....seriously though....say someone has run a marathon...how long realistically would it be for them to return to their full vitality ?....

...I'm refering here to energy, not the wear and tear on a foot or a knee....

thanks




Poppycock did I say that?

What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.

" Bed sharing 'drains men's brains'  

Sharing a bed with someone could temporarily reduce your brain power - at least if you are a man - Austrian scientists suggest.
When men spend the night with a bed mate their sleep is disturbed, whether they make love or not,
 and this impairs their mental ability the next day.

The lack of sleep also increases a man's stress hormone levels.

According to the New Scientist study, women who share a bed fare better because they sleep more deeply."
