Running and Way to Go Wednesday

Weather and Running
I hope everyone is having a good week so far. Monday started off with great weather - actually felt like spring. Jason and I got in a good, quick 4-mile run at lunch. It was sunny and about 70 degrees, which felt insanely warm considering the week before I had been running in tights, long sleeves, gloves, and ear coverings.

Though, it was a much needed, mood-boosting run so it was worth it. Definitely nicer than my run on Friday or Sunday. Friday morning's run looked like this:

And also included a run-in with a goose that has it out for me, similar to this
My dad sent this to me as a cruel joke.
There is this one white goose near a park I run through that has run after me 4 or 5 times now. Friday I was so focussed on the storms rolling in that he almost got me.

Sunday's run was stuck inside on the 'mill because of storms. So Monday's run was a nice change of pace. Today I have a run planned with my running partner. But the skies are looking more like Sunday. Not sure if I'll just end up cold and sopping wet or suck it up and hit the old 'mill.

What's your threshold for running outside? It's in the low 40's, windy, and threatening rain. To go or not to go (outside) is the question ;-)

Way to Go Wednesday
Onto something more important than a dilema about the dreadmill - Way to Go Wednesday shout outs.

Heather from Through Heather's Looking Glass got another PR at the Crescent City Classic 10K.

Lindsay at Cotter Crunch for reminding me/us to rearrange our plates.

Kristina at Spabettie for the ever so important reminder that life is too short for so many vague plans.

Leah for finding humor during a very trying time and for an apparently hugely successful turnout for her reading at Tales from the South.

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
