And so to Bed...
Ultimately, sleep is your friend.
It’s important to train hard but remember you can only give 100% at each session if you recover appropriately in-between!
Illness can be the biggest killer in sport. Lack of recovery can mean you don’t only under-perform but you can get sick too. I’ve been known to sleep using a nasal strip to help me getting a better shut-eye whilst being congested.
Conversely, it’s important to remember that not being able to sleep properly indicates you have over trained or are suffering from sleep deprivation.
Learn your body’s signals and put as much effort into relaxing, the right way, as you can.
Look after your body and it will look after you!
