Weights, Tabata & Veggie Burgers

Weights & Tabata 
If I had time to workout tomorrow, I think I would have ended up taking today as a rest day. But, I am glad that I got my workout done and look forward to the break tomorrow - and on Friday too ;-)

I started with about 20 minutes on the elliptical before hitting the weights for back and shoulders. I went with supersets of 3x8 unless noted.

SS#1
Assisted chinups - dropped the weight today
Overhead shoulder press

SS#2
Underhand barbell rows - increased weight
Lateral raise

SS#3
Pullovers - 10 reps
Front raise

I finished off the workout with 3 rounds of a low-impact kettlebell workout done tabata style. I ended up doing 3 rounds for a total of 15 minutes.

PT & Burgers
After work I had another round of PT. She did have a new exercise for me to try in order to strengthen the deeper muscles of my feet. She had read a new article discussing the idea that the previous strength exercises for plantar fasciitis might not truly be getting to the root of the problem.

She also gave me some new exercises for my piriformis syndrome. I apparently have some muscle deficiencies in my hips that are likely the cause of many of my issues.

After PT I hit the grocery store and spent 10 minutes driving around the dang parking lot trying to find an open space. This was after 6 and still packed. Highly annoyed to say the least.

So, dinner is extremely late...for us. Just going with something simple: homemade lentil burgers that I had in the freezer and baked sweet potato fries (of course).

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
