Eat, Sleep, Run, Repeat – The mantra of many a runner, but how many of us are actually doing the ‘sleep’ part well? How many of us realise the true significance of sleep quality & sleep quantity in order to not only optimise our running goals but also to secure a healthy, long life?
My five week sleep study using Cerebra’s In Home Polysomnogram Sleep System is now over. Read on for details of how to hear the results!
In examining the relationship between sleep quality/quantity and performance, it is useful to take a look at the terminology commonly used, and appreciate how many of the words & acronyms we commonly see are often misused. In this article we consider REM Sleep, Non-REM Sleep (including deep sleep), the effectiveness of wearables in tracking sleep, chronotypes, circadian rhythms, and whether you are a Lion, Bear, Wolf or Dolphin.
Familiar with the word ‘polysomnography‘? How about ‘electroencephalography‘? Join me as I embark on a five week sleep study using ‘Cerebra Sleep System’ technology developed by Cerebra, a Canadian company transforming the future of sleep diagnosis and therapy. Thanks to self–applied, polysomnography (PSG) in the comfort of my own home, I’ll be seeing how removing caffeine from my diet affects my sleep quantity & quality.
