A Short One

Today's post is going to be a brief one as I am not completely sure of the internet access at the lodge we'll be staying at, nor of how busy I'll be. Right now I feel like I'm fighting off a cold and I'm completely exhausted feeling. I didn't sleep well at all for two reasons: 1) cold medicine and 2) Jason getting home after 11:30 pm.

He went out with the guys from the wedding party last night. Actually, I pretty much saw Jason all of 10 minutes yesterday. Anyway, I have a really hard time falling asleep without him being home. I also knew that when he got home, he'd wake/startle the dogs so I was semi-anticipating that. Plus, the medicine I took kept me awake as well. I probably didn't finally fall asleep until sometime around 1 am.

I am planning (key word) on trying to hit up Group Ride at my gym at noon. I do have to go by Whole Foods though to pick up a few things to take with me and to leave for my sis and the kids who will be watching the dogs for us. I also took more sinus medicine, so we'll see how excited I am about a workout when the time rolls around. There is supposedly a gym at the place where we are staying, so I can always get in cardio tomorrow if not today.

The wedding festivities are taking place at Mount Magazine. It's supposed to be a 2-hour drive, not too terrible. Oh, and everyone raves about how gorgeous it is there as well. I'm mostly packed, but Jason is not so who knows what time we'll actually pull out of the driveway this afternoon. I have no idea what time the rehearsal is this evening. I am fairly certain Jason doesn't know either ;-) I'm trying to not stress out about schedules and eats and all that jazz. Maybe I'll just curl up with some vino in my room if worse comes to worse - thought it'd taste like crap right now after the sinus medicine.

I will take pictures and hope to be able to post normally tomorrow. I'm sure I'll have plenty of down time as the wedding isn't until 5pm.

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

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
