Running advice?

Running advice? Topic: Neighborhood case studies

Question: Currently I'm going to bed around 11:30pm, waking up at 5am to run/shower until 7am, and then sleeping from 7-9:30, when I have to go to class. I thought this schedule was working well for me, but now that midterms are coming I'm realizing I'm dead tired starting at about 3:30pm, which isn't good My only other option really is to run after I'm done studying every night at around 11:30pm. I'd be going to sleep around 1:30am, but I wouldn't have to wake up until 9:30am. I guess I'm just wondering what you would do in this situation? Which do you think is more efficient, etc? Thanks, I'm really having trouble with this i forgot to mention that i go to school in a really unsafe neighborhood, so i generally have to run on the track, which is only really fun if no one is around and unfortunately that means at 5am :(

I don't know why but I'm assuming you're a woman? In either case I'd stick with earlier runs; Mainly because it's a "safer" time. Also you're metabolism is increased through out the day burning calories more thoroughly from morning exercise. I'd suspect that you're getting tired from lack of nutrition/calories? You maybe experiencing a low in blood sugar, which is making you tired. Try snacking on veggies and fruits between classes and see how you feel. I'm kind of curious why you would run then go back to sleep? You've speed up your metabolism and increased your endorphins only to fall asleep? I'd sleep in, run and then get ready for the day .. maybe making some time to relax before hand but not going back to sleep!

Here are a few steps you can take to get proper CPU cooling. Pop open the case and armed with a can of compressed air, blow out any dust that has accumulated amongst the various components, paying special attention to fan blades and specifically heatsink fins. A layer of dust here will decrease the cooling ability of the heatsink. Make sure the fans are free to spin as they please, a little twirl with your finger should be presented with a smooth, even flowing fan that doesn't grind to a halt immediately, but rather spins down slowly and kinda bounces when it stops. If not, remove it and clean off all the plastic with a q-tip or similar. Peel back the little specification sticker on the top and put a few drops of 3-in-1 oil on the axle, and patch it back up. On the other side, shoot some contact cleaner/lubricant inbetween the case and the fan blades. A little dab'll do ya here. It it still doesn't spin to spec, might as well trash it and snag a new one. While you're in the case, lightly give the heatsink on the CPU a little wiggle. It shouldln't move. If it does, you'll have to take it off and re-assemble it to form a good, tight bond. A tight mechanical bond between the CPU and the heatsink is imperative for good conductivity. It seems stupid, but make sure the little clear plastic protective dinghy was removed from the heatsink before being installed. Also, you might try some upgraded thermal paste. Stock 'sinks often come with either low grade paste or worse yet, a thermal pad. These don't transfer heat as well as some of the better formulas out there. Arctic Silver 5 has attained cult status among the PC community with it's excellent heat transfer abilities when applied correclty. Thermal paste can dry out over time, creating air pockets between theh sink and the CPU, causing overheating problems, so it might be worth it just to replace it while you're there. Be sure to clean both surfaces completely as described on arctic silver's site. Thermal paste doesn't work if it's dirty. Once you've got everything cleaned, spinning freely, the heatsink tight against the CPU, make sure that the fans are spinning in the correct direction. They should be blowing down on the heatsink. Also case cooling is imperative to a cool PC. Air cooling can only be effective if it's got lower temperature air to blow across heatsinks. A fan at the bottom front of the case drawing air in, and another fan at the back of the case (preferrably towards the top, heat rises) blowing out of the case will create a good crossflow and provide cool air for lower temps.

What is your CPU fan? If you're using a stock CPU fan, upgrade it to an after market fan. The stock CPU fans aren't very efficient. You may have fans blowing air out and blowing air on the CPU, but you should have a decent fan that's going to suck the hot air off and away from the CPU.

see i can't sleep after exercise. so i would say exercise in the morning, but stop splitting up your sleep. its not efficent sleep if its spread out. instead of getting up at 5 get up at 6:30 or 7, go for a run come back and take a shower and then go to school. make sure your getting your protein and some good fats in there tho. otherwise your body will drop thru out the day. i would also try going to bed a little bit earlier like 10:30 or 11 if you can. try to get at least 7-8 hours.

I'd say run before bed because you'll be able to sleep after running. That should be better than running in the morning because you won't have time to rest. Personally, I run and don't study. Of course, that's why I'm going to community college.
