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 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
