Some people have a problem getting their training up to speed, some people have a problem locking their nutrition in, and some people just can’t drink enough water. My problem is my sleep and my other forms of recovery. Starting about three years ago, I got really diligent with recovery protocols. NormaTec massage, Headspace [a meditation app], all of those things.

Yeah, I use SleepScore. I try to think of it like this: I’m trying harder, and I’m not perfect at it, but I’m doing better. If I’m keeping tabs on myself and I’m holding myself accountable and I’m not doing it in a stressful way, then I’m already way better off than I was. Sometimes the knee-jerk reaction is to be angry at the app when it tells you that you’re not sleeping well, but I can’t be angry at it. It’s like getting the test back when you know you didn’t study. You can’t be pissed that you got a D, you know? You earned that. You didn’t do the work.

Do you eat before you leave your hou
