after a busy week training and working slight amounts of overtime everyday I dozed off this afternoon on the couch watching the TdF. 4 hours later I awake to my brother calling on the phone. Not the ideal way to spend the afternoon but with my wife out of town for another 2 weeks it could be worse.

So now I'll put a light on the Rig and practice riding at dusk for 24/9. I won't ride too much, I do have to work at 6 am before driving to Milwaukee for the Metro Challenge

Naps are the greatest.

I've been working graves since December, and when I stagger in to the house at 0730, the last thing I want to do is go ride.

Give me about a twenty or thirty minute nap, though, and I'm ready to go!

Gotta find a way to get my nappin' in at work. That'd be ideal.

Since breaking my leg I'm Mr. Nap. I pass out on the couch every couple of hours throughout the day.

It's actually kind of nice. In a few weeks, I gotta start getting my ass to the gym though :eek:

I almost prefer naps to sleep, because I actually wake up feeling less tired. The best is when you don't totally knock off, you're awake but still feel like you just got hours of sleep when you get moving again. Morning after sleeping even, I want to stay that way. It's a really good thing there's no hammer in my room, because it probably would get used on the alarm clock.

Sleeping as a rule is great, never understood people who took drugs that keep you awake. Napping is great and has a side benefit, the body only produces HGH (human growth hormone) during REM sleep. If you sleep after a hard ride your body has jump started the recovery process sooner. A lot of people who make a living racing bikes take naps after training.

I used to take a quick nap at work after lunch. Few times the boss would come down to our "dungeon" and catch me sleeping in what was one of the other bosses old chair. It was that comfortable! :p
