Fun For Friday - Confession Time


It's (finally) that day of the week again - Fun For Friday. It's been a LONG week, ok, it's been the same number of days as always, but it's felt long. Work has been busy and then there's that whole waking up at 5 am to run thing plus getting in my weight workouts either at lunch or after work.

So, I'm pretty tired by Friday. I did manage to get in one last early morning run today. It was one of those times when you do question your sanity though. The windchill was 22 degrees and the winds were crazy, gusting at 28 mph from the northwest. You never realize how often your route goes north or west until the wind is that direction.

Despite the weather, it was still a good run. The moon, in case you missed it, was simply amazing. I'm glad that we had clear skies so we could enjoy the glow, especially on streets that for whatever reason don't have the street lights on. What's up with that?

Anyway ... I've done a few Runfession posts, but thought today I'd ramble about something other than running or working out. I'm going to do some plain old confessions.

1.  I did not watch the Golden Globes (that was the award show this week right?), nor do I ever watch any award shows.

2.  I've never seen half of the shows everyone raves about like Breaking Bad (as one example).

3.  I've been using my new Kindle Fire to play Sudoku more than I've been using it to read.

4.  I keep seeing recipes floating around using coconut flour. I've never tried it and almost feel like it's another fad. Please chime in on this one!

5.  I'm supremely jealous of everyone who has Monday off. Please stop bragging.

6.  I've only ever watched American Idol for the tail end of one season. It was when Kris Allen was on. He's an Arkansas Native and his mom works for my company. I felt sort of obligated.

7.  I eat the same breakfast Monday through Friday. If I were to run out of a component to that breakfast, it would likely, no it would, throw me into a total tailspin (I know this because it has happened). 
8. I ran one extra mile this morning to round out the miles to an even 30 rather than 29.

Ok, your turn. Give me a confession!

  1. Don't worry about the coconut flour. You really don't need it if you have Allmond meal. It's more for people who can't have nuts. But it's always great to try. You know?

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
