Tuesday Treasures - Inspiring Blog Posts

I thought I'd do something a little different today. I could blather on about how I plan on running after work, about the weather. Actually, right now I'm really worried about our little Heath Man. He got really sick yesterday and is at the vet today.

I'm trying not to panic, so I thought I'd take a positive route and share some great posts I've read so far this week. I truly love all the inspiration I get each day from so many of you.



Candy Fit reminds us not to fall into The Comparison Trap. Such an important reminder.

Laura at Mommy Run Fast talks about accentuating the positive and shares how she manages to stay positive during down times.

Carla at MizFitOnline shares are thoughts about eating in In A Food Fantasy What Would You Eat?  Such a great perspective, always insightful.

Jessica at EatDrinkBreatheSweat reminds us that we all need our Me Workout Time.

Lisa at Run Wiki wrote a beautiful post "Pain Does Not Define Me," in relation to her training for the Boston Marathon.

Tiffany at Matters of Course shares how "Stuff" is a Four Letter Word. And I'm thinking she's right!

Heidi at Banana Buzzbomb asks the question "If Fitness is About Your Health Then Why do You Hurt Yourself?"A really great post and perspective on working out and pushing too hard, too often.

Are there any great posts you've read recently? Feel free to share!

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
