Coach Rebecca’s dogs Teaka and Brownie, and Coach Kristie’s dog Cosmo, demonstrate one of the most important aspects of training, SLEEP.
Sleep, not just workouts, should be high on the priority list for athletes. The body rebuilds and gets stronger at rest. Sleep is important for athletic performance and overall health.
Most people need between 7 and 9 hours of sleep, if you are an athlete in training, you need more. Go to bed earlier or sneak in a nap. Plan for sleep and set a planned bedtime just like you plan for and budget time for workouts.
