and getting a good run in should ensure you get back on track pretty quickly.

You know, I've found the phrase "sleep like a baby" to be a bit misleading...
