Where We Would Run

As I mentioned previously - and took way too long to put together - I wanted to take you all on a run (or walk) with me. The idea came from a post that Amanda (aka Miss Zippy) had done, and I just loved the idea, loved reading the other posts that came out of that idea as well.

So, here's where we'd go. We'd start off up hill, get that part out of the way first, well, until the return from the river, but I might not mention that part ;-)


Hopefully we'd have a beautiful sunrise as well. Even if we didn't, I'm sure we'd have a great run or walk though. If it was the first time we were meeting, it'd be impossible not to get lost in conversation. We do have some gorgeous architecture in the area, so I'd try to point that out.


And if you were new to the area, I'd want to take you up closer to the governor's mansion. It's a really nice section of the neighborhood with some of my favorite homes. 



I would definitely take you on a route that got us down near the river. Whether you're a fan of Bill Clinton or not, I'd definitely want to take you down near the Clinton Library. It's a really pretty area, lots of trees, great views, and views of the river of course.



The River Market area is full of restaurants, a few shops, some new construction as well. We'd end up having to make the ascent back home. We'd likely stop at this intersection, somehow we always end up stopping here. But sometimes, it's nice having to stop to catch your breath, especially when you're making the climb back home at the end of a run.


And there you have it. Our route together. Want to join me?

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
