Fun Facts Friday - Sometimes

Wow, than you Friday for finally making an appearance. Show of hands if you thought it'd never show up too!

Rather than dwell on the crazy week that's now in the past, I thought I'd just jump right into Fun Facts Friday. Let's put the week behind us and have a little fun shall we?

I'm taking a cue from my friend Jessica. She did a post she called Sometimes (Revisited). Mine isn't exactly revisited, just a list of Sometimes.

Sometimes...

...these cuties really are as sweet as they appear here (the dogs not Jason).

...they can be rotten like coming into the kitchen to see Maddie polishing off a to-do style notepad with a magnetic strip on the back. Lip-smacking good apparently.

...they like to play the in-and-out game standing at the back door but going out only to randomly bark, repeat 5 times before they might actually potty.

...they love to get toilet paper or tissues and have both figured out how to push a basket under the coffee table back far enough to get into it to get to the box of tissues we have "hidden."

Sometimes...

...I really enjoy doing the cooking.

...I enjoy it even more when Jason steps in so I can have time to study or *gasp* do nothing.

Sometimes...

...I think I have it all figured out.

...I realize I don't and nowhere close.

...I want to run and it turns out to be less than stellar.

...I don't really want to run and it's the best thing ever.

...I'm too lazy to play pool on the pool table in my own house. That can be a lot of effort you know.

Sometimes...

...I'm amazed still that I have run 4 half marathons. Especially considering I never thought I could run more than a mile period.

...It's not a matter of time, it's a matter of who you crossed the finish line with.
...I smile for no reason.


What are some of your "sometimes?"

  1. What a cute post!
    Your doggies are just so darling!
    I love when Tony cooks too. It's so nice having someone help out when you feel like being a bum. ;)

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…

Pumped Up Workout
I'll readily admit that I did not want to go to the gym today. I had no real excuses to not go though. I was just feeling lazy to be honest. But, I did myself a favor and made myself go. I knew I'd regret it if I didn't go.

I think part of my reluctance stems from a bit of boredom. I've gotten into a rut again with workouts. That and sometimes I just am flat out tired of seeing the inside of that place. But, that part aside, boredom all the way. So, I decided to try to do something a little different for my biceps/triceps workout. It's nothing earth-shattering. But it's a switch up from my typical 3 different supersets done as 3 sets of 8 reps....yawn.

So, today I did 4 sets of 8 reps for two supersets then I did dropsets at the end starting with heaviest weight for 6 reps, then increasing the number of reps by 2 as I decreased the weights. I did this 4 times (6, 8, 10, 12).

Piriformis Update & Grilled Veggie Salad

New Piriformis Exercises
Today wasn't too terrible for a Monday. Of course, I did leave a little early. That always helps huh ;-) I had another round of physical therapy today. My PT has been really researching piriformis syndrome and found an interesting article that discusses the use of McKenzie Exercises - typically used for back pain.

I have started adding in low back extensions (one of the exercises) but now have a whole new list of exercises to add into my workout rotations. But, if it helps, I'll do it. I also asked her about dry needling (thanks Sarena), which is sort of similar to acupuncture, but is more about trigger point and intramuscular stimulation.

And I'm glad I asked because the timing is uncanny. One of the doctor's in the clinic happens to be going to get certified this weekend. They both believe that I am a prime candidate for the procedure. So we'll see how that goes. Kind of scared because I hate hate hate needles.

Have any of you tried dry…
