Sweat-tastic Spin & Dinner Made For Me

Sweat-tastic Spin
This morning I packed my gym bag for both a run or for a spin class. I had thought seriously about getting in another run after work. But honestly, my legs were kind of tired and the temps were climbing. I ended up going with spin - like that's easier on the legs somehow. I guess I'm just a serious glutton for punishment.

Holy freaking sweaty mess. Yikes. I don't know if it was just the Group Ride track being used today or the fact that it was already warm in the gym (or both), but I think I sweated less running in the humid 85-degree weather on Saturday than at spin today. There was track when I seriously wanted to curse (and rejoice) out loud when the interval was over.

I will say that the one HUGE issue I have with my gym is the lack of fans. I hear people complain about it, but for whatever reason, no fans ever seem to make an appearance. The way it's set up, the vents are all in the perimeters in the ceilings - the perimeters are mostly windows by the way. Not very helpful. I have always thought that ceiling fans would be helpful to at least circulate the air.

Does your gym provide fans? Do you like them or not? It seems people either have to have fans or air movement or absolutely hate it. I NEED it.

Worn Out 
I had some errands to run after work today. While I don't enjoy driving in the traffic, at least it was sunny and gorgeous out. But I will say it wasn't one of my smarter moves. I had a long day at work (long week so far actually) and was just worn out feeling. Then Whole Foods was packed - actually it was the parking lot that was the worst part.

I was really and truly not going to make anything for dinner. I know, I know, you don't believe me. But it's true. I was either going to indulge in cereal or have a sandwich of some sort. However, I came home to Jason in the kitchen.

He's been working late for the past few weeks, so I have been having to make dinner unless I wanted to eat really late. So...it was definitely a treat to not have to be thinking about what to make or actually making it.

I will say that he has two methods of cooking - he either takes the elaborate hard road or supremely easy road. Today it was the elaborate with stuffed zucchini, a roasted red bell pepper coulis, and salad.
 
 

I don't know the recipe just yet, but I know there was barley and sundried tomatoes in the zucchini. I'll try to get the recipe (if he remember what he did) tomorrow. Now I'm going to sit on the couch and try to relax. Happy Hump Day!

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
