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 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.
