Should I try to nail my work­out af­ter a night of crappy sleep?

Runner's World South Africa - - Personal Best -

A night or two of toss­ing and turning won’t throw you off too much, and you may feel more alert that day (and sleep bet­ter that night) if you run. If you’re chron­i­cally de­prived, your body might shout “I give up!” – and you must listen. Run­ning makes mus­cles, bones, and joints stronger only when those parts can re­gen­er­ate af­ter you’ve taxed them. Sleep is crit­i­cal to that process. – Matthew Edlund, au­thor of The Power of Rest
