Sleeping IS essential!

My coach (wow--it feels great to say that!  I've waited 45 years to have a COACH!!) says that getting enough sleep is critical.  Boy, is he ever right!  I was awake as much as I slept last night, then got on the 'mill at 5:20 this morning for what can only be described as torture.  I made it through, but by 3.5 miles in, I was wiped out, and then felt sick once I finally finished all 5 miles. 

Additionally, I have come to greatly prefer my outdoor runs to the treadmill.  I do not feel safe going outside at 5:20 (thanks to Buford, the neighborhood bear), but even the hills of Central Virginia beat the monotony of staring at the basement wall.
