How important is sleep?

Answered By Drew Wasmund

Question

How important is sleep?

Answer

Sleeping is huge. If you are not getting enough hours - OR the right kind of hours your training will be affected. Most people say one should get eight hours or sleep at least. Again, consistency is the key here. Your body loves being consistent. If you can run at the same time everyday, eat at the sometime, and sleep at the same time. Make it a goal to be in bed at a good time every night. At the same time don't stress out when you are not sleeping well. The last thing you want to do is be sitting in bed stressing yourself out trying to force yourself to fall asleep. Remember, all of the "little things" count, but have confidence that when you step on the line you are going to run hard no matter what negativities have occurred.
