The Pain Of Daylight Savings

The clocks went back on Sunday morning and I know that a lot of people are complaining about this at the moment. I know there will also be a lot of people who are thinking that I am complaining about nothing but for me it is difficult to adapt to the change in time.

I have a really rigid routine when it comes to sleep and waking up. I always go to sleep at 10pm the n the next day is a week day (and around 11pm when the next day is a weekend). I never have an issues falling asleep and pretty much fall asleep within a couple of minutes of going to bed. I also always wake up at around the same time everyday.

This routine means that I have a really regular body clock, changing the time that my clock says does not have any effect on my internal body clock which means that it will take me a number of days (usually about a week) for me to fully adjust to the change in time.

Last night I tried to go to bed as usual at 10pm but by body was not fooled and I played awake till 11pm (which is when 10pm would have been). This in effect means that I got an hours less sleep last night than I ordinarily would.

This is going to make it difficult for me to get up in time to go for runs this week but I am going to try my best with my running any my diet.
