Fun Facts Friday - Me in a Class

I guess all the walking we did last night really wore me out as I slept for 7 straight hours last night - something I never ever do. But, I still felt really tired and groggy all morning. Not really sure why other than maybe just being off routine.

We decided to schedule our lake run for after class rather than before. I knew I'd want to be outside and moving, and Jason would be ready to get out of the hotel too. Plus, since the temps aren't hot, we have that luxury for a change.

Today's lunch was so much better than yesterday's blah of a salad. I got the Garden Lentil Salad from Argo Tea (which is in the same building as our hotel). Um, wow. So full of flavor I can't even begin to describe it. I imagine that'll be lunch again for me next week.

Rather than waiting until late tonight to talk about the run or where we might end up eating, I'll do a recap of that tomorrow and move on to Fun Facts Friday. Sitting in class reminds me of college days. How on earth did I spend so much time sitting listening to lectures? Here are just some random facts about me in a class (particularly this class of course):
  • I normally like to site nearest to the door (this time we're front row but opposite side of the door)
  • Windows are bad for me - I've been watching the people in their offices next door 
  • I am always early to class
  • Chairs that spin are bad for me - I find myself swinging side to side like a kid
  • It looks like I am taking lots of detailed notes - I take notes to keep myself awake and it helps me retain the info more than just listening
  • I really hate group exercises
  • I always worry that I'm going to trip and fall if I have to get up mid-class for a bathroom break
  • I make lots of lists of things I want to do, see, places to look up, etc. 
So how are you in a class? Are you the good student or the ADHD kid? I'm sort of a combo of both I suppose.

Daily To-Enjoy List
  • Run by the lake
  • More Chicago sight-seeing
  • Mild temps

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.












Let's Have Coffee

If you're a regular blog reader, I'm sure you've seen similar posts, scenarios if you will, about what we might chat about or what I might say if we sat down and had coffee together.

I think these can be fun. Maybe fun isn't the right word choice exactly. But maybe it is? They're transparent, showing who the blogger really is ... if they're being honest of course. It's not often you truly get to sit down with the person behind the blog.


If we were to have coffee together ...

I would first let you know that I'm not a super fan of coffee. I drink mine with hot cocoa and it's mostly out of habit rather than the need for caffeine. I could forgo it on the weekends entirely.

Since we're talking coffee, I would also let you know that I've never ordered coffee from Starbucks and only once from a true coffee shop. I've only been into 2 Starbucks shops - the original in Seattle and one in town where I ordered a bottle of tea when meeting a friend. …
