Fun Facts Friday - Quirks

We finally made it to Friday. Even better? It's a rest day for me too. Though, I was up before the sun because someone (ahem the hubby) decided randomly to finally go to swim....on a Friday morning...after we've gotten up and run in the dawn hours twice this week.

I'm just joking really. I'm glad he hit the swim class. It's something he always enjoyed - enough to get out of bed by 5 am three days a week! Neither of us are really morning people so it's gotta be something we REALLY want to do to get up and out before the sun is up.

This morning, on the short little drive to work, the DJs were having people call in with some of their most unusual quirks. I thought that would make for a fun Fun Facts Friday list. We ALL have those little oddities that make us who we are right? Oh, yes, no denying that one. So today we've got Fun Facts Fridays - Quirks:
  • Horrible habit of picking cuticles
  • Obsessed with license plate expiration dates - can spot an out-of-date tag like it was my job
  • Numbers - hate them really, but if I start counting I can't seem to stop and will pick up at any place along the way - example running and I might start counting down seconds and even if I stop counting, I'll pick back up randomly. Make sense? Please say yes.
  • Touching clothes/objects - I'm very tactile and walk through stores touching everything. 
  • I'm also texture oriented when it comes to food - like the flavor of mangoes but hate them because they're mushy (to me). I like Granny Smith apples because of their firmness.
  • I want to be a complete neat freak - but I'm too lazy to always follow through. My closet is color organized, but I never make my bed.
  • I pretty much always have to sleep on the side of a bed nearest a bathroom. 
  • I prefer to sit in classrooms in seats nearest the door - though I'd like to be up front, I need to be near a door.
  • Movie theater seats gross me out. 
  • I won't drink out of a glass if a bug got in it, but would drink wine if my dog drank out of it. Ewwww right ;-)
Ok - your turn. What are some quirks that make you...you?

Daily To-Enjoy List
  • Date night - no Pizza Friday, going out for light apps/dinner then Arts Center event
  • Rest day - I'm all over this one

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
