A few months ago, I switched out my standard running shoe laces with these:
|Not my shoes|
For the past couple of weeks I've been taking a warm bath post-run to soothe my legs and I put this in the bath:
Speaking of sleep, the quality I've had recently hasn't been that great. 1-2 times per week I wake up somewhere between 1-4 am and cannot fall back asleep for at least an hour. The main culprit is being hungry! Yesterday evening, I ran a mile at the gym, did about 20 minutes of weights, then ran another three miles outside. I am not exactly sure how many calories I burned there, but I'm going to estimate around 500. After my run, I ate two pieces of pizza (they were on the small side), a small salad, and then a scoop of frozen yogurt. I also drank about 1.5 glasses of milk and water. At 4 am, I woke up starving so I ate a small bowl of dry cereal and fell back asleep within 15 minutes. So:
A. Does anyone else have this problem, especially after workouts?
B. Does it look like I ate enough food?
C. How do you make sure that you get a good night's sleep?
Side note: before I went to bed I changed my sheets, and usually the first night's sleep on clean sheets is great! Bizarre. Please help!
