Toasted Tempeh Burritos on Dreary Thursday

Dreary Day
Today was one of those really gloomy, gray days that make you want to stay in bed. The only thing I was looking forward to was finally having the insurance company start the process of considering my car a loss as tomorrow marks 3 weeks since it was stolen. I swear, Jason and I have done nothing but talk about cars, prices, numbers, etc. for the past few days. Somehow, I expected a bit of relief from that pressure.

Instead, when the lady calls Jason, she says that she got a report that the car was found on the 22nd. Um...news to us... So roller coaster of emotions going on. Turns out that only the license plate was found. For real??? Could they not have figured that out first? We don't know how long it will take for them to determine the value of my car and to get a check now. Could be tomorrow, could be Monday.

I just know I'll be so very glad for all of this to be over with.


Dreading Dreadmill 
Anyway, the gray day turned into severe storms and tornado warnings. Not exactly ideal conditions for an outdoor training run. I'm crazy, but not stupid. So I hit the dreadmill. And today it definitely had a dread factor. I think mostly because of all the car "stuff" weight on me, the gray day, and then the thought of more steady state than intervals.

I know, shut up and stop the bitching and get it done...and I did of course because I somehow have this crazy ability to suck it up when I just shut up about it. Doesn't mean I enjoyed it any more of course (humph).

Anyway, the plan called for 6 miles, 4 x 2:00 incline intervals, 6 pickups. I did 4 miles, the intervals, pickups, and another mile for a total of 7 miles. It was crazy running and watching the storm blowing in. Kind of scary actually. The gym is on the 29th floor and the window were actually shaking. Definitely made for an interesting run.


I got home and hit my yoga mat and TriggerPoint Therapy Kit before going to finally get cleaned up.

Tempeh Thursday 
While I was getting cleaned up, Jason made some Toasted Tempeh & Black Bean Burritos. 

I am using a recycled picture as we just had these last week ;-) Oh, and I'm starvin'

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
