It's just after 9:00 on Tuesday. I've had a cup of coffee, and I'm hoping that it just hasn't kicked in yet. My brain is so tired it just hurts. I hate that feeling. Yesterday was just as bad.

I went to bed around 9:45 last night (I vowed after yesterday that I'd get to bed early), but didn't fall asleep until after 10:30. That's the worst, when you're too tired to fall asleep. That still gave me a little over 7 hours of sleep. You'd think that'd help.

So, despite my valient efforts to get to bed early, I'm still exhausted today. I wish I could run on less sleep, but I really need at least 8 hours a night. That increases (to what amount, I have yet to find) significantly when I'm running high miles or high intensity.

*Sigh* I WILL get to bed by 9:00 tonight, I'm swearing to myself now. Hold me to it!!
