    i'm playing in a intermural tennis tournament today, however, i did not sleep last night. tips for keeping energy levels reasonably high throughout the day? 3 rounds today, roughly 4-6 hrs of play time, depending.



    if today goes well, then the final handful of rounds are tomorrow.

    Try a 5-hour energy drink. I take about half of one of those before going to the gym.

    I used to complete a lot in USTA (was ranked in top 40 in north cali) and this seems like a very bad idea... You are probably going to crash by your second match if not sooner....

    trying eating a banana/coffee... not sure what else can help

    Good luck man.

    Why didn't you sleep?

    I'd say either way you're screwed. If you take some heavy stimulant shit like E/C, 5-hour energy, tons of coffee, etc... you'll likely feel sick being active for 4-6 hours. If you take nothing, you'll be asleep the whole time.

    handled the day well, seeing as it topped out at about 105 or even higher today. went out for drinks after and just got home. it was a scary drive... started halucinating O_O stupid move on my part, i know.

    so much bullshit tho... tourney is not continuing tomorrow and they are just stopping it as it stands now.. what a waste.
