Yep. Balance your workout. Some days do it in the morning, some at night. Working out in the evening can raise cortisol/stress levels. in turn revving up the central nervous system making it harder to wind down and sleep etc. There are other factors that come into play and it's an in depth discussion but it can certainly make a difference. That combined with what you said about the PHD, the mind can wonder.Not really. I only have one cup of coffee a day for breakfast so it's not caffeine. It may possibly be because I don't finish CrossFit training til 6:30 so it could possibly be that. I should try working out in the morning and see if it makes a difference. I'm also doing my PhD atm so lay awake thinking about different ideas for that. Not sure what to do about that one.
Like caffeine, there's a fine line between genius and insanity when you're a driven individual which you certainly are. Manage stress levels, look into that, and make sure you do a mixture of relaxing things and wind down earlier some days/nights.
