You may be wondering what I am doing awake at 1am the morning after running a 16 miler (ie like less than 12 hours ago)...I, too, am wondering this. I don't know why it is, but I often seem to find myself WIDE AWAKE in the evening after my long runs. My legs may be achey, but my eyes are like this: 00
Even the relatively strong beer (Flying Dog Brewery Snake Dog IPA) I had earlier didn't make me drowsy. Perhaps I should have had 2...or 3, but I wanted to blow some calories on buttered popcorn, instead.
I need to make myself go to bed...kiddo will be up in 7 hours or so. I know tomorrow I will regret burning the midnight (er...1am) oil. At least tomorrow is a "rest" day. I have cleaning the bathroom, washing the car, vacuuming (house and car) and my ab workout on the agenda.
Am I the only one who experiences this phenomenon? Perhaps this is like when I was a little kid and would get overtired and wired (my kid also does this--on top of ADHD it's almost a comical sight to watch him literally buzzing all over the place). At least I'm not bouncing off the walls.
