Fun Facts Friday - Birthday Edition

Busy Day
I'm going to get my post out early today as it's going to be a busy one. Once I head out the door, I really don't know when I'll have a chance to get back to the computer even. Funny how days off can be the busiest days.

I am about to head out for a run. Though it's not yet 50 degrees so I'm slightly dreading it. I really haven't quite figured out how to dress for these cooler temps. I always seem to wear too much and end up hot or with cold sweats. Maybe I just need to take a shopping trip to find more layers ;-)

I really need to do chest but my arms are so sore still from the various workouts this week. It's just all seemed to slowly build up and my entire upper body is sore, but not in a bad way. I definitely know that I worked hard this week.


Fun Facts Friday
I may have to abandon Fun Facts Friday if I can't start getting more creative or inspired. I feel like I've been less than exciting with my fun facts lately. Since my birthday is this weekend, I thought I might share some fun facts related to my birthday.

  • My birthday is Sunday.
  • I'll be *gasp* 36.
  • I'm usually really depressed on and around my birthday.
  • I took off work today to enjoy a long weekend.
  • Today I'm having an early birthday lunch with my mom.
  • I am meeting friends for happy hour later.
  • I have my camera already packed in my purse to take pics of lunch and happy hour.
  • I am determined to not get down about my birthday this go around.
  • My mom used to let me throw huge sleep over parties for my birthday - themed parties where we all dressed up.
  • I am not a fan of birthday cakes (or any cake really).
  • I was often really sick with asthma on my birthday (thank you Singulair, now I'm not).
  • One of my long-time friends shares my birthday. That was always kind of fun.
  • I'm most definitely a Scorpio, though I don't really believe in signs too much.
  • I pretty much always workout on my birthday. Just another day. 



Ok - your turn. Birthdays...love 'em or hate 'em? Favorite birthday memories? Do you love birthday cake? Share share share ;-)

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
