Our expert says:
After that kind of physical exercise, the adrenaline levels are topping out, and that is what keeps you awake. There are various techniques to relax, but the most important thing to do is to have a regular bed-time routine, of about 60 minutes before getting into bed, and, before that, it would be a good idea to do some other hobby-related (non-physical activity) for an hour or two.
Remember, it is really mental activity that requires more sleep to recover, much more so than physical activity.
