Preparing for the Fatigue Storm

Am I intoxicated? I think so - (TIS) Training Intoxication Syndrome. Somewhere in all this, my training hit a stride, volume ramped up, and I seem to be carried along by it. The energy level is good. Mental acuity is fine...well, as good as it can be - has ever been. This won't last though. Today I woke at 2:20 AM and could not go back to sleep - ready for daylight and the training day. This mental thing will carry me only so far before the crash. Then it will be hangover time. I have been in the eye of a storm, and this feels something like it. Just a few more days, then transition - a little backing off, taking in the lawn chairs, boarding the windows, and preparing for the fatigue storm.
