Fun For Friday - Loving, Thankful For, Enjoying

Happy Friday friends. Don't know about you, but I was beginning to wonder if this day would make a appearance this week. It just felt like the week was dragging on forever. I don't know if part of it was getting in some early morning runs again or what.

What I do know is that it's Fun For Friday! I don't have any brilliant inspiration or even a coherent topic. It's just a random, "fun" post. We don't need anything serious today right?
  • This showed up in the mail yesterday and it made my Thursday. It's Cathe's latest series - XTrain. I can't wait to try out the workouts and share my thoughts with everyone! 

  • Soup has been "what's for dinner" a few times this week. So, I have some new recipes to share next week for a Creamy Tomato Soup and a Tofu Noodle Soup
  • I am so very lucky to have met such a wonderful running partner and friend. We got in 10 miles before work today. Despite the freezing temps and then the fog so heavy we were dripping wet, it was a great way to start the day and kick off the weekend.
  • I am also lucky to have a hubby who will run with me. This week we enjoyed a beautiful sunrise together - again, not a bad way to start off a day.
  • You know how they say to get rid of something you haven't worn in a year? Well, don't. I have on a sweater I bought 3 years ago and had yet to figure out how to wear it (cardigan type deal). Finally figured it out!
  • Ice can be a runners BFF. Oh, and a golf ball and Triggerpoint Therapy Kit. 
  • I am officially addicted to The Clymb. They have some fantastic deals on fitness apparel, gear, and more. I just got in a new spiffy cycling outfit I can't wait to wear! And I ordered some more Mizuno running tops. 
What are some of the things you're loving, thankful for, or enjoying this week?

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
