Do you train in the hours preceding bed time? If so, that's a common problem. You may want to tone down the difficulty of any session done quite late.edinborogh wrote:i guess im weird but here i go -
i get LESS sleep since i started rowing. even after a very hard session - i cant fall asleep. i feel tired physically, but i cant sleep.
When I started this thread it was less about sleep requirements going up as a result of simply feeling tired from training, and more about long term correlations between fitness levels and sleep requirements as general energy levels rise in line with teaching your body to deal with increased stress in the form of physical exercise. Does this make you more resilient?
