Group Rid & Letters to Self

Spin Day
Today was spin for me. Though it was another gorgeous day out there. I definitely needed something other than running I'll admit. Unfortunately, just as spin started, so did the onset of a migraine. I stuck out the class. But I know that it certainly didn't help the migraine situation, and neither did my Imitrex.

My head was hurting so bad by the time I got to the medicine I just wanted to rip the packaging apart. I have no idea why it comes in huge freaking card that you have to tear into rather than a bottle with a cap that someone in pain might still be able to figure out. I have come to the conclusion that the person who designed the packaging has never had a migraine before.

Letter Day
Since I'm not thinking exactly clearly today, I thought I might try to do something a little light-hearted. It's either that or the next thing you see is that we're having fajitas tonight and are supposed to meet up with friends for a little celebration before her wedding this Saturday (she's not had any showers other than one at work). Anyway, I thought I'd do "letters" (bascially just thoughts to myself).
Dear Legs,
Where have we gone wrong? There was a time when I was easily running 6 and 7 miles and not feeling it the next day. Now you're betraying me, and I am not exactly happy with this turn of events.

So for the next run, can we please come to a compromise. You are only allowed to be sore when I am running an excess of 7 miles.

Thanks so much,
Me
Dear Migraine,
I really have no time for you...ever. We're over.

Sincerely,
Me
Dear Arms,
I really appreciate the way you are able to get through one of my crazy workouts. I love how you continue to lift even when the brain has other ideas, even when you're shaking, you push on. Maybe you can talk to Legs and get them straightened out for me.

Love,
Me

What letter(s) would you write today?

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 these days…

PJs n Pizza Recap

What Happened Last Night?
This morning I woke up first at 6:20 when Maddie decided she wanted out of her kennel and to be downstairs. The second time was 8:09 when Heath decided he wanted out of his kennel and downstairs to eat. I won't like, I would like to (needed to) have slept another two hours. It was a little slow going after last night.

Sign of a good party would be my first tweet of the day:  I'm thinking there is a bird in the house...what the hell happened last night???

Yep, found bird poop where bird poop most definitely should not be. Still have not found said bird however.

It should go without saying that last night was a total blast. It was so fun having everyone just be relaxed and comfy in jammies. I am not known for letting loose often, but I definitely went with it last night. There was a bit (lot) of wine consumed, pizza devoured and even some dancing.












Words of Wisdom

After talking about being stressed yesterday, I thought I would take today to re-read and share some quotes that I find inspiring and energizing. I don't often post a lot of quotes, but sometimes, they really can help change your perspective or give you a new outlook on things.

Are you a quote person? I'd love to hear your favorite quote.





And I can't forget Way to Go Wednesday. Here are my shout outs for the week. Who do you want to give a shout out to?

Kat from Sneakers and Fingerpaints just passed her NASM exam.

Lisa's (RunWiki) husband completed a 27 mile endurance swim.

Carla (aka MizFit) gave away her Strength (A must-read post)

Mrs. StuftMama herself is back to running - slowly but surely after a run-stopping injury.
