Weights Over a Run on Sunday

Working Out
So today I ended up ditching my half marathon training plan again. It called for 4 miles. It was a gorgeous, warm day, but really windy (gusting 18 mph). I just couldn't seem to get excited about running. So, I ended up doing chest, legs, boxing, and abs instead.

Pushups - 24
Flat bench chest flyes into press - 3x8
Pushups with toes on step - 16
Squats into Plie Squats with low-end pulse - 3x8
Incline bench flyes into press - 3x8
Staggered bench press - 12
Rear leg elevated lunges into deadlifts - 3x8
Firewalkers - 6
Calf raises - 2x16

I did the upper body only from combos 1 and 2 of Cathe's MMA Boxing then abs from High Reps. I did stretch for a bit after the workout before getting cleaned up.

Chores & Kitchen Boycott
Jason was nice enough to go to the grocery store while I was working out, then he headed out for a bike ride. In the meantime, I did laundry (washed, not folded mind you), made some hummus, and spent about 3 hours in our study/office shredding, filing, and tossing things.

It ended up being in the upper 60's, so when Jason got back he suggested we might go find a patio to sit out on for a drink. We did that and realized that even though it was nice and warm, the wind made it less warm. Also, there was a crying baby that couldn't be consoled. I know those things happen, but when you are childless, it's really hard to ignore. I really kind of felt sorry for the mom to be honest.

I had thought I was going to make a nice dinner tonight, but I think I'm going to boycott cooking. I feel like I've spent way too much time in the kitchen either cooking and/or cleaning and I'm just done. So not clue what's for dinner. Cereal? Right now Jason has his head in cabinets and is just randomly naming off things. So with that, I'm signing off....

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…

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.












Words of Wisdom

After talking about being stressed yesterday, I thought I would take today to re-read and share some quotes that I find inspiring and energizing. I don't often post a lot of quotes, but sometimes, they really can help change your perspective or give you a new outlook on things.

Are you a quote person? I'd love to hear your favorite quote.





And I can't forget Way to Go Wednesday. Here are my shout outs for the week. Who do you want to give a shout out to?

Kat from Sneakers and Fingerpaints just passed her NASM exam.
