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 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
