Fun Facts Friday - Four Things

Rest Day
Well, today is a much-needed rest day for me. I had thought about trying to sneak in my chest workout during lunch, but I'm going to be realistic (and rational) with myself. I need to rest completely. I have a 4-miler tomorrow and 7-miler on Sunday. If I don't rest up, the runs will suffer. Period. My muscles will not atrophy if I miss the chest workout this week. They won't will they??? Just kidding.

Tonight we're supposed to meet up with some friends at The Flying Saucer for a happy hour. I'm looking forward to hanging out with friends (not just guy friends, but a girl friend as well). I realized recently that I mostly spend time hanging out with the guys. Our typical Friday happy hour involves Jason and me meeting up with 2 guy friends who also work right by our offices. Don't get me wrong, not complaining, but I do think I need more girl time too. Or maybe not, that just encourages things like shopping trips....LOL

Tomorrow I'll definitely get some girl time with my sis. Her birthday was Monday, so she has asked us to come stay with her tomorrow night and go eat with her at one of her favorite sushi places. I'm sure we'll have lots of fun, I mean, that's a given when we're together! For my female readers - do you find that you spend more time with guys or other girls? Which do you prefer?

Workout Wednesday - Body Blaster Tabata

Happy Hump Day! I wanted to thank everyone for their comments on yesterday's post: Be Kinder to Your Body. Calories are Not the Enemy . It sounds like it resonated with many of you. Today I wanted to share a new workout with you. I've been working on interval workouts for some of my clients. I try to give them the most bang for their buck (time). I know that in an ideal world, we would all have time to do longer workouts. There would never be scheduling conflicts, sick husbands or kids, or sick us. In reality, workouts need to be effective and efficient. And they don't have to be lengthy to be effective and efficient either. There's no need to spend hours in a gym to get in a good workout. Interval workouts like HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) or tabata, or even interval running are great ways to get in a fantastic workout in a short amount of time and have many benefits. You can read more about Tabata workouts  here .

Piriformis Update & Grilled Veggie Salad

New Piriformis Exercises Today wasn't too terrible for a Monday. Of course, I did leave a little early. That always helps huh ;-) I had another round of physical therapy today. My PT has been really researching piriformis syndrome and found an interesting article that discusses the use of McKenzie Exercises - typically used for back pain. I have started adding in low back extensions (one of the exercises) but now have a whole new list of exercises to add into my workout rotations. But, if it helps, I'll do it. I also asked her about dry needling (thanks Sarena ), which is sort of similar to acupuncture, but is more about trigger point and intramuscular stimulation. And I'm glad I asked because the timing is uncanny. One of the doctor's in the clinic happens to be going to get certified this weekend. They both believe that I am a prime candidate for the procedure. So we'll see how that goes. Kind of scared because I hate hate hate needles. Have any of you tr
