Fun for Friday - Reoccurring Dreams



Let's talk dreams, and not the hopes and wishes for the future type, but those you have when sleeping. I mean, it's Fun for Friday after all right?

Do you have those weird dreams that keep reoccurring? Maybe not nightly, but often enough that you remember having them. They tend to be mostly the same, only slight variations perhaps.

Contact too large. As in it's like the size of my hand and I'm trying to squish it into my eye.

One leg longer than the other. Which is much different than one leg being shorter right?

Falling with stomach drop sensation. I hate hate hate that feeling.

Horror novel ideas. I have always had very horror-movie like dreams. Jason thinks I should write them down.

Racing a full-marathon dream. In this dream, I am getting lost on the course that becomes more like trail running and rock climbing or starting a race too late.

Late to a race. Short distance racing where I'm running late to the start and miss the start completely.

Can't find a classroom and have a test. I'm in college and trying to find a math class that I've not gone to the entire year. The worst part is that I know there's a test that day.

Forgotten locker combo. I don't ever remember being worried about my locker combo in high school, but apparently it's a big concern now.

Ok, your turn. What's an oddball dream that you have often?

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…

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).

Piriformis Update & Grilled Veggie Salad

New Piriformis Exercises
Today wasn't too terrible for a Monday. Of course, I did leave a little early. That always helps huh ;-) I had another round of physical therapy today. My PT has been really researching piriformis syndrome and found an interesting article that discusses the use of McKenzie Exercises - typically used for back pain.

I have started adding in low back extensions (one of the exercises) but now have a whole new list of exercises to add into my workout rotations. But, if it helps, I'll do it. I also asked her about dry needling (thanks Sarena), which is sort of similar to acupuncture, but is more about trigger point and intramuscular stimulation.

And I'm glad I asked because the timing is uncanny. One of the doctor's in the clinic happens to be going to get certified this weekend. They both believe that I am a prime candidate for the procedure. So we'll see how that goes. Kind of scared because I hate hate hate needles.

Have any of you tried dry…
