Weekend Recap - Running, Cycling, Enjoying Life

I never really know how well-received weekend recap posts are, but I thought I'd do one anyway. I don't have any fantastic pictures to share, but I did have a pretty fantastic weekend. It was mostly about enjoying life, taking in the little things around me, taking in some amazing weather.

It started Friday evening when my sis came over with her kiddos to stay the night. They were crazy excited to stay with us. Jason played in the pool with C for a solid hour (maybe longer). I think they were both worn out.

While they played in the pool, I played Sorry with my sis and niece. I haven't played a board game in ages. I literally had to dust that one off. I'm so glad I've kept them all these years though. It was really fun playing with my niece. She's pretty competitive. I have no idea where that comes from ;-)

What was the most fun was seeing her really open up and just be silly and have fun. She's very much like me and often reserved and holds back. So to watch her open up and just be herself was a treat for me.

Saturday morning was a surprise with the temperature. We went from "lows" being mid-70's to 60 degrees. I couldn't wait to get out and run. The sky was that perfect Fall sky - pure blue, crisp air. Simply perfect. I had planned to do about 7 miles, but was so excited about the weather, I ended up with 9 miles done.

Sarah and the kids had to pack up and get back home, so we didn't really get to spend much time together Saturday. I did have a client to train though. We decided to take the workout to the park, and I'm so glad we did. She seemed to really enjoy the workout and being outside.

After doing several loads of laundry and dishes, I decided to sit out on the patio and read. I had no desire to be cooped up inside on such a gorgeous day.

Sunday was another beautiful day. Jason and I got in a 38-mile bike ride then indulged ourselves at a pizza place we enjoy. They've got really good pizzas, but also a nice patio to sit out on. The rest of the day was pretty lazy after that point. And I was completely ok with that. I made some homemade bread and pressed tofu to use during the week.

How was your weekend? Did you get to enjoy some incredible weather by chance?

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
