Thanks for the episode Vanessa.
Question to both you and Gman.
How much do you think the Main Event in particular is a young persons event?
Given GMan described lack of sleep and the grinding nature of the event.
It is my impression that GMan is very hard on himself. But do you think that you would have been in better shape - if you had have prepared better physically for the challenge?
Perhaps you should investigate relaxation techniques for sleep during stressful, high endorphine experiences like a deep run in a prestigious tournament. There was a scandal here in Australia about elite sportsmen using sleep tablets after night sporting events because of the exertion and the impact of the adrenaline making sleep impossible. Whilst I am not suggesting sleeping pills - if you focus on the little things like how to get more sleep during these events perhaps you might not be prone to the mistake you made.
