Alan V 9 lovely hours on Sunday
Training Hard? Working Hard? Playing Hard?
So here's a challenge that all sportspeople could benefit from on occasion. A really good night's sleep.
You'll know the best way to ensure that you are able to sleep - chances are if you're training regularly that shouldn't be a problem. But still making a priority to avoid distractions and hit the pillow early is surprisingly challenging these days.
Treat yourself to a good night's sleep! Challenge rules
- Try to add an hour to your minimum daily average night's sleep or let nature wake you up
- Disconnect anything that could disturb you - phones, alarm clocks etc.
- Mark the challenge complete if, by lunchtime, you are feeling the rewards of nature's true restorative!
- Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
“With two young children, it does not happen often! Had a few days where I really pushed myself in the gym, and thats when it happened!!! Feeling on top of the world now!!!”

Shelia B I slept really good last night the best night in awhile. I'm working so hard that I'm wearing myself out now. I fell a sleep on the couch watching TV.
Laura S Looking forward to being able to call this challenge complete! Have not had an uninterrupted night of sleep since I signed up for it.
Simone B Completed Thurs 16/1 - Had a good 7 hours sleep last night, no tossing and turning like most nights.
Chrissy E after the new year's madness i slept for 12 1/2 hours last night. I feel like a new person.
Aija M Doing this already 2 days.. I've been sleeping ~9 hours which is much for me. Usually I'm sleeping not more than 7-8 hours & if I sleep more I feel overslept & guilty about it. :D
Marco C I slept for almost 10 hours last night. I still feel a normal soreness from yesterday's training but other than that I feel great!
