I've noticed that I can't get to sleep on days that I've been on a ride...
it's not from any type of restless legs, they feel fine. I just don't feel tired, my body feels fine, I just don't go to sleep.
I can lay there and read and read and read, and when my eyes are tired, I try to go to sleep, but I end up just tossing and turning.
sunday night, i was still awake at 3am, had went to bed right before 11pm. I obviously had fallen asleep at one point, but I immediately wake up and have to roll over or something. I'd check the clock fairly often... 3:30, 3:50, 4:15, 4:45, etc.
has anyone else had this problem the night after they rode earlier in the day.
I generally ride after I get home from work, so I take off at 5 to 5:15pm. riding anywhere from 11-18 miles. on the weekends I like to do a little longer rides if I can and earlier in the day.
why am I still awake and not feeling tired at all? I finally go to sleep, but when the alarm goes off around 6:15am, I know I didn't get enough sleep.
I don't take any medication or sleep aids (i don't swallow pills, it's a phobia I have after I choked on some food as a young boy to the point of passing out), so melatonin is out for me.
any suggestions, thoughts... has anyone had this same problem?
