Fun for Friday - Running and a Knock-Knock Joke

TGIF everyone! Don't know about you guys, but I am definitely looking forward to the is long weekend. I have plans to be both very productive, but also very lazy at the same time. My pool is calling to me ;-)

This morning Jason and I woke up dark and early for a run. He's been running about 1.5 miles with me then he will finish up his prescribed miles on his own. Yep, I've got him on an official training plan. In fact, I think I heard him uttering curse words at and about me on our bike ride yesterday evening. Something about lunges and quads.

When Jason and I split, I met up with Amy. Her plan was 5 miles, my plan was 6-8 leaning heavily towards the 8. But my legs were crazy heavy at first, so I thought it may end up 6 after all. It was hot and really humid. Summer has returned to us once again.

But, we fell into conversation and a good pace and my legs loosened up. In the end, she got in 7 miles and I finished out at 9. So much for 5 and 6-ish huh? So that was my TGIF Run - similar to the Friday Happy Dance in enthusiasm.

Since it is Friday, that means Fun for Friday. This week's post is inspired by a tweet from last week. Last Friday I had tweeted about Laura's #strangebutgood Jicama and Tofu Nachos. You really must check out her recipes by the way.


It had been a long week, my mind was moving slow and it took me a minute (or two) to get the joke. I said as much, and she said that it was her favorite one. 

So, that got me to thinking about jokes, my favorite jokes, but knock-knock jokes to be more specific. I don't tend to remember one-liners and jokes. They just don't stick with me. But when I was a kid, my dad and bought my sister and me a book of knock-knock jokes. 

To this day, I still remember dad telling this one over and over, and us giggling every time:

Knock Knock.
Who's There?
Anastasia.
Anastasia Who?
Anastasia wagon got fo doors.

Do you remember jokes and one-liners? What about favorite knock-knock joke?

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…

My Home "Gym", Super Saturday With Quinoa Granola Bars

My Home "Gym"
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I had a request to do a post about my home gym. After mulling it over, I thought it was a really great idea. I can show everyone that you can indeed get really great results without having to spend a fortune on a home gym. Don't get me wrong of course, I would LOVE to have the money and room to have a treadmill, a nice weight machine set up, squat rack, even a barbell. Yes, you read that, no barbell (for now). I don't' even have a bar to do chin-ups or pull-ups. The ones that are supposed to fit every doorway do not in fact fit doorways built in 1890 apparently.

I must also say that I do have a gym membership that I almost only use for the cardio equipment. It was not until this January that I actually did weights at the gym. So, while I do have gym access, I still choose my home "gym" mostly out of convenience. 

Back to my gym: I also wish I had a much larger room. The room used for weights is rat…

Tex-Mex Quinoa Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Pumped Up Workout
I'll readily admit that I did not want to go to the gym today. I had no real excuses to not go though. I was just feeling lazy to be honest. But, I did myself a favor and made myself go. I knew I'd regret it if I didn't go.

I think part of my reluctance stems from a bit of boredom. I've gotten into a rut again with workouts. That and sometimes I just am flat out tired of seeing the inside of that place. But, that part aside, boredom all the way. So, I decided to try to do something a little different for my biceps/triceps workout. It's nothing earth-shattering. But it's a switch up from my typical 3 different supersets done as 3 sets of 8 reps....yawn.

So, today I did 4 sets of 8 reps for two supersets then I did dropsets at the end starting with heaviest weight for 6 reps, then increasing the number of reps by 2 as I decreased the weights. I did this 4 times (6, 8, 10, 12).
