Crazy Busy But Enjoying

I must say that you probably be terribly disappointed in today's post. I've been incredibly busy and am in between "dates" for about 15 minutes.

I literally hit the ground running this morning and haven't stopped. I woke up insanely early (thank you Maddie). But I needed to get up and out early if I was going to run. I hit the river trail at 6:30 am. There was a nice breeze, but the humidity was insane. At 3 miles in, I realized I was running with an "I'll try" attitude not an "I will" attitude.

I had wanted to hit 8 miles, but early on I was already psyching myself out. I refocused and set my goal and went for it. Run, walk, crawl, I was going to hit 8 miles. And...I did. Overall, it was a really good run. I only had minor hip issues. Post-run, I still felt really good, no tightness or anything. Which was good considering the rest of the day.

With only about 20 minutes, I had to stretch, roll, shower, and hit the road again as we were due to meet my family at the lake (an hour away) by 9:30. I promise to post fun lake pictures tomorrow - mostly of niece and nephew "monster" tubing with their Uncle Jason.

Unfortunately, we couldn't stay as long as we would have liked. I had a lunch date with a dear friend that I haven't seen in years - far far too long. I was not going to pass up the opportunity to catch up with her. We met at 2:30 at a really nice little place called Capis for snacks basically.

We spent about 3 hours catching up and walking around the shopping center the restaurant was in. Three hours was definitely not enough time I must say. Of course, it never is when you're trying to cram about 7 years into an afternoon visit. :-(

I am now off to help a friend celebrate her 35th birthday. Again - I promise for a better post, with pictures tomorrow.

I promise to also reply to your fun comments from yesterday's post. I've been reading them, just not been at a computer to respond. Loving them. Definitely worth revisiting for laughs! I hope you all are having a great Saturday!

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
