I only want to that too much to ask?

Insomnia's a bitch - tossed and turned for about 4 hours, my mind was in overdrive and I have no clue why. I'm dropping the restless leg medicine, going to search out an alternative. Before I hear any feedback know I have tried everything under the sun to help my legs and sleep problems. Calcium, magnesium, hot Epsom salt baths at night, limiting caffeine intake after a certain hour, warm milk, melatonin, tea's, herbs, various mineral supplements, aroma therapy, counting sheep...frick, I've done it all. Is sleep too much to ask for? I may have managed 4 hours of solid sleep last night.

5:00am - 8 mile mind numbing run on the stupid gym treadmill; 8:30 pace - moderate-easy
My legs feel like dead weight from yesterday..somehow that didn't effect the quality of my run today.
