We traveled back from Memphis on Tuesday, and I struggled with adjusting back to my time zone. I just knew if I could get one good night's sleep, I'd be able to turn the corner. It didn't happen Tuesday night, since I had to stay up and watch Game of Thrones On Demand. I couldn't got to work on Wednesday and have everyone talking about it and spoiling it for me. Wednesday at work was unnecessarily stressful…anyway, Thursday night was a good night's sleep finally, so I lifted and did yoga on Friday.
Luckily Trisha met me for 5 miles on Saturday morning (I had no interest in joining the running group for 10 whole miles). Yeah, so last week's mileage was 18, 13 of which were Monday in Arkansas. I wish I could race/travel and just jump right back into a training routine. I'm learning, in spite of myself, that rest days are important too.

The website says the course is flat and fast, but B and L ran it a few years ago and mentioned the wind. I won't race again until August, so it might be fun to really attack this one, if the weather cooperates.
Plan for this Week
Monday: 4 miles
Thursday: Weights/3 miles
Saturday: Garmin Half - Kansas- State #34!
Today is the Boston Marathon! A Facebook friend is running it. I was laughing at her other friends wishing her good luck Saturday morning and then others on Sunday morning. Boston is always run on a Monday! Good luck to everyone racing it today!
