2nd last night shift which means a 12 hour shift and a longer lunch. Logged a 12K run this morning on my meal break. Originally set out to add one more K and one more fartlek however I decided to stretch out the last fartlek to a K at the 9K mark then at 10K start a long long cool down wrapping it up at the 12K mark.

Working mids sleeping is always a challenge. I get into different modes ... sometimes I will sleep for 8-10 hours , sometimes I hardly sleep ...cat naps here and there. This week its the power nap ... one deep sleep cycle 3-5 hours then awake. Today after 4 hours of good solid sleep I woke up knowing it was a sunny and comfortably warm day and I just felt like going for a trail run. I wasn't hungry , thirsty or in need of Coffee just wanted to hit the trail for a bit and that's what I did logging 5.7K on the backyard trail. After I ran I grabbed 2 Beers for breakfast and floated around the pool.

Strangely enough I spent more of my run with the HR in Zone 3! Logged an 8Ker with 4 fartleks. It was hot hot hot ...the shirt I was wearing is suppose to be a tech t however it is thick and heavy and doesn't breath ... good heat training!
