Beach Vacation Day 3: Hot Run, Sun, Sand, Sushi & Sunsets

Hottest Run Ever
This morning we were up around 7 am. Guess going to bed by 9:30 will do that to you of course. We had started watching Breakfast at Tiffany's, but just couldn't stay awake.

So, up early, Jason decided he wanted to try to get out for a run with me after breakfast. So, we laced up the running shoes (I think it was a little after 8) and headed out for the hottest, most humid, heat index-of-100-degrees run I've ever done. Holy freaking crap. We made it about 4 miles before calling it quits.

I will say that it was nice to run up to the top of a bridge and look out over the inter coastal waterways. Now, getting to the top was a bit challenging of course. We also ran through a neighborhood/condo area we've never driven through. So running can be a nice way to really see a city. As long as it's not going to kill you of course. I did hit the elliptical for 5 minutes to sort of ease out my legs then I did abs from Cathe's High Reps DVD.

Sun, Sushi & Sunsets
After we got cleaned up - yes we had to clean up before going to the beach because we were that gross from the run - we packed up the cooler with lunch, snacks, and a few adult beverages (and tons of water) and headed down to the beach for the day.
We stayed on the beach from just after 10 am until about 2:45 before deciding to go get cleaned up. We had planned on having cocktails and sushi at this fun little place across from our condo called The Jelly Fish Bar. It had just opened up four years ago, when we first started staying in this condo. We're really glad it's been able to stay open. Not all beach restaurants make it. This place seems to have become a local fave though.
I knew I wanted the edamame and some wakame. I also ordered a cocktail I ordered last year. It's their signature cocktail, The Jellyfish. I must say, it was not the same at all. I looked back at last year's post even just to verify. And realized I hadn't even ordered the same cocktail because that one was no longer on the menu, but they were very very similar in descriptions.
 
 
 
So, I guess they did away with the Comb Jellyfish and just make a different one called The Jellyfish. It wasn't very good at all. I was really disappointed and ended up I letting Jason finish it for me. Do you ever just get your heart set on something you've had before? I didn't even want to order a different cocktail to be honest. All I wanted was that goodness I had last year ;-)

I ordered the vegetable roll and Jason got a volcano and a tuna roll. For me, the best part was still the wakame. Don't know what my obsession is with that stuff, but I love it.

Full, and lazy feeling, we spent the rest of the evening just sitting out on the balcony. It can be so much fun to people watch, as well as ocean watch.
 
 
 
The sunset was absolutely gorgeous last night. Everything had a beautiful pink hue.

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
