Picture Overload

Fantabulous Night Recap
Ok, sit down and hold tight. Lots of pictures ahead:

Well, yesterday evening was a great time. We started off at a Japanese sushi/hibachi place in our hometown. It was me, Jason, my sister, her friend C, and another couple (S and M). We sat at one of the grills, you know the kind - fun hibachi guy tossing around utensils, throwing flames, tossing food. I ordered some edamame, seaweed salad, a shiitake sushi roll and later a veggie roll. Everyone else stared with sushi then had the hibachi. 


Sarah got the whole Birthday song and dance that came with tempura battered cheesecake. Extra dirty martini was not free ;-)
After dinner, we moved along to the first bar where a friend of hers was bouncing. She pretty much just wanted to say hi to him. Music started off ok then turned to country.


 

After the country started, we moved to a bar next door that played more dancing tunes.

 









I must admit to feeling terribly old. Jason was DD and also guarding purses and coats. It was SO smoky and crowded that I spent most of the time standing with Jason trying to be out of the way. Most definitely not my scene any longer.

BUT... I am so glad my sister had fun. That was the most important thing. She said it was one of the best birthdays ever. Jason and I did feel like the old couple having to drag everyone out around 11:30. We just couldn't stand the smoke any longer at that point. And quite frankly, it was a very smart choice to call it a night at that point. Sarah thanked me this morning ;-) Big sisters do know best!

Craptastic Run
Jason and I got back home then bundled up and headed out for our training run. The weather was pretty much a 180 from yesterday. Today the wind chill was about 32 degrees and it was gray and damp. The half marathon training plan called for 7 miles. We ended up completing 7.3. I won't even pretend that I had a great, fun, enjoyable run either. Today was one of those days when I pretty much hated ever single moment of the run.

Did my IT bad hurt? Nope. Did my calves hurt? Yep. But really it was mostly mental. Oh, and my lungs felt like they were going to explode. I'll chalk that up to smoking about 2 packs of second-hand smoke last night.

After the run, we ended up "cheating" and going to Vino's for pizza for a super late/super early dinner. We were both starved, had no desire to cook, and just wanted to be bad ;-)

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
