Running, Grilling and Lots of Hummus

Hummus Quesadillas
Last night I ended up using some of that Artichoke Hummus for quesadillas. I just spread it on some whole-wheat tortillas and topped with a small bit of Daiya Vegan Cheddar, spinach, and roasted red bell peppers. Yum.
 

We enjoyed the quesadillas while watching The Social Network. I had heard really great things about the movie, but I had no expectations. It was really pretty good though. Nothing exactly earth-shattering, but it kept my attention for the most part.

Spring? No It's Summer
Today was another almost summer-like day. We've sort of skipped spring and jumped right on into the beginning of summer with low 80's. I knew I wanted to get out for a run. But it was super windy, and did I mention 80 degrees? But the sunshine was calling my name. I couldn't imagine doing a workout indoors.

Note to self, running when it's 80 degrees, gusting winds after taking a Zyrtec D = tough. I felt dehydrated from the get go even though I had been chugging water all day. Of course this meant I needed to pee a lot. In fact, I needed to go when I got to the river trail. The port-a-potties were missing toilet paper. There is a real restroom about 3/4 mile into the trail, so I figured I could make a quick pit stop. DISGUSTING. How are people so freaking gross???? You can just imagine I'm sure without me going into detail.

Anyway, after that little detour, I got back on the trail. I kept praying for shade. There are usually a few spots that are shaded, but apparently not at the time I was down there because of the time change. I ended up going for 55 minutes total. Another note to self: start packing sunblock. My face is a bit pinkish and you can see the start of some sports bra tan lines (not so cute).


First Grilled Dinner of the Season
Since the weather was so warm, we decided it was time to fire up the grill. Jason picked up some portobellos the other day (the biggest portobellos I've ever seen). So we did grilled portobellos topped with spinach, roasted red bell peppers and some goat cheese.

 
This feels almost like a sin it's been so long since we've had goat cheese. Oh, I did use some of the Artichoke Hummus to spread on the buns. I also grilled up some sweet potato "fries" to go on the side. Perfect spring/summer meal!

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
