For years I would suit up and ride at the strangest hours. Late evenings, early mornings. Whenever. Usually my thought went "I'm awake, so ride to deal with the boredom."
In fact, I labeled my favorite rides (according to length) mental health routes 1, 2, 3, & 4.
So then two years ago I'm at the doc's for my annual physical and he comes out with "You are probably sleeping ... 5 hours a night, 6 if you are lucky."
He was spot on, and when I acknowledged that and asked why he commented that as men age they (at least most of them) sleep less.
I also read quite a bit, but one's eyes can only take so much.
Anyway, my questions are three:
- Are any of the rest of you (men) experiencing the same age related insomnia issue?
- Do you ride to deal with it, and if not, what do you do to fill the time?
