Happy Halloween! Here in Indiana, the weather has been a rainy bust all day, and trick-or-treating was even moved to tomorrow night in several counties due to powerful winds and storms! I can picture this in movie form: Halloween is threatened to be cancelled by the evil parents of the city council, and a group of costumed kids band together to save the day and bring candy to all. I would totally rent it.
I’m celebrating by working on a research presentation while watching The Addams Family and eating microwaved s’mores by myself (awesome). The Addams Family is a good background movie because I don’t think it’s very interesting, so I can finish the presentation without getting too distracted.
Tomorrow I plan to celebrate Halloween by buying discount candy, which is actually the best part about Halloween. It’s kind of a tradition (FYI Walgreens seems to have the best post-Halloween selection and deals).
Top five Halloween picks:
- Pretzel M&Ms
- Take 5
- Kit Kat
- 100 Grand
- Peanut Butter Snickers
With all of this candy I plan on eating soon, maybe I will actually feel like running. This week has been more resting than running– the end(ish) of the semester (i.e. now) is super swamped, so I am saving most of my energy for my brain. For whatever reason, whenever my brain is drained, my legs also feel tired and don’t want to run. I’ve forced myself out a few times, and here’s what’s happened in the workout realm:
Sunday: 5 miles + bodyweight strength (lunges, squats, push ups, tri dips)
Tuesday: 6 miles speed: 2, 6 x 0.5, 1. This wasn’t super fast (ever repeat got slower and slower), but the point was to fit in some speed before the race this weekend.
Wednesday: 6 easy in the morning; 2.5 extra easy in the evening (social run; we stopped about 10 times for an extended fall photo shoot, which I was totally okay with).
Tomorrow I would like to run a shake out 2-3 miles, and the Indy Half is on Saturday!
