Today turned into an unplanned rest day. I woke up this afternoon and was pretty wiped. I figured an extra hour of sleep was better than 5 easy miles.
A pattern is starting to form. I'm going 8 days on then the need for rest hits me. I'm thinking the 8 days is key here since technically that is a week for me with my 4 on/ 4 off work schedule. I'm going to have to factor this into my training plan so my future rest days are planned instead of forced. Really today isn't a complete rest, more of an active rest since I rode to work.
The extra hour sleep put me on the right side of the weekly sleep debt stat that the SleepBot App tracks. Since I started using it I'm usually on the wrong side while I work. I'm a whole 22 minutes ahead for the last 10 days. It's a pretty miss leading stat which I pretty much ignore. The chart generated by the daily sleep total is more telling. I can look at it & tell exactly when I'm working & when I'm not.
