Dallas Day 4 - Goodbye Hotel Gym

First off - I want to acknowledge and apologize for the way the site is looking. I have no idea what happened to the image at the top. It just totally went wonky and I made no changes. This weekend I may be changing templates....

This morning I got up and made it to the hotel gym. I did 20 minutes on the treadmill then did biceps (with some abs thrown in between weights). When I had to go lighter than I normally would, I upped the reps. I was feeling pretty weak today though for some reason (maybe it was the early hour).

Alternating curls - 3x8
Hammer curls - 3x10
Dumbbell bicep curls - 3x10
Zottman curls - 3x8

I finished with 10 minutes on the elliptical. I am so glad I was on the elliptical rather than the treadmill as the power went out. Yikes right?! That could have been a major disaster. I got back to my room, cleaned up, made my oatmeal, and finished packing. I will be sooo happy to be back home to my own shower, toilet, and bed.

The rest of the day was spent in class. Not much exciting to report there as you an imagine. Again, learning useful information, but it really makes for a very long day. I brought my last Amy's frozen meal with me for lunch. I am out of tofu to put on salads and none of the salad bars have beans to add for protein. So, frozen meal it is. We will be leaving for home right after class, so I won't be home until close to 10 tonight. Very long day for me. I'm sure we'll be stopping on the road to eat at some point. I know I can't wait until 10 to eat dinner.

So, another short post for me. I'm posting this during my lunch break and certainly won't have internet access after class. Hope everyone is having a great Hump Day!

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon . The support and words mean so much to me. My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on. I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear. But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well the

Hump Day and More Pineapples

Full-Body Workout  I'll readily admit that getting up this morning was quite painful and almost didn't happen. I forced myself out of bed though not exactly excited about tackling a full-body Pyramid workout. Sort of daunting at 5 am really. I did the warm up from Shock Cardio Cardio Core Circuit (cardio only premix) then hit the weights. It was a pyramid up only so I increased my starting weight. I topped it all off with the first 2 1/2 drills from the cardio workout. I ran short on time and was basically spent. Squats into Plie Squats Step Ups (seriously hate these especially at 5:30 am) Incline Chest Flyes into Chest Press Pullovers into DB Underhand Rows Step Ups (freaking again) Static Lunges Overhead DB Press into Lateral Raises Deadlifts Kickbacks into Overhead Extensions Hammer Curls into Alternating Curls Calf Raises I am so excited to report that my new cross-trainers and running shoes arrived today. Can't wait to test both of them out. I waited way way way too
