Day 3 / 11th January 2021
Last night didn't go so well. I was in bed on time, and woke around 2am again like last night, but then I woke again shortly after 4am (recalled that I was dreaming here too) but couldn't get back to sleep. I dozed for a while (this shows as light sleep but I was pretty conscious, just not motivated to drag myself out of bed), and then by 6am I gave up with the idea of sleep and carried on with my morning routine of getting a cup of tea and reading a book (6am). I had set my alarm clock for 15 minutes earlier (6:45am) but this plan didn't play out!
I certainly didn't feel refresh, but the positives are that I still got 50+ minutes of deep sleep and over an hour of REM sleep, which is technically comparable to two nights ago when I did feel like I had a good sleep.
Today I manually activated my activities on the Fitbit device rather than have it guess what was going on (since yesterday it had got this a little wrong*)
The abrupt end to the chart above is because I stopped the activity on the device as soon as I got home and my heartbeat was still high.
Today's heartbeat was only 2 bpm lower than yesterday's average, but it peaked lower at 165 bpm compared with yesterdays sprint effort of 173 bpm. That poor sleep surely didn't help.
Not much energy here although the average bpm was only 4 lower than the ride two days ago. The peak was quite a bit lower though at 138 compared to 170 bpm on that previous ride. I had a headwind to contend with today on the way back, not that that should affect my heart's bpm.
hoping a sleep better tonight!
