El sueño en carreras de ultraresistencia

INTRODUCTION

It is well known that long distance runner suffer sleep deprivation when a race requires them not to sleep for 1 or 2 nights. This kind of sleep deprivation and the neurocognitive and physical performance consequences and has been little studies. We also have very little data on the recovery time.

The lack of adequate study instruments is the main reason for having no data in the literature on this topic. However, due to the advancement from circadian rhythm studies by chronobiologists, we now the adequate tools in order to study sleep deprivation and it´s consequences. The aim of research in this area, is to develop appropriate guidelines and routines to improve athletes´ sleep and consequently their daytime performance.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS WORK

For two years (January 2014-December 2015) We will study sleep, circadian rhythms and neurocognitive consequences of these athletes during their training session for the races in which they participate. These parameters will be studied before, during and after the races. At the same time, we will carry out attention tests before the race, just after finishing and 5 days after the race.

The main goal is to obtain objective data on the fragmentation of sleep, the circadian disorders and neurocognitive consequences. This will allow us to give the runners adequate recommendations for future races and to improve their performance.
