Weights, HIIT & Painting

No More Spin (for today)
My poor legs couldn't take another day of spin today. I had thought I would do legs today, but seriously not happening. So, I went with my plan B workout for upper body (back, shoulders, chest) plus a short HIIT session.

I did this HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout as a way to engage the muscles that I had just used lifting, sort of as a burnout I suppose rather than doing something like dropsets or 21's. And it was a nice switch from the tabata style intervals that I've been doing.

I only did this 3 times through before calling it done. It's amazing how long 40 seconds can feel by the way.

Busy Day
I did have a doctor's appointment and errands to run this afternoon. At least it was sunny today. Errands don't seem quite as bad when it's pretty out.

But, then it was back to painting the gym room and giving the house a major cleaning. Unfortunately, the HVAC repair guys aren't done. Two days has turned into four. Of course that means there's lots of cleanup that can't be done yet.

It took me about 2 1/2 hours, but I did finish painting the gym room - well, the walls. We still have to do the ceiling and trim work, but that will come later. I also managed to get rugs vacuumed and some rooms mopped. I'll have to wait until tomorrow when the guys are completely gone before mopping the rest.

I will say we lucked out big time. February is not typically the time to replace your heat and air. We've not had heat upstairs all week, but when it's upper 50's and even 60 like today, it's not too bad.

I wish I could say I had time to throw together a great dinner. At this point in time, I'm eating a bowl of cereal. I bet you never thought you'd hear me admit that one huh ;-)

Daily To-Enjoy List:
  • No rain
  • Good workout
  • Finishing painting

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
