Seattle Day 3: Spinning, Running, Boating, Hiking

Sunday Recap
The morning started off chilly, but sunny. Denise and I ended up hitting Group Ride at 8am. She had never tried the class before, so she was excited to at least try it out. I was so happy we had that as an option. I didn't have warm enough running gear for a 40-degree run. It was a great class; the instructor was high-energy.

After we got back to the house, we loaded up their dog and the boys and hit Lincoln Park. The idea was to walk the dog and take in some gorgeous views. I decided to get in a short little run while we were there. Jason tried to get some pictures of the Olympic Mountain Range. It almost looks like clouds if you aren't paying attention.
 

Post walk/run, we headed back to their house and got cleaned up. The next stop of the day was the Fremont Market. We went the last time we were in town and really enjoyed it, so we thought it'd be fun to go back before heading out on their boat.

First Terron had to make sure we saw "The Troll." Then we went into the market. I was hoping to find some handmade jewelry or something fun like that. No luck this year. But it was still fun to just mill around.
 
 

After the market, we headed to the marina so we could go boating for the rest of the day.
 
 
 
The plan was to motor over to Blake Island's Tillicum Village. They have gorgeous hiking trails. So after relaxing on the boat for a bit, we set out for the hike. It took about 90 minutes, and the views were just gorgeous. Such different nature scenery from what we're used to.

We ended up making pizzas for dinner rather than grilling as it was getting late. I'll take Pizza Sunday with friends after an incredible day like this one any time.

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
