Sometimes I ...

I want to say Happy Tuesday! But Tuesday always feels like a weird day of the week. It's better than Monday, but not quite Hump Day. It's almost the middle child of the week isn't it? Yes, technically Wednesday should be, but people get oddly happy about Wednesday.

I've not been feeling uber creative in the kitchen, so I don't have any recipes. My weekend was low-key so not tons to share unless I tell you that I ran (again), that I hate humidity (again), that I enjoyed pool time and reading (always a bonus though). I'd love to share some awesome training tips or words of motivation, or something inspiring. But I'm not feeling terribly inspiring.

I am feeling honest, however. I thought it might be a Tell it Like it Is kind of day. Sometimes getting things out of my head is helpful - maybe it'll open up some space for better creativity. So here we (I) go.

Sometimes I ...

Don't feel like lifting weights. I typically enjoy lifting. I love how lifting re-shapes your body. I love looking strong. But sometimes, it's just tiring to think about.

Hate cooking. There are days when I look forward to getting in the kitchen, then there are days when the mere thought makes me wish I had cereal on hand.

Feel incredibly lonely. I'm an introvert. I do it to myself. But there are times, sitting in groups, when I feel utterly alone, far more alone than when I really actually am alone.

Don't want to run with anyone. There are days when I just need to be outside on my own. My own pace, my own distance, my own thoughts.

Don't want to run alone. Sometimes the thought of stepping outside and hitting the pavement alone, makes me rather sad, almost dread the run, especially when I pass by other runners grouped together.

Just want to stay home all weekend. The reason? So I don't feel the need to do hair and makeup. If I leave the house, it can be some basic errands where I can wear running shorts, tank, hat. Or a super laid back restaurant where I don't feel out of place for not being dressed up.

Wish I was more focused. I tend to have tons of ideas (for workouts, blog posts, business plans) but I struggle buckling down and staying focused. Maybe some of it's self-doubt <--- sometimes I am honest with myself.

Am really lazy. Truly. I may not slack on workouts, but man I can sometimes slack on house work. I'm great at living out of the laundry basket.

What are your "sometimes?"

  1. Sometimes I want to be lazy and lay around and eat pizza; sometimes I want to read and not go to the grocery store or care if we even have anything to eat. Sometimes I just want a day off-ha! Thank you for the post and for "telling it like it is." It's nice to hear I'm not alone in the world!

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

Hump Day and More Pineapples

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
