Day 606: No sleep, but exercise

My first 10k in forever this morning. Slow — over an hour — but I got it done.

This on very little sleep — for variety’s sake, it was both my wife and I up in the night for about an hour, then lying in bed and talking for probably another ninety minutes before she fell back asleep and I just kept on thinkin’.

Up at 4:30, a good long run, and a good hard think while running.

Obviously, things have been on my mind — again, nothing I can really share publicly. I don’t think I’ve come up with any masterful solutions over the past 24 hours, but the exercise and mulling it over has definitely helped me chunk the problem out into categories of difficulty that I can tackle in segments. That’s a good start.

I’m glad I’m moving toward an exercise > sleep path, at least for now. I feel better having gotten the exercise in than I would have with another hour of fitful rest, I think.
