I've never needed much sleep but last week i was only able to get about 2 hours a night. I go to bed about 2 and have been waking before 4 totally alert but shattered. On the 5th night of not being able to sleep i stayed in bed for another 2 hours before deciding to go for a run to try and relax. I decided to do my 3.8 mile route at a comfortable pace. I checked my watch at 2km which is the hardest part of the course as it's mainly uphill. Time of 9.45 min not bad as i felt rotten through lack of sleep. After that i can't remember anything about the run. I normally check my time at 3 other points on the route but i failed to do it. I got home and 'iced-up' forgetting to stretch. At this point i looked at my watch 30.24 secs not good as the target time for the course is be below 30 mins but acceptable as i wasn't going for speed.
I then checked my kilo splits at which point i realised that excluding the 2k time check i could not remember anything about my run which is probably why i failed to do any post stretching.
It was like when you drive on auto pilot, you arrive at your destination but can't remember driving there.
Do any early birds run on auto pilot and not remember anything about it?
Sleep running could become the lazy way to exercise.
