Redeeming Run & Grilling Out

Redeeming Run
Today turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous, sunny day. For a change we didn't have winds gusting hard enough to nudge you over just standing. Of course this meant a run. I just couldn't pass up the opportunity.

I will admit that I was honestly nervous about running today. Saturday's windy, humid, hot run kind of scarred me a bit. I know it's a little silly, but if you run and have had a bad one, then you know how it goes.

Thankfully, I had a redeeming 6.5 mile run. It was a little warm, but the breeze was just about perfect. It was a little strong on the return, but I was getting pretty warm and didn't mind at that point. 

I got home, stretched and rolled on my Triggerpoint Therapy Kit. Luckily, I had no pain during my run other than a little bit of calf tightness.

Grilling Out
Since it was so nice out, we decided we needed to grill. We had plenty of veggies. I was opting for a Grilled Veggie & Tempeh Salad and Jason was wanting a Grilled Veggie Sandwich. Either way you couldn't go terribly wrong of course.

I ended up grilling red and green bell peppers, squash, and zucchini. I grilled sweet potato "fries" for the side. For the sandwiches, I made up a really quick and easy roasted red bell pepper hummus, melted some almond cheese and added some spinach, serving on Ezekiel bread.
 

This was a nice, summer-time meal. The Ezekiel bread worked really well for this grilled sandwich too. It held up nicely. I always hate it when the bread gets soggy and falls apart.

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
