Valentine's Surprise & More Spin

Spin Day
Today was a super dreary, rainy day. Made it really difficult to peel myself out of bed. Somehow Jason did better than me and got up in time for his 5:30 swim class. I will say that I am at least glad it's not really cold out though. No snow, sleet, or ice to contend with. Just wet.

I ended up hitting spin again today. I had sort of thought about weights. But honestly, I really didn't feel up for weights or even looking at the elliptical for a warm up much less a cardio session. Definitely thankful I had spin as an option at least.

I definitely worked my booty off and got out some frustration during the workout. I was one hot mess after.

Valentine's Surprise & More Housework 
Remember when I said we didn't do anything for Valentine's Day? My gift was Jason going to spin class? Well, he totally surprised me with a gift certificate for a spa session with facial. I am not a big massage fan, but I adore a facial. I never splurge on that. I barely pay for a much-needed sports massage. But, he said he knew that I'd been a little stressed and deserved it. :-) Really, he is the best!

That was about the extent of celebrating though. Of course I felt bad that I hadn't gotten him anything and wasn't even making a nice dinner. All I did was to reheat some homemade veggie burgers that I keep in the freezer along with sweet potato fries. We watched an episode of Mike and Molly, then he went to Home Depot to pick up more texture spray for the ceiling and paint. Guess what we're doing tonight!

I do have physical therapy after work and some errands to run. Jason will probably get started priming the walls of the gym room. The plan is that I start Chipotle Tempeh Chili then help him finish any priming while the chili is simmering.

We'll definitely be eating dinner a lot later than normal. But, we have to get the walls primed today so I can start painting after work tomorrow. Anyone want to come help out???

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

Hump Day and More Pineapples

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
