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 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.

Lisa's (RunWiki) husband completed a 27 mile endurance swim.

Carla (aka MizFit) gave away her Strength (A must-read post)

Mrs. StuftMama herself is back to running - slowly but surely after a run-stopping injury.
