Good to workout early again. I always feel so good about the day when I get that workout done early. Sleep is becoming a slight concern again. I keep waking and noticed that my apnea was over 1. Usually it’s below 0.5. I’m also finding that I prefer to be on my side more. I really should investigate getting a cloth protector because that other mast was really comfortable. It could be nostalgia because I slept so well those first couple of weeks. I feel rested when I wake up, but its hard to tell because I’m generally tired when I wake but feel great after a workout. The real clues come with afternoon fatigue which seems to have disappeared. I will keep an eye on it this week (especially the early mornings) to see how it translates. Hopefully it will be fine. That other mask scares me because I still have a red mark from using it.
Cramping is an issue. My back was really under pressure during this mornings run. I was able to persevere, but goodness I hope it’s not a long term thing. Tomorrow I’ll try some Taurine to see if it helps alleviate the pressure. Drinking lots of water is another goal to help with the cramps too.
Things are starting to lighten up on the workload front too. I’m able to catch a breath and focus in on the class work. I read an interesting quite from BJ Miller yesterday about life - “Work hard at the playfulness and relaxation in life.” I like that idea because we focus so much on making life happen when in fact we need to sometimes appreciate the small ‘snowball’ moments.
