Vegas...the good, the bad and the ugly.

Wednesday, December 07, 2011

My husband and I headed out to Las Vegas on Friday for the Rock and Roll Half Marathon on Sunday. Here's a plot synopsis.
The good:
I got to meet up with a spark friend, JLITT62 a couple of times and we had a great time.
I got my first foot massage on Monday....that really helped a lot because I did a ton of walking.
The bad:
I forgot the brownies I was bringing for JLITT and had to turn around and pick them up from home. This added an hour on to our already long drive. I didn't want to disappoint, though.
Circus Circus is really, really far from any other "good" hotels. We did a lot of walking which was good and bad. I definitely got a lot of exercise and it doesn't seem like I did anything bad to my recovering foot.
The ugly:
The whole race organization. No, I didn't run it but I heard and saw a lot of bad. They didn't do a good job of letting people know where they needed to be. Not cool. They promised shuttles back to the other hotels and we couldn't find them. They ran out of water at some of the stations and they ran out of medals for the runners. They also had green bananas which is pretty crappy. Part of the problem was probably due to the Las Vegas hotel policy of making everybody walk through the hotel (I assume that's a policy...you certainly do a lot of walking through casinos to get anywhere). Thousands of cold, tired, hungry runners having to slog through the hotel. I felt bad for them.
Would I go and do it again (when I'm running again)....maybe but I'd wait a couple of years for them to work out the bugs.
Doing lots of laundry and raking leaves today. Back to work tomorrow.

    Interesting about the race. I haven't done an RNR yet, but as you know...it's on my bucket list. Glad you had fun with your husband, though. Hard to go wrong with a Vegas vacation...except, of course, if you're not ready to do a lot of walking. And wow...running out of water in Vegas is NOT good! Hopefully, they'll get it together in future years!

    I've heard mixed things about those RnR races - because they're privately owned and not races for charities (which always seem better coordinated) I'm sorry you had such a yucky experience. The good sounds like it was definitely good though. Vegas is always a fun time! Keep up the great work hon! Hope you have a great day!

    Oh that foot massage sounds sooooo good! I bet you enjoyed that!
That was REALLY SWEET of you to turn all the way back to get those brownies, you are a trooper and a true friend.

WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW On the RNR Marathon in Vegas, was this their 1st year in Vegas? I ask b/c RNR marathons have been going on for years. I did my 1st marathon through RNR in San Diego and it was great, everything went smoothly, weather was AWESOME, and the second one was Country Western Marathon (still held by same company just CW) in Nashville. Though me and my sister did it through The Leaukemia Society so they pretty much had everything already planned for us and made sure we got to where we needed to be, etc. Sorry you had to experience this especially your poor husband. I cannot imagine a marathon event running out of water at some stations, how awful.

GLAD TO HAVE YOU BACK, MISSED YA!

    I'm glad the foot isn't the worse for wear! I walked up to fashion show mall, around a lot of it, and all the way back Tuesday. Seriously, what was I thinking?

You should've left the brownies - I would never have known - but I'm glad you didn't & appreciate all that effort!

    I think all RnRs are probably growing way too fast and the management isn't controlling the issue. Some say for pure greed? If you look at the LV RnR "official" FB page, it has a lot of bad stuff there. Even people collapsing with no aid. I'm pretty sure I won't do another and apparently Sav was pretty well organized. Maybe I just don't like big races.

How did your husband do? I'm sure JLITT62 really appreciated the brownies. You are so sweet! At least it's a very short work week for you.

    I've done 3 RnR's now (one marathon, two Halves) and they ran out of stuff at all of them. I don't know whether that means they cut corners or that they don't have good control over people who are handing things out. But to run out of water is not a good thing. People running slower marathons seem most vulnerable. They were out of mylar blankets when I finished (fortunately DH was there with my jacket). I heard lots of complaints from slower marathoners this year in SA that there was little to eat or drink at the finish line and that some of the aid stations ran out of water. Given the heat (which wasn't a surprise) that's really worrisome to me. It is a zoo in the finish area and I suspect many early finishers helped themselves to way more than their share. But the race organizers should either control that or plan for it. IMHO :-)

I hope we'll be seeing a race report from you in the near future. I'm glad your feet held up. That's a good sign.

    Sorry it didn't turn out quite the way you envisioned it, but great you got to meet up with JLITT62. I've heard some not so nice things about the LV half marathon from others - hopefully they will work the kinks out, but running out of medals is absolutely HORRIBLE. Poor planning on someone's part - shame.

    Personally, I've always thought that LV is a huge sewer pit. Absolutely nothing fun about it. However, some enjoy it and to each their own. I didn't realize you drove; wonder how long it took. I met my cousin there a few years ago, before she died. It takes me about 7 hours from SanDiego. (driving the speed limits and stopping to stretch) Some do it in 5 hours.

My brother and my husband's sister came over for Thanksgiving. We made turkey breast and gravy, green beans, stuffing in the crockpot, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole and of course the pumpkin pie I baked the other day.
Here they are:






Very tasty.
My brother stayed the night and on Friday we went to the auto show in San Francisco. Sorry, no pics of the cars. We walked around for a while and tried to avoid the big crowds. We went to Rasputin Music and looked at CDs and bought some chocolate at Ghirardelli.

Vacation Day

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Hi Everybody!
I've been keeping up with my Slim in 6. I got on the incline trainer for 35 minutes this morning and then did Burn it Up and Slim & Limber.
After a shower a snack it was time to get busy on this vacation day. The big project: pumpkin pie. It took a lot longer than I expected. I forgot about having to chill the dough for an hour. Then I forgot about having to wait an hour after mixing the filling before putting it in the pie. Anyway, it all turned out okay in the end. The gash is from a piece of foil that I was using to shield the crust.

Then I hemmed a pair of jeans. By hand...I didn't feel like dealing with the sewing machine today.
Many loads of laundry including the sheets in the guest bedroom were done today. My brother is staying the night tomorrow so we can head out to the auto show early on Friday. The reason the guest bedroom sheets needed cleaning was because of the newest addition to our household, Callie. She didn't know where the litter box was so she used the bed. My husband rescued her from outside. She was a feral cat living in our front yard. She's still skittish around people but is very friendly with Malika. We can get closer to her every day.
Isn't she adorable?

Cleaning needs to be done. Don't worry, I've already cleaned up all that paper.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I hope you can spend it with friends or family or both.

Sunday Morning

Sunday, November 20, 2011

I have finished week two of Slim in 6 and I'm ready to start week three and the final workout of the set, Burn it Up. Yesterday I did the elliptical for 30 minutes and other than my ankle being a little cranky for part of it, it went very well. I'm planning to try out a little walk/hike on the incline trainer this morning. I have the NordicTrack that Jillian Michaels promotes (an older model) and some of her workout SD cards so I'm going to do #1 this morning....20 minutes...before attempting my Burn it Up. Hopefully it will all go well.
I emailed the podiatrist on Friday to make sure all the weird foot/ankle stuff was in the normal range of things:
Hi Dr. XXX,
My foot, especially the outer ankle, has been sore. It comes and goes sort of randomly all over. Not necessarily when I'm walking or standing but sometimes just when I'm sitting doing nothing. I assume it's because it's still getting used to not having the boot on. Calves and shins have been sore, too. Does it usually take longer than 2 weeks? I'd like to do a little walking but don't want to push it to quickly.
Thanks,
Natalie

His reply:
HI Natalie,
Yes, being in the boot can lead to the kind of symptoms you're having. Unless things are very uncomfortable I would recommend that you continue activities of daily living and not try to limit your activity. Your feet and legs should adjust. You could consider ibuprofen or naproxen as an interim way to get through the pain. If this continues we could talk about other medications especially if you continue to have pain during non-weight bearing periods. I'd be happy to call you or see you again if you want to discuss this further.

So I guess I'm doing okay. It hasn't really been painful enough for me to even consider ibuprofen but I took one last night to take any inflammation down.

I'll be heading down to get some water and then come back up and try my little workout.
Then there will be some banana bread baking...deciding if I'll throw in some macadamia nuts and coconut instead of the usual walnuts....hmmmmmm...
Happy Sunday!

    It concerns me that your doctor mentions only medication and not PT. Your tendons/ligaments/muscles could well be tight or strained from being immobile for so long and just need careful stretching or strengthening. In essence, you didn't use them for quite a long period of time.
