Today was the first day in many weeks that I have not been out of the house! Cold, rain and wind kept me in. Did the 17 minutes cardio/warm-up for the workout on my race bicycle in a Tacx Vortex Smart trainer. Ideal for days like this. Shoulders still complaining 😀 but completed the workout.

Yesterday's lesson was asking about sleep patterns ...
Since a the beginning of this year, being serious in Kenzai programs, I started to stop my habit of not hitting the sack before midnight. I try to be in bed by 11pm. No matter how late I go to bed I am up around 6 am. For me ideal time for workout before breakfast. Also this year probably due to the cancer treatment I have been taking a nap once in a while early or late afternoon. But I must say it is getting less as I'm feeling better all the time.
My biggest issue is the need to go to the bathroom during the night ... often 2 times a night.

Menno, Tracy is up during the night also, 2 to 3 times. I think it is a guy thing. He goes right back to sleep so never really distrubes his sleep. Hope same with you.

    Sounds like you’ve got it covered, Menno.....no matter the weather! Sleep is a challenge for me because i wake up 2-3 times a nite.....If my day is not too busy, i aim for a quick afternoon nap.......

      Yes I believe it may be a man's thing Jane although my Mom always complained about it too. Unfortunately sometimes in the early mornings I hardly fall asleep again.

        That's a nice set up, very cool!

        Nothing wrong with an afternoon nap to get some extra sleep, especially considering the recovery you've had to go through and are still going through I'm sure. I'm sorry to hear you had to deal with that, and I'm glad you're feeling better all the time. Good for you taking such good care of yourself after a major health crisis. It's not easy!
