Rest Day & Test Driving

Today I am enjoying a rest day. I actually woke up around 4:30 this morning and tried to go back to sleep, but around 5:20 I was still awake. I almost got up to get in chest, shoulders, triceps. But after some debating with myself, I realized that yesterday's back/biceps workout would negatively affect any upper body weights today as my biceps are indeed talking to me. So, it was a rest day.

Tomorrow is supposed to be terribly stormy weather unfortunately. That means I'm going to have to take my run indoors. Not super excited about it as it calls for 6 miles followed by incline intervals then speed drills. I can handle the intervals and the drills, but 6 miles steady-state??? I may be fudging that plan once again (and I won't feel bad about it one bit).

After work, I finally went to test drive a couple of cars. My required list is easy: sporty, 2-door, convertible or sunroof, zoom zoom on the speed. I would prefer a standard as that's all I've driven. I don't think this sounds unreasonable, but apparently it is. Not finding many cars that fit into this category...oh, and affordable, forgot that part ;-)

There are pretty much four cars that I was interested in. I drove two and knocked one off the list just looking inside. One I am on the fence about and just need to go back and drive it. I was sort of hoping that driving the two I drove today would just settle it - like I'd like one a ton more over the other. So didn't happen that way of course.

Test driving of course put us home later than normal. Dinner is just going to be some Black on Black Bean Burgers I had stashed in the freezer with some baked sweet potato fries.

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 these days…

Let's Have Coffee

If you're a regular blog reader, I'm sure you've seen similar posts, scenarios if you will, about what we might chat about or what I might say if we sat down and had coffee together.

I think these can be fun. Maybe fun isn't the right word choice exactly. But maybe it is? They're transparent, showing who the blogger really is ... if they're being honest of course. It's not often you truly get to sit down with the person behind the blog.


If we were to have coffee together ...

I would first let you know that I'm not a super fan of coffee. I drink mine with hot cocoa and it's mostly out of habit rather than the need for caffeine. I could forgo it on the weekends entirely.

Since we're talking coffee, I would also let you know that I've never ordered coffee from Starbucks and only once from a true coffee shop. I've only been into 2 Starbucks shops - the original in Seattle and one in town where I ordered a bottle of tea when meeting a friend. …

PJs n Pizza Recap

What Happened Last Night?
This morning I woke up first at 6:20 when Maddie decided she wanted out of her kennel and to be downstairs. The second time was 8:09 when Heath decided he wanted out of his kennel and downstairs to eat. I won't like, I would like to (needed to) have slept another two hours. It was a little slow going after last night.

Sign of a good party would be my first tweet of the day:  I'm thinking there is a bird in the house...what the hell happened last night???

Yep, found bird poop where bird poop most definitely should not be. Still have not found said bird however.

It should go without saying that last night was a total blast. It was so fun having everyone just be relaxed and comfy in jammies. I am not known for letting loose often, but I definitely went with it last night. There was a bit (lot) of wine consumed, pizza devoured and even some dancing.
