Travel hangover

We got home just after sunset last night.  I’m so tired from traveling.  I find it ironic that sitting still in a vehicle can be so physically exhausting.  I drank some black tea yesterday afternoon so I could stay alert while taking a shift of driving and it must have been too much for my normally caffeine free system.  I couldn’t fall asleep until after 2am.  It was horrible.  I was so tired but just not sleeping.  I finally fired up a meditation but it was auto-playing the next meditation so that woke me up each time.  I finally shut it off completely but I don’t even know what time it was at that point.  Yesterday, I did get to run at a hotel in Oklahoma City before we got back on the road.  It was actually one of the best hotel exercise rooms I’ve been in recently.  Usually there is some sort of issue with the treadmills or the temperature is off the charts but this one was fully functioning and maintained at a reasonable temperature.  I ran 2 miles before we set out on the road again.  This morning I was super, super tired when I woke up around 7am.  I walked a half mile to wake up and then jogged my beloved route through the cemetery and also jogged home.  I logged 1.5 miles of jogging total and it really wasn’t as bad as I expected.  It was unusually cool for Illinois in August so that definitely helped.
