Brooks "Run Happy" Tip: This week, let's focus on sleep. Sleep is one of the main components of proper recovery and can effect so much more than your workout including but not limited to: increased appetite and cravings for sugar and carbohydrates, lowered cognitive function and immune function and greater susceptibility to stress. Work on getting 7-9 hours of sleep or until you wake fully rested. One of the best ways to improve your sleep habits is to set a bedtime. Falling asleep and waking at the same time each day insures your body gets in proper rhythm. How well are you sleeping?
