Happy October y'all! Sorry for the no-post on Friday. I couldn't think of a good topic for Friday 5, and I didn't want to force it. I was also tired since fall is here and the mornings are dark. The caffeine had not kicked in yet and I wasn't feeling creative.
It may be fall, but it's still staying light enough for me to run outside after work. Friday I ran 3.5 miles outside, and it was the first solid time I ran outside since Tink. I was doing good with 2/1 intervals until about the last 2/3 of a mile, then I had to adjust to 1/1 due to my cardio and heavy legs. I didn't have much left in my legs at 3.5, and by that point, I was back at my apartment building. I was at 3.25 when I got to my complex, then ran through the roads for another .25 miles. I don't think I could've done another .5 to get to 4 miles and wrap up my virtual run. I'll aim for 4 at a different time. Now that I can get outside, I need to sharpen my cardio and get my legs used to the terrain again.
Saturday was Pure Barre, errands, then a painting class. I wanted something Halloween, so I painted this:
I also really like the musical and have been listening to the soundtrack. It ties in to Halloween. I started my Halloween viewing with an episode from the Big Bang Theory and the first Harry Potter, and should be getting Rocky Horror from Netflix tomorrow. Yes, it's quite weird, but I really like the first part of the movie, with some good songs. After that, I'll decide whether to keep watching. Hence, it's a Netflix movie and not one I own. I like weird things, but Rocky Horror is on its own.
Sunday was another great day for fall weather, and I met my cousin for lunch. Our routine is to eat lunch, then do window shopping in the outdoor shopping complex. It was so nice we even sat in the outdoor patio for lunch, and it felt great. A little breeze, and shade on the patio. I made sure to get something for leftovers since that means no cooking for one night during the week. I'm in favor of those days, and include them with meal prep.
Stay tuned tomorrow for a big announcement tied in to TOTR.
