Monday Funday! People still say that right? Neither do I. In any case, today is work 4am-2pm, with a little extra travel time to Restaurant Depot for a few supplies, which means Podcasts FOREVER!
I just heard recently about a study out of Finland that showed that people who exposed themselves to a Sauna before bed were able to get higher quality sleep. So I took my first HOT shower in months, and I do believe I experienced a favorable result, considering I only got 6 hours of sleep which would normally make me a little cranky.
In a double-whammy decision, the Neurohacker Collective suggests that once every 3 months or so you should cut out your caffeine intake to restore your tolerance. I’m not really a fan of this one, but I do love a challenge, so I’ve decided this week will be my caffeine-free (I love hyphens) Hell Week! It usually doesn’t get too difficult until later in the week. But if I say anything strange, you know what happened.
After work I was able to spend a little time on dry practice, working on walking while keeping the marker steady, as well as some snap shooting form work. Important stuff!

Workout Details: This morning’s workout featured a 50 pound Ruck around the neighborhood with intermittent breath holds and High Altitude Simulation. I weighed all of my gear the other day, including a case of paint, and was flabberghasted (spellcheck me) that I would be carrying almost 30 pounds of gear in a game. So I’m going to begin conditioning myself for this burden.
