Thoughts and Thanks

Today - well this week - I've had a lot on my mind. Too much really. Too many worries, frustrations, upsets. But I've also had things to be thankful for of course.

I thought I'd do a little Things I'm Thinking and Thankful For post today. Just sort of random, bear with me.

I'm thankful that I prepped the tofu for the Pho Jason made last night so that I could spend the needed time studying for my ISSA Personal Trainer Certification.
 

My head is going to explode from all the new information I'm having to learn with the personal trainer cert. I should have paid more attention during biology.

I've passed the first 2 quizzes, but I'm not sure how well I'll do with more written and detailed questions - insert one of the worries that's crept in.

I'm thankful that my boss is letting me work from home 2 days a week right now. It's helping me not feel so entirely fatigued - which is good since I've not been sleeping this week. It also makes it easier when I'm getting down.

I'm thankful that it's sunny today.

I'm thankful to have a rundate set with my running partner after work.

Will I ever not feel aches and pains with running - let alone the exhaustion I get right now. I want to just get out and run and not worry if my feet are going to hate me the next day or my piriformis is going to keep me up at night, or that I can't run the next half marathon.

I'm thankful that I can at least get out and run. Mentally necessary.

What are some of your thoughts or thanks for the day?

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
