Deviating From Plans

Taper Run...Sort of
So today was supposed to be 2 miles with 4 1:00 intervals. It was sunny, I was stressed, and I deviated from the plan a bit. I ran down by the river (a lot windier than the weather reported), but it felt great - hello capri pants and short sports bra weather!

So, back to deviation....I ended up doing 2 miles, the intervals, and another 2 miles. It's supposed to be my taper week, so I did at least stop myself from going any farther, but I felt like I could have done another 2 miles so easily today. I suppose that 4.5 miles is short compared to the 8-milers I have been doing on Tuesdays.

So, I know I did more than I was supposed to do, but it was a much-needed stress-relieving run. I needed that jolt of sunshine too. 


Dinner Plans Delayed
I had planned on this great baked quinoa dish for dinner. I was excited about it. Had been planning it in my head all day. But like the running deviation, there was a dinner deviation.

I suppose the reason is worth it though. I got a car!!! I ended up getting a 2008 Infiniti G37 Sport. It was dark by the time we were done with everything, so pictures will come later. We didn't get home until about 7:50, no dinner yet, so we threw together some burritos and pretty much wolfed them down in record time.

Sorry for the super short, picture-free post. It's getting late and we're just now getting settled. We also have a car manual to read up on ;-)

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
