Happy Friday! Anyone else in disbelief that Halloween is next week? I always feel like the rest of the year flies by after Halloween because the holidays are always so hectic/busy.
As usual, since it’s the last Friday of the month, I’m linking up with Marcia from Marcia’s Healthy Slice for Runfessions. Let’s get this party started!
I runfess that I’m looking forward to volunteering at the New York City Marathon Expo next week
Last year I volunteered at the NYCM Expo and it was so much fun so I’m looking forward to doing it again! This year I’ll be giving out the official race shirts on 11/1 from 9am – 2pm. If you’re running NYCM and will be at the Expo, stop by and say Hi! 🙂
I runfess that my nutrition has gone off the rails
I’ll admit that my post-marathon nutrition has not been the best. I’ve been using this week to start the process of getting back on track – meal prepping, etc. It’s a process, but I know that I’ll be able to get back to my 80/20 plan (eating healthy 80% of the time / indulging 20% of the time).
I runfess that I’ve already started looking at races for 2020
I had a lot of down time last week so I started looking at races for 2020. I haven’t registered for any races yet, but I really want to do the Detroit Free Press Half Marathon because you get to run through Canada. I’d also like to try to get out to Seattle for a race so that I can visit one of my best friends.
I runfess that I’m secretly excited about Hell Week at OrangeTheory Fitness
Hell Week officially started yesterday and I can already tell it’s gonna be a week full of intense workouts. What exactly is Hell Week? It’s a grueling but fun series of workouts in the days leading up to Halloween and runs from October 24-31 every year. The goal is to complete a minimum of 5 out of 8 workouts during that week. If you do this, you get the official Hell Week shirt. Each workout will have a theme as well. Although it sounds intense, I’m kind of looking forward to the challenge!
I runfess that I’m looking forward to doing more Peloton rides
Although I tried to keep up with all of my workouts during marathon training, my Peloton cycle classes took a big hit. It was really hard for me to fit in the cycle classes because I didn’t want to slack off on strength training (boot camp, OTF classes). now that my schedule has opened up more, I’m planning on getting in 2-3 cycle classes a week and I can’t wait because I’ve really missed it!
That’s it for this month – thanks for reading my runfessions! I hope that you have a great weekend!
I’m also linking up for Fridays with Fairytales and Fitness from Fairytales and Fitness.
Do you have anything you want to runfess for October?
