Pushing myself

This week it has been all about hockey and working late on a few projects at work.  With the week drawing closer to the end, and playoffs on the horizon on Saturday, I am starting to feel drained.  I am pushing myself just a little too hard physically and mentally.  I am getting enough sleep, but it just feels like I am behind the 8-ball.

Yesterday I worked till 5, then played from 6-7, and then worked on a backup tape issue at work and a project until about 10:30.  By the time I looked at the clock, it was already time to get some sleep.  I was just spent.  Hockey was very exhausting physically.  That really concerns me with playoffs on Saturday.  I am going to have to play at least 3x more games, and it could be as many as 6 games before the end of the day.  I had better whip myself into shape and fast.

I think a lot of my problem is that I am overstretching myself just a tad.  I am now done with the after hours work for right now, and I have one more game tonight before playoffs on Saturday.  After my game tonight, win or lose, I am going to be taking it easy the next two evenings and getting a lot of rest.  I am going to need it.

More to come later.
