No Run on a Soggy Saturday

This morning it was hard to get up and get going. It was chilly (only 56 degrees) and gray. Very dreary. And then the bottom fell out and it just started pouring rain. Jason and I had planned on getting in a run together before heading up to Fayetteville (about 3 hours away) and the weather was just not cooperating. T

It was really kind of strange not getting up and heading out for a long Saturday run, which is what I've become used to. Though, I must say I am glad I wasn't planning on 12 miles in this crappy weather. Guess the whole rearranging of plans worked out for the best after all.

After about 45 minutes of waiting around for the weather to clear, we finally just had to admit we weren't going to get in a run unless we hit the gym. Now, had it been warmer, I would have gladly gone out in the rain because it was just the "right" type of rain - if that makes any sense at all. So, for the first time in who the hell know how long, I'm taking a 2nd rest day AND on a Saturday.

Will readily admit that I'm not happy about it. It's throwing me way off schedule (and I was already off schedule as is). I was determined to get in the mileage according to my half plan, and that's not going to happen now.

So, now we're finishing packing up the car and about to be on our way to Fayetteville to hang out with friends and watch the game.

Happy Saturday!

Daily To-Enjoy List:
  • Morning run with hubby (nixed thanks to rain)
  • Spending day with friends

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
