Run stronger and better with good quality sleep! @runnersworld explain:

Night after night of restricted (or interrupted) sleep sets off a cascade of hormonal shifts with harmful biological effects. Within a week or two, you’ll have higher levels of the inflammatory marker C-reactive protein and the stress hormone cortisol, keeping your heartrate higher and your nervous system on constant alert. Human growth hormone, which repairs muscle and bones, is secreted by your pituitary gland during deep sleep, says Shelby Harris, director of the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Programme at Montefiore Medical Center in New York. The less sleep you get, the lower your levels. Your muscles’ ability to store glycogen for energy also declines, meaning you risk running out of gas no matter how much you carb-load, says Harris. Plus, there’s some research that indicates your injury risk goes up if you don’t get enough shut-eye.
