Oh, thank goodness it is Friday. It has been a long long week. The exciting thing is, Next week, I only work 3 days, then I have 5 glorious days off. Yay! I have been so drained this week. Difficulites falling asleep every night, so I am popping sleeping pills to get to sleep, so the mornings are even more difficult, because I have such a hard time getting up and going. I can't figure out what my sleep problem is, except that maybe too much that possible? Tuesday night, I ran 10 miles....just to see if I good to do it. And I did, in 1 hr and 43 minutes...I was smoking...surprisingly, I was not the least bit sore the next day. But, getting to sleep, poses a problem. I usually work out late in the evening, finishing up my work out around 8, I guess the endorphins just don't want to stop and it won't let my brain shut down to go to sleep. Last night, I went to the gym, ran 4 miles, did upper body (shoulders, back, arms, abs) and needless to say, once again, I had to take a couple tylenol p.m.s to get to sleep, so I overslept this morning. It was such a rush to get to work on time.

5 o'clock can't get here soon enough. I have no kiddies this weekend, so I am planning on going for a run after work, then relaxing, cooking a simple dinner for the hubby and I, drinking some wine, reading and watching some movies/tv, maybe if I feel motivated enough, throw in a little housework.

Happy Friday everyone!

FYI exercise before bedtime can inhibit sleep. I would adjust your routine so you can knock off the sleeping pills.
