Same here. I'd have to cut cycling and swimming except for commuting to get close to 8 hours.
Wake up at 7, work at 8 (optimistically), leave at 5 and arrive at gym to coach at 6. Finish coaching at 9, home by 10, dinner and wind down by 11. If I need to shower it cuts into sleep time. To swim I get up an hour and a half earlier. The days without coaching I can (A) train after work or (B) sleep early enough to make up for lost sleep.
Training beats not training, even if it cuts into sleep.
Then weekend races require getting up at 5 am, but with coaching I can't get to bed before 11 on Friday. Saturday night the options are (A) skip out on going out after dinner time (B) live on 6 hours of sleep.
It's a very rare night that I get 8 hours of sleep. It doesn't happen weekly.
