Resting & Relaxing & Doggy Sitting

So today I opted for a rest day. While I would have loved to have gotten in a run this morning, I was just exhausted. I've run 3 days in a row and done 3 days of weights. In other words, 3 days of 2-a-days.

I could have run, but I'm fairly certain it would have been a pretty crappy one. My legs were heavy, my upper body sore, and my mind was ready for a vacation.

During lunch Jason and I had to run over and pick up our friends' dog. We're doggy sitting for a few days - Bella the Beagle. She's really a good dog, so it's not a hassle at all. In fact, our dogs will be pretty worn out after she goes home, so it's kind of a win-win ;-)

I had a hair appointment this afternoon and had to leave work a little early. But that also gave me plenty of time to get to the grocery store and still avoid the after work rush crowd. I will say that our Kroger is so sad compared to the Publix in Florida.

Clearly, no one wants to be working there, they keep changing the products they carry and don't carry, and the baggers...well...the lady today was probably later 60's, incredibly slow, but very happy to tell me she put ALL the cans into one of my recyclable bags. Oh, ok. Thank you. That'll make it super easy for me to haul into the house (rolling eyes).

Anyway, Jason and I are planning on running in the morning so he decided to hit up the afternoon master's swim class this evening. That means I have a free evening to myself. I should be cleaning, but instead I'm going to paint my nails and catch up on Real Housewives of Orange County.
 

Dinner will be super super simple: loaded sweet potato. The only thing easier would probably be cereal ;-)

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 these days…

PJs n Pizza Recap

What Happened Last Night?
This morning I woke up first at 6:20 when Maddie decided she wanted out of her kennel and to be downstairs. The second time was 8:09 when Heath decided he wanted out of his kennel and downstairs to eat. I won't like, I would like to (needed to) have slept another two hours. It was a little slow going after last night.

Sign of a good party would be my first tweet of the day:  I'm thinking there is a bird in the house...what the hell happened last night???

Yep, found bird poop where bird poop most definitely should not be. Still have not found said bird however.

It should go without saying that last night was a total blast. It was so fun having everyone just be relaxed and comfy in jammies. I am not known for letting loose often, but I definitely went with it last night. There was a bit (lot) of wine consumed, pizza devoured and even some dancing.












Words of Wisdom

After talking about being stressed yesterday, I thought I would take today to re-read and share some quotes that I find inspiring and energizing. I don't often post a lot of quotes, but sometimes, they really can help change your perspective or give you a new outlook on things.

Are you a quote person? I'd love to hear your favorite quote.





And I can't forget Way to Go Wednesday. Here are my shout outs for the week. Who do you want to give a shout out to?

Kat from Sneakers and Fingerpaints just passed her NASM exam.
