Still Resting and Way to Go Wednesday

Well, this week is pretty boring in terms of workouts or meals or anything really. Basically, I've been parked on the couch since Saturday. I did go to the doctor Monday AND again Tuesday.

The good news is that my sinus woes are just allergies and not an infection. And they are starting to clear up finally. So I no longer need this fancy contraption, though it sure would have come in handy.

The bad news is that I have a very angry lymph node right at my left clavicle. Not a normal spot for a node to be inflamed due to allergies. Note to self - do not look up such things on the internet. You'll scare the piss out of yourself.

So I've now had 2 very very painful antibiotic shots, have sore bum cheeks, and am on a round of antibiotics as well as pain medication. I am supposed to go back daily to have the infected area checked and if it doesn't start to get better then we'll move on to scans and probably other really fun tests. Good times.

But, I don't want to be a Debbie Downer. So moving on to something much more positive and inspiring - Way to Go Wednesday. These guys deserve shout outs for just being plain awesome.

Mr. Pavement runner for kicking some major butt with his first 50 mile endurance race.

Tiffany (Running Hutch) for running her first ultra - the Ridgecrest 50K.

Meg at RunFitKin for an awesome PR at the California International Marathon.

Kierston for going back to her Taekwon-Do roots.

Your turn - who do you want to give a shout out to?

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
