Training Induced Narcolepsy : Random and sometimes uncontrollable bouts of sleep after a hard workout. (term...made up by me).
This weekend I didn't have one bout of Training Induced Narcolepsy (T.I.N.), but two. So on Sunday after deciding that YES, an 8 mile run in the middle of the day, in a very unshaded place, while it was very warm, combined with a well executed faceplant on the trail (yes, me, the oh so graceful one, DID manage to bite it...once again.), following a reasonably tough bike the day before (lots o-hills), I got home, took a shower, pulled my robe on and planned to briefly lie down on my bed, you know, just for a second. I woke up an hour later to my phone ringing. oops. My face plant was a bit deja vous of my last trail running face plant, but I managed not to fall on my knees and therefore not induce a hip spasm that would take months to recover from, but I do have a huge bruise on my thigh now.
Then on monday, I ventured out for what was supposed to be a 28mile bike but got turned into a 38 mile bike after roads we thought were supposed to be open, were not in working condition. Again a hill fest like Saturday's ride, but this time I did get a little further into my day after coming home and taking a shower before the T.I.N hit. I was in the middle of doing laundry and sat down for a second and was out for a half an hour. Never know when it will hit.
(Random side note...there are dogs that are used to study narcolepsy. In this clip it is a doxin, but a lot of times they used Doberman Pinchers and Labs. Scientists may have found a gene that is linked to it in dogs.)
I didn't think I was that tired this weekend that I would randomly just fall asleep, but I guess I was. This weekend's training was pretty good, swimming friday in the ocean, a hilly ride sat, long run sun and a hilly longer ride on monday. Last weeks training was also pretty decent, found a new Max on my deadlift: 210 and on my backsquat: 139. Improvements are good.
Life in these parts has been good, really insane at work, my trainings is going decently and hence I am very behind on many blogs and writing on mine, but all around things are going well. I will catch up here one day soon. I hope. :-)
