Exhausted. Maybe my tiredness can measure how much fun I had in Wisconsin.

It was a great weekend, but I didn’t get as much sleep as I had hoped. I always wish for extra sleep on days off since well, I never get them when I’m working. But, it didn’t work out that way… but that’s OK. Just adding to the debt, right? Maybe next weekend I can finally stabilize it.

You know how I missed my 20 miler on Friday? I was going to do it yesterday but after traveling for nine hours (and a very good April Fool’s joke from our pilot about being delayed by 1-1/2 hours that EVERYONE fell for), I was not in the mood to run it yesterday nor did I have the energy. Plus with how my IT Band has been acting lately, it might be a blessing in disguise not to run it. So instead of stressing out about not getting it in, I’m leaving it alone and moving forward. I have a great base and I don’t think running it would have really done any more good, but it could have made my IT Band feel a lot worse.

And you know what? I think it helped. I did a quick five miles this morning and my IT Band wasn’t even sore! I also started doing some hip stretches, in addition to my hip exercises, to see if that helps because C thinks that they might be tight and that can contribute to IT Band pain (although I’m pretty sure everything contributes to that, ha). So I hope this is a good sign! And it just means I’ll have really fresh legs for Boston.

Wisconsin was a great time — I ate a lot of cheese, went to the casino, drove across the state and went to a bunch of rand-o bars and paid $2 for shots. I also tried to win the Mega Millions jackpot, but apparently needed to travel to Maryland to get my ticket and not Wisconsin. Shoot.

you know you're in wisconsin when...

We also went to a charity bowling event and it was so fun. If you ever get invited to one of these, GO. It was for a local animal shelter and I ended up winning a basket of goodies for my cats, who went wild over it yesterday.

I also got a lot of wedding stuff done! I got to try on my wedding dress again and yep, definitely still love it.

I tried on some headpieces too and my mom talked me into trying on this feather thing that I thought was ugly with a capital U, but it turned out being super cute. Don’t you love when that happens?

How do you recover from a sleepless weekend? Did you have a productive weekend?
