Runners are Thinkers - Random Running Thoughts

I had meant to do a Tasty Tuesday recipe today. But I was lazy over the weekend and didn't edit the photos. I was thinking about that on my morning run. I was thinking a lot actually. I'm certain that most runners tend to have a million and one thoughts flitting around during any given run. If you're like me, they come in spurts and rarely string together. SQUIRREL.

Just for fun, I thought I'd share some of the random, flitting thoughts from this morning.

  • How is it already 65 degrees, we didn't even make it to 65 degrees Thursday through Saturday. 
  • Thank goodness for the wind.
  • Ok, that's enough wind. 
  • I think I'll stick to 6 miles today. Definitely no more than 7. 
  • It might be a really pretty sunrise. Maybe I should have headed north first. 
  • I can't believe how light it is already. 
  • Why are there so many people out driving around at this ungodly hour? Shouldn't they be sleeping?
  • Only runners should be out this early. 
  • I hope there are cars coming at the next intersection. 
  • Ok, too many cars. Hurry it up already.
  • I'm defiantly not running around the Arts Center today. High five to that. 
  • Crud, I'm going to miss the sunrise I think. Should have gone north first.
  • Wait, gates, tents, what's going on. 
  • What do you mean I can't run through there, that's my route. That's MY route!
  • Stupid Riverfest. Why are they setting up already, it's only Tuesday.
  • Now I have to figure out another route. Which way can I go ... hmmm ... 
  • Oh look, other runners!
  • Ok, why do they keep digging up the streets? That makes it so hard to run on. 
  • I would run on the sidewalk if they were remotely decent, and now the street is all torn up. 
  • Man I need the wind. I should have brought water.
  • I hate carrying my water bottle.
  • I need to do weights at lunch. Yep, weights at lunch for sure.
  • What mile am I at. Man. I have to go around the Arts Center after all. Shoot.
  • Oh look, I hit mile 7 really close to the Little Rock Marathon Mile 7 Marker. That's kind of cool.
  • Guess I'll finish out to 8.
  • Ready to be done.
  • Hopefully I'll stop sweating.


  • But first, let me take a selfie.

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
