What a Difference 1 Hour Makes
My alarm went off the morning, telling me it was time to get up and do my weights. I was dead tired and still sore. Needless to say, I rolled over and went back to sleep for an extra hour. Normally, I would feel guilty and beat myself up all day for being "lazy." However, when I got up (without an alarm), I felt rested and energetic. It was like I had a power nap. That was the difference between 7 hours of sleep and 8. Plus, I slept like a baby in that final hour. It felt so good. I feel so energized and positive today, I feel like my body is rewarding me for training "smart" and not just focusing on volume. I like the not-feeling-guilty thing.
