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 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
