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.
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?
