Fun Facts Friday - The Non-Movie Buff

Fun Facts Friday - The Non-Movie Buff
Can I get a high five or a "hell yes" for Friday Rest Day?! Definitely ready for the rest day today. I don't think I could have cranked out one more mile, lifted one more weight, or done one more standing climb (spin class). Heck, abs seem like too much work ;-)

We don't really have anything special going on today. Just a typical Friday for us really. We're so exciting I know you're all jealous. Chances are we'll have Pizza Friday and maybe (but not likely) watch a movie. We did actually watch Phoebe in Wonderland last night. I really enjoyed that one.

...And this of course is my segue into Fun Facts Friday.

"...it's Friday; you ain't got no job... and you ain't got shit to do." Ok, so that's not totally true at all, but it's one of the few movie quotes I know (from Friday).

I am not really a movie buff at all. I almost never remember the names of movies, let alone quotes - unless it's from the 80's or 90's as Jason would interject. I almost envy people who can rattle off movie quotes. I sort of feel left out to be honest. How is it that I can't remember any movie lines?

Jason, however, really enjoys watching movies - though he's not a movie quoter either thankfully. I just have a hard time sitting still for that long. It really has to grab my attention or it just seems like such a waste of time. And maybe that's it, my mind is elsewhere so I miss out on fun lines and quips.

So, for Fun Facts Friday, I thought I'd list out the movies that I actually have seen more than once, that I can quote lines from even. They may not be the best movies, definitely not all classics either, but for whatever reason, I latched onto them. Which is really kind of funny considering how I typically feel about movies.
  • Pretty Woman - Slippery little suckers (snail scene at restaurant) or I've got a runner in my pantyhose...I'm not wearing any pantyhose.
  • Friday - see quote above of course.
  • Heathers - I'll forever know the word "myriad" because of this movie.
  • Funny Farm - seriously love the scene where she eats the last apple that she said didn't exist.
  • Reality Bites - Don't boggart the can...man...
  • Pirates of the Caribbean (1-3, love me some Johnny) - RUM
So, are you a repeat movie watcher? Are you a movie quoting guru? Or, what's some cheesy movie you'll admit to rewatching???

Daily To-Enjoy List
Friday is just one big "to-enjoy" isn't it?
  • Movie with hubby (watched Phoebe in Wonderland last night)
  • Rest day (definitely enjoying this)
  • Pizza Friday
  • Pool lounging 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…

Pumped Up Workout
I'll readily admit that I did not want to go to the gym today. I had no real excuses to not go though. I was just feeling lazy to be honest. But, I did myself a favor and made myself go. I knew I'd regret it if I didn't go.

I think part of my reluctance stems from a bit of boredom. I've gotten into a rut again with workouts. That and sometimes I just am flat out tired of seeing the inside of that place. But, that part aside, boredom all the way. So, I decided to try to do something a little different for my biceps/triceps workout. It's nothing earth-shattering. But it's a switch up from my typical 3 different supersets done as 3 sets of 8 reps....yawn.

So, today I did 4 sets of 8 reps for two supersets then I did dropsets at the end starting with heaviest weight for 6 reps, then increasing the number of reps by 2 as I decreased the weights. I did this 4 times (6, 8, 10, 12).

Piriformis Update & Grilled Veggie Salad

New Piriformis Exercises
Today wasn't too terrible for a Monday. Of course, I did leave a little early. That always helps huh ;-) I had another round of physical therapy today. My PT has been really researching piriformis syndrome and found an interesting article that discusses the use of McKenzie Exercises - typically used for back pain.

I have started adding in low back extensions (one of the exercises) but now have a whole new list of exercises to add into my workout rotations. But, if it helps, I'll do it. I also asked her about dry needling (thanks Sarena), which is sort of similar to acupuncture, but is more about trigger point and intramuscular stimulation.

And I'm glad I asked because the timing is uncanny. One of the doctor's in the clinic happens to be going to get certified this weekend. They both believe that I am a prime candidate for the procedure. So we'll see how that goes. Kind of scared because I hate hate hate needles.

Have any of you tried dry…
