    So I'm just trying to figure out if anyone else suffers from this:

    In the mornings namely during my training weeks, I am either so sore the next day or so anemic feeling that it's so hard to get out of bed. I've always had this issue since about high school...but working out has exasperated it. Luckily I don't have an early morning job to wake up to so I usually just wake up and lay in bed for half an hour or so until I get bored enough to just get up LOL. But it hurts to get up and I just feel so battered LOL.

    I'm wondering if this has to do with something of working out? I'm also considering a better Mattress. I'm using a Serta now with a memory foam topper but it's not necessarily top of the line.

    When I spend the nights on Hilton/Marriott/Radisson mattresses, I usually spring up a bit more quickly LOL. But overall, it's still a slow start. Matter of fact, the more comfortable the mattress; the harder it is to get the energy to get up.

    I talk to some people who are able to just wake up as soon as the alarm goes off.

    This was something that started happening to me in college. It turned out that was the beginning of major clinical depression.

    Keep a close eye on how your sleep progresses. If it gets worse, tell your doctor.

    You're just not a morning person, dude. And that's okay. You're gonna make it.

    One thing you can do is keep a bottle of caffeine pills by your bed and as soon as you wake up, take one and go back to sleep. You'll be up and ready to roll in about 20 minutes icon_wink.gif

    Get two alarm clocks and set them up on the opposite sides of the room or get an alarm clock that plays music that you just want to dance to. That should work!

    I wouldn't be too concerned. If you are sore from all your work outs, then your body probably wants to recuperate, and one ways it does so is by you getting good and long hours of sleep. However, a bad mattress can keep you restless all night without you actually being aware of it.


    I like to sleep for long hours, like 10hrs a day. It concerned me as well but then I talked to my doctor and he said its completely okay. Its funny though, on days when I usually have work I have no problems waking up, however, on days that I do not work I can't get out of bed.

    What does your doctor say?

    Since this is an ongoing condition, for at least 6 years, the root cause is most likely something like anemia.

    There is a plethora of nutritional deficiencies. And even if you ARE taking a multi-one a day type vitamin, that doesn't mean that your body is actually utilizing and up-taking those nutrients fully.


    I would suggest a full physical and discussing this with your doctor. The amount of time that you have had these/this symptom strongly indicates it is more than just a mattress problem.

    O M G ! I am not at all a morning person, and anything that I can do to avoid waking up so early, I will do. I am miserable in the mornings, cant think, feel grumpy, sluggish, dumb, etc. I have found that I need at least 9 hours of sleep to be refreshed in the morning. Its really hard to do that during the week. I sleep in on weekends.

    It's a notorious teen/20 thing.

    I have a friend who actually changed his major twice to avoid ever taking a class before 10 a.m. He ended up with a degree in university administration icon_rolleyes.gif

    I wish that was a joke.

    Also seems to be a gay thing around here. Nobody goes out before 12. The action really starts around 0200. Boys fall asleep around 0600.

    Going farther afield, those summers I spent in Spain. Wow. Restaurants won't even seat you before 1000. Most families dine around 1200. Young people go out at 0200. Bars close at dawn. Work starts a couple hours after that. OMFG, it's a good thing they have siesta.

    Increase your magnesium intake, either by the food you eat or by taking supplements.

    It is good thing siesta was invented. I for one, cannot go to bed before 12 ... I am not a morning person, at all .
