I Slept for 14 Hours & 10-Minute Kettlebell Workout

Mal and Murphy gave me a wonderful welcome home from Florida!

It involved a delicious dinner from Lime Leaf and watching a movie together last night.

Unfortunately, I fell asleep on the couch around 7:00 PM, so I didn’t watch very much of the movie. I actually ended up sleeping for 14 hours last night, which is probably the longest I have ever slept in my adult life. (Doesn’t it kind of look like I’m sniffing Murphy’s butt in the photo below? Haha!)

This morning, Mal cooked me a delicious pancake breakfast while I ran out for iced coffees.

Check out the T in my pancake. Mal is so fancy!

  1. I think you have me beat at 14…I’ve hit 11, but that’s it.

    Thank you so much for this kettlebell workout. I have a stress fracture – am missing the Philly marathon next week – and have been taking inspiration from you but working on weightlifting. I can’t do the burpees, but the rest makes for an awesome routine. Thanks!

  2. How do you know when you are true New Englander? … you have ice coffee’s in the winter! Ha-ha. I am not sure the longest, but I can sleep for pretty long on the weekends. My body still allows me to sleep in, event though I get up early every week day.

  3. My record was 15 hours when I was pregnant. I couldn’t sleep enough! Now I’m lucky if I get 6 per night… boo hoo. 🙁

  4. 14 hours is epic! Bet you feel amazing!!! Julie was saying she had two nights of 4.5 hours sleep so by the sounds of it it was much needed! Love short blast kettlebell workouts! Our workout of the week in the gym this week was a good one…
    1000m row
    50 burpees
    50 swings (44lb)
    50 squat press (2 * 17lb kettlebells)
    1000m run
    For time! Great fun!

  5. I slept for 16 hours straight after returning from the states this summer! I live in France and I was seriously jet-lagged/travel tired after my holiday lol.

  6. I think I have definitely had a 12-14 hour night before, probably after traveling.

    Thanks for the kettlebell workout, I’ve been looking for a quick/efficient one! Can’t wait to try it!

  7. 14 hours of sleep sounds glorious!! I can’t even remember the last time I slept for more than 9 hours. I used to sleep A LOT when I was a baby (once I slept for 18 hours apparently), but as a teen, I think the most I’ve slept is maybe 11 or 12 hours.
    That workout looks awesome! I love quick but intense workouts. Especially with KBs!

  8. Everytime you post about Limeleaf my mouth waters!! I am thinking I might have to road trip there (I live in Chatham on the Cape!) It would probably only take about 90 minutes to get there…Maybe I can convince the boyfriend to go on thursday! It looks soooo good!!!!

  9. I slept until noon this past Saturday. I didn’t even know who I was when I woke up. Haven’t done that in years but it felt pretty awesome!

    I love that Mal put a T in your pancake, and as for that maple peanut butter, I’ll be buying all of that.

  10. Your hubs is a sweetie. What a nice welcome home. Hope you are feeling good with all that sleep-impressive! Have no idea but don’t think I have ever slept that long.

  11. I crash for 12+ hours everytime after I have a big exam, so I totally know how you feel! Everytime I’m on break and I see my family, they always comment on how much I sleep– but it’s because I can’t during the year!

  12. Love when you share workouts like this! I’m going to incorporate this circuit into mine tomorrow in between bike intervals. I love when I sleep a lot like that. It doesn’t happen very often, but sometimes our bodies need a serious rest and you just have to give in.

  13. Sometimes it feels so amazing to sleep for as long as you want to! I think the longest I have slept in the last couple of years has been like ten hours! I miss the college days when I could easily sleep for twelve hours after a night out 🙂

  14. 14 hours sounds heavenly! One of my professors told us that he slept for 14 hours last week and that it was the best night of his life. I imagine if I slept that long, it would be the best night of my life too 🙂 One day…one day…
