Good morning! Or good afternoon??!! My body is in a very confused state right now, methinks. I don’t have too much to report in this post because, literally, I just woke up an hour ago and have just unpacked and done laundry, but I do have a massive grocery shop to do since we have zero food at all in this house!

So back to last night for a second though. I jumped on the red eye out of LA at 9:30 and got into Tampa around 5:15 this morning. Ryan was there to greet me, bright eyed and bushy-tailed and I promptly passed out and didn’t wake back up again until 11:00. So it might seem like I slept in but I really think that all together, I only got about 6 hours of sleep. They don’t call it the red eye for nothin’! I’m going to lay low today for sure.

When I arose I ate the only thing I could find in the house: a bowl of Barbara’s Shredded Oats with soy milk

I’m still feeling quite foggy right now but am dressed in my workout clothes because I’m about to go do a quick 2 miles on the treadmill upstairs. Gotta get back into my routine…before I know it it will be October and I will be headed BACK to San Fran to run my race!
Sorry I’m so boring right now but I’m still in a haze! Will pull myself together and check back in a bit……

    Haha, Jenna, you’re actually pretty pulled together for someone with jet lag! When I came back from Canada recently, I arrived in England exxxxhausted and my bf and I went straight to bed at around 4:30 pm. Promptly woke up at 12am, WIDE AWAKE … argh. Had some warm milk to calm us down and then we slept again until 11am… wow. Too much sleep. I walked around in a fog for days. lol. Anyway, this blog is not about me!! What I’m trying to say is, you’re doing the right thing by treadmilling it out. 🙂

    Glad you made it home safe and sound. Traveling is rough on the body, but I’ve also found that jumping right back into the old routine is the best way to keep jet lag at bay. Have a great run!

    Getting back on schedule is key after experiences like you’ve just had but I’m super impressed you’re doing it day one! I would totally need a full day of vegging to recovery after the whirlwind week you’ve had!!

    The trip looked a-m-a-z-i-n-g – can’t wait to hear what offer you were made/ what you decide to do!
